|How Many States Have You Visited In Nigeria? by thepatroit: 4:36pm On May 10, 2015|
How many states have you been to in Nigeria?
It was during the just concluded general elections that I realized some Nigerians would just sit in the comfort of their homes to sprout nonsense. They've never traveled out of their local government, not to talk of their state. Hence the misconception about other tribes. I also learnt that our location at a particular time tends to influence our reasoning capabilities. At this juncture, I must say that the NYSC scheme should be scrapped. It is clearly not doing its job anymore. I learnt it was instituted to instill unity in our country, but I've realized that people tend to focus on only the negative sides of places they served in. For instance, ask an average youth who served in the north about northerners. I bet you all he or she would be able to say is the backwardness of the people. Their easy-going way of life, their cheap food and transportation wouldn't be taken into cognizance. We all need to change our mentality.
Case in point...
*I'm from Delta state (Area! Warri no dey carry last! I love my rich culture. I love my mama's place also (Edo state-Oba atokpe eh! Ise) Rivers state's girls are stunning! ( Abeg dem still dey make Gibsco bread? E don they wey I reach Ph)
*I schooled in the east (I've never seen a more industrious people. You can get anything you want at 5am in the market, ndewo, jusike, ogbasaragi? Church agbasala, their delicious soups, i learnt how to eat okpa by force. Igbo Kwenu!)
*I served in the west (I'm still tripping for how respectful they can be, they even greet their juniors there-ekaaro, ekasun, ekuise, ekujoko, and I received a lot of favours as a corper and I love how they strive for education. Schools plenty for there ehn! And they sabi curse sha which I enjoyed. Omo ale jati jati, shey won leh enyin?)
*and I'm presently working on a contract job in the north (I'm so flexing their Kunu haya, fura de nunu, gas meat, chicken Suya, thirty naira transport fare, hundred naira tomatoes wey go full pot, easy way of life and God damn beautiful Fulani girls. Once they know you're not Hausa yet you can speak and understand the language a little,(Ina kwana, Ina uni, sai gobe, nagode) they strive to teach you and grant you favors. I dey plan to follow Musa enter mosque pray with them)
No tribe is perfect. Now which tribe should I hate?
The six geo-political zones i've been to in alphabetical order
14. Delta (my state)

Places that I have visited and lived include :
Anambra - NYSC
I am dying to visit other SE and SS.
I could be wrong but aside from our polithiefcians that plays ethnic and religious cards which they know appeal to many because of their selfish gains, most Nigerians that are tribalist are those who have not left their village let alone their local government. When your mingle, you have broader view and you tolerate people more.
