Why Are We Nigerians So Lazy? by Abagworo(m): 11:31am On Sep 05, 2010
A true account and analysis of Nigeria and the people that inhabit the country indicates epitome of laziness. Irrespective of ethnic affiliations, we have all thrown hard work into a bin of toxic waste.We cannot farm,we cannot manufacture,we cannot maintain our little infrastructure. Quest for degrees without aims to achieve technological advancement.We disregard the hard working few like recyclers(wrongfully termed scavengers),wielders,farmers,fishermen,palm wine tappers,shoe makers and tailors.These people are actually contributing more than politicians and oil tycoons whom we revere so much.

U must be yoruba(no offence).Nigerians r d most enterprising .I have not seen any country apart 4rm China that beats Nigeria in hard work.When u look at d many problems in this country,nothing stops Nigeria 4rm being another Sudan,Somalia e.t.c.But instead,we r determined 2 make it against all odds.U hardly hear us protest cos we don't even rely on d govt any longer.If u have been 2 south africa dat dwarfs us in everything,yet they r very lazy and rely on d govt 2 do almost everything 4 them,u'll not say this.SO my friend,like snowdrop says u got it all wrong.

Why is no one paying attention to the Yoruba in this election?

And we care?

We control the nation through economics. And we did it fairly.

All these Yorubas and other tribes in top positions and what has that done for their people. NOTHING. Funny!  grin Yorubas are still backwards and begging. Igbos are still improving their livelihoods.

Name one thing that the Yorubas are better at doing than the Igbos.

All I know is one thing and that is RUNNING.

Your reason could not be more than a tribalistic one .your premise would have been that ''yoruba are the only lazy ones i.e if poster is a yoruba while ibo are hard-working'' but shame on you,the poster is your brother.

Saying "you must be yoruba" implies Yoruba pple are lazy. at least dat was the first thing that came to my head so much so dat i did not bother to read the

Re: Why Are We Nigerians So Lazy? by mensdept: 6:55pm On Sep 05, 2010
Some Nigerians are lazy, others cowards, yet still, others very hard working, brave, and true professionals.

The problem with Naija simply is leadership, and the bad and ugly there trickle down into society as a whole.

Why must everything be turned into Igbo versus Yoruba? This is getting ridiculously boring.
Re: Why Are We Nigerians So Lazy? by Abagworo(m): 11:31pm On Sep 05, 2010
The legendary hardwork of Nigerians is nothing but marketing other peoples goods or driving other peoples cars as cab men.which goods do we manufacture?we depend on the extraction and mining industry which we have to pay foreign expatriates heavily to do the work.
Re: Why Are We Nigerians So Lazy? by Abagworo(m): 5:52pm On Dec 22, 2010
I am still convinced that we are lazy and too dependent on foreign goods and services.The evidences keep recurring each passing day.
Re: Why Are We Nigerians So Lazy? by Nobody: 5:55pm On Dec 22, 2010
I beg to differ. My grandma send all her children through school, uni, grad, med sch, etc, with farming.
She's in Naija now, and would rather use her farms to support herself than to have money sent to her.
Imagine, trying to send money to this woman is harder than eng. school.  grin

However, some new generation wants the easy way out tho. I.e kidnapping, Okija shrine, drugs, etc
Re: Why Are We Nigerians So Lazy? by jason123: 6:01pm On Dec 22, 2010
I think its only MARXISM and Federalism that would work in Nigeria. Everyone knows nigerians are lazy yet they love to keep to themselves (ethnically). so regional government and Marxism would work. Imo Undecided

Thank you very much for coming up with a fact.Our grand parents were devoid of this belief in hand outs and easy money.I don't know if oil caused all these.It pains me deeply each time I think of what our future will be like.Even our parents got their degrees through hard work and studies but today we buy ours with money.
