5 Things Nigerian Adults Really Need To Stop Doing

April 19, 2021

Mummy, daddy, uncle and aunty, we shall not be beating around the bush. Here is a list of things you do that we do not appreciate and we think you need to stop doing them.

 T for Thanks.

1. Sending Whatsapp broadcasts (a.k.a forwarded many times)

Please, make it stop. The broadcasts are always so long, even if it has been forwarded to you, please send a summary if you think it’s so important and need to share that information.

2.Womb watching

‘‘They have been married for 3 years, why haven’t they given birth?’’. Please, stop it. Respectfully, mind your own business and your own kids.

3.Marriage watching

We keep saying please because we have to respect our elders. Please try to stop doing it, since marriage is sweeting you, enjoy yours.

4.Stop believing all the things you read on WhatsApp

Google has all the answers, the time you want to use to forward the BC, use it to verify that information. Thanks and God bless.

5.Stop expecting respect based on age.

You already know that gen z will tell you what it is. If you don’t respect young people, they would not magically respect you. 

T for Thanks and G for God bless.
