Nigeria: A Land of Milk and Irony


There are many things under the sun that confound me, but this one completely beats my mind beyond measure. What shall we call it: racism or diabolism?

The value system of my countrymen is entirely warped, that most times you wonder where up is and if down is opposite it.

Many emigrants all over the world desperately scramble for citizenship in places far from home, because of the benefits attached to being a citizen, but being a local in my country appears more as a curse than a blessing, not because of the want of resources but, sadly, for the abundance of it.

It is interesting to know the preferential treatment given to foreigners that the citizens cannot dream of. How foreigners treat locals as slaves under the watch of the government. I have seen many foreigners earn fat salaries from local firms that grudgingly pay local workers stipends, foreign firms provide cargo trucks for the transportation of the already deprived, downtrodden local staff, while emigrant workers are carried around in well air-conditioned buses with a long convoy of heavily armed government men. Foreigners are bosses in the very scarce job opportunities, mostly not for the want of a local equivalent but for reasons alien to me. Armed personnel guarding foreigners and harassing locals is one form of madness that bemuses every element of my being.

The horror of watching some fellows, and their cronies sell your future and swallow the rest, is capable of sending a sane fellow into fits of madness. But interestingly, my people have remained unbelievably calm and gullible, waiting for an illusory future that probably awaits them in Hades.

Being slaves in strange lands is understandable, but being a slave in your fatherland, your land of birth and destiny, is totally unacceptable.

  1. After reading your blog post, I browsed your website a bit and noticed you aren’t ranking nearly as well in Google as you could be. I possess a handful of blogs myself, and I think you should take a look at “seowebsitetrafficnettools”, just google it. You’ll find it’s a very lovely SEO tool that can bring you a lot more visitors and improve your ranking. They have more than 30+ tools only 20$. Very cheap right? Keep up the quality posts

  2. Thanks for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do some research about this. We got a grab a book from our area library but I think I learned more clear from this post. I am very glad to see such excellent information being shared freely out there.

  4. Together with almost everything that appears to be developing inside this specific area, many of your perspectives happen to be relatively stimulating. Nonetheless, I appologize, but I can not subscribe to your whole theory, all be it radical none the less. It appears to everyone that your remarks are not entirely rationalized and in fact you are your self not even wholly convinced of the point. In any event I did take pleasure in reading it.

  5. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something informative to read?

  6. Do you mind if I quote a couple of your articles as long as I provide credit and sources back to your weblog? My blog site is in the exact same area of interest as yours and my visitors would truly benefit from a lot of the information you present here. Please let me know if this ok with you. Many thanks!
