I`ve never been to Nigeria myself, but I do have Nigerian friends. They tell me that if a Nigerian lives somewhere else i.e outside their country, they will never want to live in Nigeria permanently again. They tell us their country is shockingly filthy. I dont understand because we non Nigerians think your country is full of rich people, the country is full of money because of oil etc, How come your gov cannot afford basic necessitied like public toilets?

I doubt we can change just yet.

except maybe the whole of Naija is razed to the ground.


Anyways, its a terrible thing i must say!!

There was a day i entered a bus down to my house from sch

i bought yoghurt and gala, when i finished with them, i put it in a nylon bag and held it.

When we got to the final busstop, a guy stopped me and was like He had been watching me

in the bus and he was amazed at what i did.

me, i was like

So now, Not throwing things out of the window is an amazement.

Throwing things anywhere is a normal thing.

GOD WILL HELP US O

You really made me laugh Sienna. Anyway I`m not going to generalise. I think the whole thing has to do with an individual, how you were brought up and the people you associate with, The other thing is if Nigerians keep quiet and protest in the newspapers and the net about poor service delivery by the Govt, nothing is ever going to change. To some people it may be a barbaric action, but protests are the only language the politicians understand. Start by taking a lot of filth and empty it in your ward councilour or Mayour`s yard, then you will take it from there. If there`s no action, give them a very good hiding. Come to South Africa and you will understand what I`m trying to say.

Dudu bobo, what kind of oyibo are u talking about? If oyibo man dump refuge on the street in nigeria it means he or she is imitating the nigerians, cos in they country it is strictly forbiding to drive and throw stuff , u wanot even have the time to do such a thing cos u will see urself as the only dirty person, Call that oyibo maan and warn him becos he cant do same in his country why doing it in Nigeria. angry, African in general have the character of throwing dirty, if u come to the area where non citizens live here in France u will notice quickly the difference. sometime they throw babe diaper, am sorry to say but i think we should try to change our dirty habit.

Fellow Nigerians,

Let me just tell you that this is not a Nigerian issue alone. I've lived in London my whole life and
to be honest the area I live now (Brixton, south west London) you can see full grown men
unrinating all over the place in broad day light. These men are men of all different nationalities
and origins. They use the public phone boxes and residential communal areas, its awful.
So please this isn't just a Nigerian problem.
Re: Nigerians And Dirty Habits: Can We Ever Change? by Nobody: 7:26pm On Sep 28, 2008
I don't think the problem is about Nigerians and their dirty habits. In every city or country in d world, one would definitely find people with clean, decent habits as well as those with dirty habits. What makes our own different is d fact that we don't have sufficient hands that do the cleaning jobs. People will rather go abroad to do dirty jobs than take up a road cleaning job back home. They will rather be 'agberos' in aba or Lagos.

Enough of reiterating the problem like a typical naija, now back to moving forward!

The government really can do something about this, and I suggest every state (particularly states with cities like aba, portharcourt, benin) should borrow a leaf from d cross-river state govt (note that I didn't mention Lagos because I feel that Fashola is really trying). The govt of Cross-River state pays N13,000 monthly to youths to do road cleaning. And believe me, when u are on the streets of calabar, fear no go let u throw away dirty for road wen u see how clean the environment is. because of this, even the people wey govt dey pay that money monthly no dey even see work to do. Abeg shey dat money too much for some oda states to pay?

ITS A DISGRACE AND BIG EMBARRASMENT TO SEE ALL THIS HAPPENING IN OUR TOWNS,
EVERYONE NEEDS TO BE EDUCATED ABOUT HYGIENE
I THINK RADIO STATIONS AND TV STATIONS SHD PLAY A MAJOR ROLE IN THIS
THERE SHD BE MASSIVE SENSITIZATION EXERCISE CONCERNING THIS

IT IS AN EYE SORE TO SEE ALL THIS UGLY MESS AROUND,
I DNT THINK IT IS DIFFICULT TO ACHIEVE THIS
THE SANITATION UNIT OR WATEVER THEY R CALLED SHD MONITOR THIS
AND CLEANLINESS SHOULD STEM FRM HOMES, KIDS SHD BE TAUGHT CLEANLINESS IN SCHOOLS

I THINK THIS WILL AT LEAST GO A LONG WAY TO IMPROVE OUR DETERIORATING SITUATION.

what you say is totally true but do not forget who you are,a NIGERIAN just like the Nigerians you call dirty because if you say Nigerians are dirty interestingly you are one of us because nobody is a saint .so if you say something first think haven't i behaved the same way before,don't just come here and criticize anyone.always remember we are all Nigerians

Re: Nigerians And Dirty Habits: Can We Ever Change? by tollu: 2:41pm On Feb 20, 2009
hah, this topic is still in existence?

Well, we still haven't changed. People still throw stuff out their cars, shite and pee on street corners and even open roads.
The question still remains, Can we ever change?
