Since I am the type of person that is very conscious of pronunciation of words I decided to search for the transcription of "Niger-Republic"
If its pronounced "Nee-J" or "Ny-Ja"
And to my greatest shock I found this words sufficed to Nigeria

Is this what Nigeria has been reduced to??

This is very sad and annoying at the same time
Nigeria isn't the only country into cyber crime.. In fact I feel our "Yahoo boys" are learners compared to the Russians, Chinese and even Indians

So why the term Nigeria??

I just checked to verify even though I haven't been in agreement with Oxford dictionary for some time now. That's not the bone of contention anyway, so let's move on.

Firstly, is the OP surprised at all? Nothing about Nigeria surprises me anymore. They even highlight another indigenous slang as a synonym. Nigeria is truly in a mess.

Sadly, the image of this country and her reputation ain't getting better anytime soon, unless we disintegrate or embark on a very dangerous protest that's close to a cold war.

A cold war will soon start. Yes, it will. Let just consider what is happening now as the events of pre-cold war II. In the coming years, sane Yorubas will take the drum of Odua Republic to the next level. That will be so good for everyone because there will be healthy competition among the disintegrated nations. The Oduans will be competing with Biafrans which is not bad. The Arewans will be competing with the dissolved South. Be wise and invest in your tribe. You can call me a tribal bigot but please be smart enough to know that your tribe will soon become your country. Don't loose your investment.

I care!

Even though there is no agreed‐​upon definition of a failed state, it is generally understood that when a government can no longer provide basic security to its people due to a rise in violence or extreme poverty, or loses control over part of its territory to domestic or foreign terrorist groups, the state has failed.Jul 6, 2015

But everyone in the world already knows the Nigerian prince na, the guy that has an inheritance of hundreds of millions dollars in an overseas account from his late father, King Bullionare, and he needs $20k from you to help him recover the money from his wicked uncles and relatives that want to kill him and take his inheritance because he is the only son. If you give him the $20K, then when he gets his inheritance money, he will give you half of it grin. So OP why u cum dey vex na, didn't you get your own email from the Nigerian prince? grin grin grin

It doesn't remove the fact that u take delight in aiding anyone that abuses,degrades n talk down on your country. Simply because a person you voted for didn't win an election.

Assumption is the first symptom of stupidity in humans. Did you see me voting during the previous elections, yes I wanted atiku to win until I realised that they are all the same, the fact remains that Nigeria is a baseless empty and useless hovel, that upon all its natural resources cannot even move anywhere in the world shows you how bad it is, then when election time comes there are more than four political parties, vote any other one apart from the normal bastards, mbanu you all prefer to vote in goats, protest against bad governance, mbanu some have already bad mouthed promising protests before the idiotic army or police snuffs it out, I know you won't agree with me because you are a well known sycophant but listen here one day, the beautiful ones will be born at last and they will set you foolish goats on fire

I understand what you are saying. Try to also understand what I am saying.

I am saying that it's not the dictionary's fault. What appeared are simply search history either from you or other people who have searched for letters or words related to what you typed. You are making it sound like it is the dictionary's fault or they are trying to show how bad Nigeria is. That is the orientation or thinking I am against.

Sorry if I sounded rather rash n brash at first.

You are being given a bad name, rather than reject or refute the claim of the imperialist you choose to join them in labeling your country useless as if there is a completely perfect country anywhere in the world grow up and be wise up, as you mock your country and call it bad remember that you mock yourself as a useless person because you are still part of the county.
