Let me add some of the lies our elders really washed us with.


1. I will make $1 = 1naira
2. I will defeat Boko Haram within 3months in Office
3. I will create job to employ 3million, I mean 3million people per year (which kind lie be this?)
4. Fuel will reduce to 35naira

Abeg if you remember some of the lies, help me add yours.

5. I will not go abroad for treatment

Symorne:
Numerous primitive superstitious tales.
Was told not sit on a grinding stone, that my mother would die if I do so.
Someone once told me not to draw line on the ground, that if an ant walked into it, it is death.
Can't mention them all.

They were neither primitive nor superstitious but needed to maintain sanity in the community.
Sitting on a grinding stone is not good for various reasons and they found a way to discourage people from doing so.

How can you call your elders liars? The words of our fathers are words of wisdom a wise man hears them and become wiser.
Those stories where made up to keep you from certain bad behaviors. For example the one about whistles in the afternoon is just to keep your noise down to allow them relax.

That if you stand on a rock/stone,you won't grow tall again.

Answering your name when you thought that someone is calling you is a taboo.

When you are walking and saw a drawn line on your way, don't cross it. Look for another way to pass. Your destiny will be destroyed if you do.

Mrs.koikoi, and her infamous shoe, the pretty teacher that died and her ghost was haunting the community school (I nearly died of fear because of this one grin)

The India and Nigeria match. 100-1 grin. I think everyone was served this lie with hot peppersoup and chilled drink cheesy
Whoever generated that farce must be the GOC., hellfire cheesy cheesy cheesy
