5 Simple Things Nigerians Find Hard To Do
1. Use waste bin: It is very common to see a Nigerian throw trash by the road side or out of a moving vehicle without any sense of guilt. No matter how ugly it makes the environment, some Nigerians could care less and still go ahead and litter everywhere with trash.
2. Abide by traffic rules: The only time a Nigerian can be seen acting properly on the road is when constituted authority is on ground to punish offenders. Otherwise, a Nigerian driver could care less, if there is a zebra crossing ahead.
3. Not prudent: Nigerians can manage and manage when they are hustling but as soon as they hit it big, they forget everything about being prudent and become very extravagant, buying stuff with the intent to impress and intimidate. Even when on an important mission like pilgrimage abroad or official assignment, they turn it into another shopping adventure.
4. Stay quiet: When Lagos observed the ‘horn-free day’ in October 2014, Nigerians felt for once what is felt in other parts of the world. Nigerians enjoy making noise. Whether it is from a church speaker in the early hours of the morning or late at night, or a danfo or truck driver’s irritating honk or some very happy fellow shouting for no just cause, there is always something happening to disrupt the peace of the environment.
