A Must Read For Every Nigerian
DO NOT CURSE NIGERIA
If you don’t know how you are blessed, you will think your father’s farm is worse than your friend father’s farm.
$1 is about ₦500 and so what?
Let me elucidate from my little experience. Can anyone in the US use $1 for breakfast? No!
But in Nigeria, ₦500 will give you breakfast and lunch.
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 in Nigeria!
Have you ever paid for insurance before? Insurance in the US is $280 and that is almost ₦100,000 monthly. How is it in Nigeria?
When last did you pay monthly phone bills? I pay almost ₦40,000 monthly and if I don’t, they will block my SIM. Your own MTN, Glo or any other network can be there for months without recharge.
When last did you work on Saturday and Sunday?
This I do compulsorily and on regular basis in the US.
Don’t get me wrong, the US is better than Nigeria in many ways, depending on which angle you are viewing it.
Do you want to hear the truth?
Many people in Nigeria live a more fulfilling life compared to their counterparts abroad.
Forget about all the packaging on social media and give credit to the good life you are living here.
Do you know why Nigerians living in the US quickly rush back whenever they come home visiting?
Because bills are counting and elongated absence (freedom) will put their lives in jeopardy.
If you as a black person, attempt to emulate the whites life, they will kneel on your neck.
Apart from Congo, no citizens in the entire universe enjoy life to the fullest better than Nigerians.
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.
With 8-hour job abroad, you can only pay bills, you need another 6 to 8 hours jobs to save for the future and plan good life.
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.
Always thank God wherever you may find yourself. Nigeria is good and will be Nigeria.
God bless Federal Republic of Nigeria.
