Don't Ever Curse Your Country by julybaba(m): 4:49pm On Mar 24

1. If you don't know how you are blessed, you will think your father's farm is worse than your friend father's farm.

2. $1 is ₦500 and so what?

3. Let me elucidate from my little experience. Can anyone in the US use $1 for breakfast? No!

4. But in Nigeria, ₦500 will give you breakfast and lunch.

5.Majority of people's monthly house rent (self contained apartment) in the USA is $1,000 and above... and that is your own 2 year's rent!

6. Have you ever paid for insurance before? Insurance in the US is $280 and that is almost ₦100,000 monthly.

7. When last did you pay monthly phone bills? I pay almost ₦40,000 monthly and if I don't, they are going to block my SIM. Your own MTN can be there for months without recharge.

8. When last did you work on Saturday and Sunday?

9. This I do compulsorily and on regular basis.

10. Don't get me wrong, the US is better than Nigeria, depending on which angle you are viewing it.

11. Do you want to hear the truth?

12. Many people in Nigeria live a more fulfilling life compared to their counterparts abroad.

13. Forget about all the packaging on social media and give credit to the good life you are living.

14. Do you know why Nigerians living in the US always rush back quickly whenever they come home visiting?

15. Because bills are counting and elongated absence (freedom) will put their lives in jeopardy.

16. If you, as a black person, attempt to emulate the whites, they will kneel on your neck.

17. Apart from Congo, no citizens in the entire universe enjoy life to the fullest than Nigerians.

18. You are abundantly blessed but you don't know until you get visa and relocate abroad, that is when you will know that your 8-hour job in Nigeria with free weekend is awoof.

19. With 8-hour job abroad, you can only pay bills, you need other 6 to 8 hours jobs to save for the future and plan your life.

20. The truth is that the grass is green everywhere, it's lack of vision greed of our leaders/politicians and the skewed religious practices (which placed emphasis on miracles) that ascended Nigeria onto a myopic tentacle of complete standstill.

21. Always thank God wherever you may find yourself. Nigeria is good and will be better.

22. God bless Federal Republic of Nigeria.

You are quite right but get rid of Buhari and stop voting in useless people as your president or governors.

Someone earning #100,000 naira here is way better than someone earning $2000 in the US.

The only good thing about them there is security, Justice,and good leadership

You people will sit down in your 2 by 2 hut and be typing nonsense.

Have you heard of standard of living?

Can N500 buy you food in Banana Island? Even in random Mr. Biggs or Shoprite in any Nigerian city, N500 cannot buy you food.

There are lesser places in the USA where you can buy "$1 meal but that's not the main point.

USA is the richest country in the whole world with 18m of their 300m population being dollar millionaires. You don't expect them to be serving N200 mama put in one batcher built over a smelling gutter or canal in LA or New York just like you find in typical Nigerian cities. Nobody will buy such rubbish.

Lastly, stop glorifying poverty. Being poor is not the same thing as having inexpensive food or cost of living.

US citizens buy brand new cars and throw them away to Nigeria after abusing them for 10 years, then you save money, buy one of the used/refurbished, probably multiple accidented, flooded or sometimes totalled car and start giving thanksgiving in church. Is that not enough for you to know that both of you are not mate?

For houses, they select the best houses and government pays for them. They reimburse payment for the house for over 10 to 20 or even 30 years. That duration of reimbursement is called mortgage. If they see another beautiful house in between, they sell the other one, collect back everything they paid for the old one and ask government to pay/buy the new one for them. They start paying mortgage for the new one while the person who buys the old one will continue paying for the remaining years mortgage to government.

In Nigeria a civil servant who is paid 200k needs 20 years (without removing money for food or anything) of his salary before he can build a duplex. Any civil servant in Nigeria with a house is mostly corrupt. At least 95%.

Abeg stop glorifying poverty and madness.
