Many will people think their father has the smallest farm in the village until they visit other people's farm. Nigeria may be in a deep situation right now but even at that we're better than other nations especially in here Africa. I'm not a buhari supporter but our democracy and freedom better pass some other country.
There is money in Nigeria, but we don't know how to manage the resources to make wealth. All the billions that politicians are looting does not come from thin air, it's from the country, let us get it back!. The are planning to leave this country and so are the commoners, if everyone leaves who will develop Nigeria? The Chinese?
National development is down-upward movement. If all we citizens do is to sulk and curse the nation and the black race, Nigeria will remain the same or worse in 30years. How many people pray for the nation and it's leaders or at least say "God bless Nigeria?" If the little factors of our society are messed up then the big things like education, healthcare, economy, security, roads, housing etc will be messed up. We say "corrupt politicians, corrupt politicians" but I tell you, some ordinary Nigerian are worse, they just haven't gotten the chance.
How many of us have stood up and voiced against the series of injustice and misconduct like child abuse happening in our local communities?
How many people are interested in local community development?
Every great nation was built by it's people not the government. Let us fight for what is ours and invest in our nation positively or else those sneaky Chinese imperialists would get richer and powerful by feeding on our resources, but by then it won't be problem of the buhari and the politicians we're insulting.
Nigeria would be great if we desire it to be. Not just by mere words. God bless Nigeria.

abeg!!! Nigerians will pray and still do the opposite....

I like your OPTIMISM.

There is a popular and universally true Phrase: WORK and PRAY.
We have prayed and prayed for Nigeria, nothing has changed and it keeps getting worse.
Nigeria is very rich but the few People looting it into oblivion are the problem.
Nigerian Youths TRIED TO GET BACK THEIR COUNTRY, using the #EndSARS, #EndBadGovernment Protests but you and l saw how they were murdered in Cold Blood, using the same Armed Forces they feed and equip with out Tax.
What else do you want Nigerians to do?
Stay and die? Fight and die? Run, live and come back to fight another day?


How do you stand and fight a Govt that turns military Weapons on UNARMED Protesters, without the help of the International Community (ICC, UNHCR, Military Powers) and Nigerians in Diaspora?

It seems most Nigerians still dont understand the kind of enemy they are facing in this country. Enemies of Nigeria are mostly Politicians and Elites Govt, they will not give up without a bloody fight.
Go and read about the History of Ghana, the same country whose Citizens "ran away" from Ghana and came here to be immigrant Shoe-Shiners, teachers, menial labourers. Until Jerry Rawlings of blessed memory decided that the time has come to seize his Country back from these enemies who call themselves "Politicians and leaders".


That is the only hope for Nigeria, prayer session has come and gone.

I'm not saying that we should just pray alone. Action is king. Some kind of situation pass just mere protest. There must be a change in mindset. The visible changes of the nation depends on the invisible changes in the minds of the people. Most of our bad leaders were created by us, by the negative values of our society. Many common Nigerians are as greedy as our leaders, they just haven't gotten the opportunity to unleash, that's why. Many people complain about corruption just because it hasn't favoured them. Many pains Nigerians face everyday are inflicted upon them by fellow civilian Nigerians like themselves. Do a little study on the Nigerian society, and observe carefully how we live, deconstruct some things and you may be surprised how do ourselves. I'm not justifying the government and the politicians but if we continue with our greedy, " cut corner " and oppressive mindsets we will continue to have greedy and corrupt leaders even after a revolution. If we continue to overlook and accept corruption, exploitations and oppression in our homes, our schools, our churches, our social groups, our streets, our communities we will never beat corruption in the government. We the people are the government. We have to take responsibility and support each other

Most people get into a relationship just because they are now of age and do not have a reason to be in love or fall out of love. Being responsible in a relationship/marriage as a man or being the icing of the relationship on a steady is what a lady should be on the lookout for. You cannot just be all about sex and styles and how lasting you can be on bed or what you can receive on bed alone. There are values that makes the world a better place for both families and friends. Start by asking the right questions and you will do your self a gigantic favor in your relationship. Lets kick it off with these simple questions, shall we.....comment below if you have a question you think should be added and hit me up if you need anything at all, monetry wise or relationship wise

No matter how bad Nigeria is. Nigeria is still far better to raise a kids than South Africa. After their primary education here in South Africa they will come to Nigeria for their secondary education and then return to South Africa as all are South African citizens.

Omo, I think we should all be worried/afraid for ourselves as individuals and not just for our kids (born or unborn ones) I feared for myself in the light of brutal stories narrated by victims of SARS. There was one story in particular that made me realize this shit can happen to anyone, none of us is immune to it, hell I am not immune to their brutality either!

The story I talk about was shared on Twitter by Pastor Adegboye's wife (the twitter handle had her name on it, I can't say for sure if she was the one behind the account) A young lady went out around 7pm to get food items from her mum's shop, which wasn't far from their home. On getting to the shop area, SARS bundled her into their van where other people were being held captive. To cut a long story short, she ended up being tortured into confessing a crime she knew nothing about and spent 3 years of her life in prison (I think @ Kirikiri) before the legal team @ Redeem Church got her out.

I am in the habit of strolling out of my estate around 7 or 8pm, to get groceries or toiletries at a nearby supermarket. There's a popular fuel station where the supermarket is as well, so there's often activity there. When I watched that lady's account of her ordeal, I thought to myself, what happened to her could have easily happened to me too. Because, SARS may be parked at one corner of that fuel station bundling people away for no reason and I may end up a victim, because I went out to shop.

I have always wanted to live in Nigeria, while I continue to travel the world and visit other countries. But lately, I have been seriously contemplating relocating. I once saw a comment on NL where someone said, relocate for the sake of your unborn children and I was like, why do we make everything about children. We should be thinking of relocating for ourselves first and foremost of all, before any unborn children. You are in the land of the living, unborn children have nothing to worry about or fear yet.

I sometimes wonder why those that condemn Nigeria haven't fled to Benin or Cameroon to start life all over since Nigeria is hell for them..

The funny thing is that those that condemn Nigeria either have political apathy or support bad leaders...

Like how do u intend to better this nation when u don't play ur part?

Its easier to complain and Nigerians do it best


Yeah, like those who wanted to vote in Okota but were disrupted or people who participated in the #EndSARS protests so as to end police brutality. In both cases (out of gazillions of civil participation cases), the vast majority of Nigerians attacked and condemned those acts.

Let those who want to flee do so. Nothing stops brotha Etinosa1234 from doing bettering Nigeria. Godspeed!

Many may believe the above was written by someone who missed his medications ... or is high on something. I recommend you chew the above slowly and thoroughly..... get all the flavours out of it... then swallow and allow to digest... it is good for you.

Two things

1. Bend the tree when it is young
Abroad you cannot bend the tree as you like.... laws will restrict . you from raising your child the way you desire... and if you insist...
your children can be taken away from you. Find out why people.
return on vacation the go back without them.

2. Africa period... is about family.... sharing.... our immediate family... extended family... tribe... not nationality... tribe.... it is our culture. Our children are raised abroad they are raised in the culture of self... individualism..... every man for himself.

Guy knows what he is saying.

It's the black man's way: they let the short euphoria of having a child overcloud the negative realities of the environment in which that kid will be raised.

Whenever I see folks celebrating the birth of a child in this shithole, I asked myself if they've paused for a second and wondered what future they are leaving for their offspring.

Birthing everywhere, yet jobs are not being created to accommodate the growing population.

In 2009 I was thinking of having three children but in in 2014 I saw how naija was heading southward I considered having two kids, my brother, right now as I am talking to you in 2020 I feel like having just one child, I pray 2021 will not turn my mind against bearing an issue.

Brother the life no make sense at all. It’s the reason many of them are using blades to cut themselves when they feel they are alone in this lonely world. Zero sense of humanity, anxiety, depression and they can’t keep eye contact. This social experiment is too extreme

Yeah but you can't even get the jobs to give kids a decent life if you wanted to. The average pay of most jobs in Nigeria is 30 to 50k. Only 8 percent of Nigerians earn above 100k which is basically transport and food money for one person in a city like Lagos.

8%? Where did you get your stats?

The same people that killed the richest country in Africa want to run out and spoil other countries.

They know you well well. When your parents were bringing loot home, buying foreign visas and flashing foreign goods you cannot make on social media, you thought all these would not catch up with you?

The way you, your parents and the politicians you vote for the past 20 years prepare your bed, so shall, I say shall you lie on it.

What children? How did you turn out? Didn't many people tell you that no matter what you achieve where you are going,( if you get there)

THEY WILL SHIT ON YOU!

Which is worse? Average Tunde, Sule and Chukwu OR Big sheet scientist afraid to go to work everyday sucking up to insults.

Go ask Obama.

Stay home and farm the most arable land in the world. Otherwise Chinese will buy it and farm your land to feed their people.

Stop pokenosing in other people's land.
