|Very Hilarious: Nigeria Names Vs America And Europe Names: by eamon360(m): 3:12pm On Mar 29, 2017|
Good day nairalanders. I know I'm not suppose to be doing this, but for the sake of fun lovers in the house I'm going to tell you guys my hillarious opinion by comparing the way Nigerian name state, street, football clubs and the way their european and American counterparts name theirs. You will agree with me that most of the states and streets in Nigeria is being named by our fore fathers. Also was the states in America and Europe was named by their fore fathers. But when you begin to compare names, you will find out that our fore fathers didn't do a great job compare 2 their Americans and European counterparts. When you travel to Ameriaca for Example you hear name of states like California, Florida, Texas, Georgia, Maryland etc... While Italy in Europe, you will hear places like Milan, Napoles, Turin, Genoa, Florence, Palermo etc... My brother come to Nigeria and hear names of states. One needs to wonder what they were thinking before such ideal came into their mind. You will hear Nasarawa, Abiokuta, umuahia, Abakiliki, maduguri etc... The truth is, Our fore fathers no try for that one. Now let's move away from names of state and check what the name their streest. When you go to America you hear street like W Rodney St, N Everett Ave, E Alice St, N commercial Ave, etc...Italy in Europe, you hear names of streets as via Baccina, Piazza del Grillo, madonna del monti, via dei serpenti, via del colosseo. Oya, make we hear our own. Come to Nigeria, you will here funny streets names like Usunobun St, Aigbedion St, Akenuwa St, Akugbe St, Agbelekale, Esuyago, Katampe street, etc... Now let's check the names of football clubs. Truth be told, the way Europeans name their football clubs sounds so nice that one will like to watch their football games live. You hear names like chelsea, Arsenal, Real madrid, manchester united, barcelona, bayarn munich, etc. Hearing the names of football clubs in Nigeria, one will think they are people going for war. You will hear club like Ekanemi Warriors ( my brother wetin warrior get to do with football? Na fight?), Eyimba of Aba (who dey follow Aba dey drag d club), kano pillars (Aboki, abeg wetin pillars gat to do with football), sharks of portharcut (wat of Tilapia of portharcut?). Let's keep the fun coming. List funny street names, football clubs you know. Let's laff

They represent our Tradition because that is what we are made up of. We are not of English Origin to be answering Florence, or Mary Land.
Abeokuta, Abakiliki and the rest of them are our names and trying to claim foreign in everything is not encouraging.
Why is your village not named in English ?

*AVOID SLEEPING IN CHURCH!!* it's very bad
I was sleeping in the church last Sunday and the usher woke me up...
Immediately he woke me up from my sleep the next thing I heard was the pastor saying... "Please stand up"
I stood up without knowing the reason and the people were clapping for me..!! Surprisingly for me I look around and I was the only one standing up ...then the next thing I heard. ...
*PASTOR*:- "Thank you Jesus!!! Any other person who will give us another one million naira for our church project ?"
*I Fainted*...hahaha... Abeg don't laugh all alone ok ....forward as received.
