Smh. Only Nigerians would use their own legs to waka go another country for greener pastures (no be say them beg them to come o). And when they begin to prosper in that country they then suddenly feel their hosts are 'lazy'.

If you are so super, why not remain in your shythole where you people aren't lazy and make a success out of your life? Una go country wey better pass una own with a working system and all, take advantage of the system and begin to prosper and then you feel you are better than your hosts?? Gtfh.

They do that everywhere they go, especially in Africa. And that generates hostility, as can be gleaned from those comments.

My guy forget that thing. Let's tell ourselves the truth. Let's take SA as an example. Nigerians in SA (both legal and illegal ones) are nowhere close to being more successful than SA indigenes. Be it black or white.

The problem our people have in such countries is that the loud ones are more often than not into one form of illegal business or another, (e.g drug trafficking, yahoo) and these are mainly the ones that call their hosts lazy. Even in Kenya and lately Ghana, Nigerians have a reputation for being loud and annoying braggarts, and when you do your findings about such folks, you will find out that they are often yahoo boys or drug dealers.

There are foreign nationals making good money in Nigeria, yet they don't make a fuss about it out of respect for their hosts. But that is out of character for the average 'successful' Nigerian in another country. No. He must rub it in the face of his hosts that his success in their midst is so phenomenal and out-of-the-ordinary that it must be because they are lazy while he is hardworking.

Imagine a white man said this, wouldn't you have accused him of racism.
Re: Foreigners In South Africa And Citizens Speaking Up Finally. by Cousin9999: 3:40pm On Aug 29, 2020
People just need to respect each other. And Nigerians need to partner with the locals. There's no reason they can't have more symbiotic business relationships instead of fighting. There's so many benefits to that.

Wisdom to exploit... (illegal, shady methods).

SA a working system? A system where white people kept them as slaves? The white people owns the whole farm lands while SA citizens work for stipends on the farm.

Is that a working system?

That's a working system of slavery.

What has Nigeria done with its land? You import absolutely everything - can't even grow your own rice.

Look around and see how awesome oil rich countries are. Check Nigeria and the sort of shithole it is. You're in complete control of your resources and yet are TOTAL FAILURES - the Poverty Capital of the World. Why else would 800,000 of you endure the most horrific xenophobia in SA and yet refuse to go back home? grin grin grin grin

Sit down man, the SA system works far better and you just can't stand it! cool cool cool

Hence the word exploit doesn't mean shady or illegal in all context, hope that's clear enough.

Abegi. If their system was so bad, you and your brothers in the shythole (apologies to Trump for borrowing that word) won't want to die there. How many SA citizens are in Nigeria seeking greener pastures like you lots are over there in their country?? If you insist their system is not working why una sef go join dem in their so-called 'slavery'? Or did they put a gun to your heads or invite you to their country? Gtfh.
