Whoever tattooed ‘adapt or die’ into the hearts of every Nigerian finished work abeg. We give it to them.
How else can we explain Nigerians always finding new ways to survive through just about everything? Nothing has surprised us more than these 7 however. This adaptation thing is like jazz:
Do you know how mad it is that Nigerians still do not have steady electricity?
In this age of multiple electricity sources and environmentally friendly cars, we’re still dragging I better pass my neighbour with the next guy? How?
Universal healthcare is still a dream man.
For the fact that people would self-medicate and squeeze mouth at 7 different agbos before deciding to spend money at a Nigerian hospital, the Nigerian suffering is 100% ridiculous.
How wild is it that Nigerian policemen are still allowed to walk around with guns in broad daylight and rip people for their cash every other time?
Somebody actually needs to answer this.
Do you realise that we’ve taken it as normal that robbers and SARS officers in the NPF are pretty much one and the same thing?
No, you actually have to think about it. This has been happening for years and we’ve been talking about it but it’s a Nigerian normal. Who’s responsible for it.
For the fact that if you’re building a house in Nigeria, you must make room for your own borehole services?
How come the government doesn’t send us thank you cards for doing its job at this rate?
If you worked for the government all your life, why isn’t it a sure thing that your pension will come in when it’s due monthly?
And you might literally die on the line trying to recover said pension? No, the government needs to drop its jazz man plug right this minute. How is this real?
Nigerian hostels have looked like this for years and years and no one has thought to cut funding for the next unnecessary campus structure to look into this?
Are we in hell?
Routinely having to replace the shock observers in your cars while government officials meant to fix the roads cruise around in SUVs that move through potholes like Moses and the Red Sea.
We actually need to square up with these guys.
Having to choose between the same set of people like we’re in a monarchy?
When that one start and why hasn’t it ended?
What terrible things do you think Nigerians have gotten too used to?
