Live In Nigeria??! These Things Will Definitely Kill You

Nigeria my country, I sincerely love you, but I have come to the conclusion that you are going to be the death of me.

If you live in Nigeria, you would understand that we are endangered species. There should be an NGO or something set aside to preserve Nigerians, because we would soon go extinct due to the situation of things; but the rate at which we give birth is enough evidence that God is really working to ensure that there is a ‘Nigeria’. We just like to fuck!

To those who love Nigerians or love the idea of a ‘Nigeria’, here are the things we need protection from:

•SARS and the Nigerian police

• Lagos traffic

• Conductors and bus drivers

• Nigerian roads

• Thugs and agberos

• Boko Haram

• Rapists (for our female counterparts)

• Toxic masculinity ( this would be the end of both males and females)

• Child marriage.

These things are out to kill us and the list goes on and on, you can add yours in the comment section. I would have loved to talk about each of them, but the thought alone gives me mad anxiety.

I just need someone to be nice to me at the moment, because being a Nigerian is not easy.
