Nigerians are just too loud. We are loud not only at public places, we are loud at home. We are embarrassingly loud at airports.We are loud at parties. We are loud at restaurants and we just can’t blame the incessant noise from generators for this manner. It’s annoying, it real does get to me and I can never get use to it.
Not every Nigerian is corrupt, however, you may almost believe everyone is. Corruption is bred in Nigeria. The system germinates it. The officials expect it. The reputation of this great nation has been bastardised by this evil growth. You are almost expected not to be clean as a Nigerian doing business. It has not helped when you are introduced abroad as a Nigerian.
3. In the wrong and still argue like its the right.
This habit is unbelievably annoying, what can I say. Let me give you an example.Just one. A vehicle or commercial motorcyclist (better known as okada) coming head on against you, obviously on the wrong lane. What have you, the offending driver casting abuses your way. What are you expected to do? Join in the madness and argue you are in the right? Duh!!
4. Artisans and Pessimists
Now, carpenters, mechanics, plumbers, cooks….you name it are far from qualified, a majority of them. They over charge you for a job, you are doomed if you don’t haggle. You are further doomed if you pay without a haggle. The result will end up been the same, a shabby job. The mechanic repairer sees himself as an engineer. Now you get my point.
And as for pessimism, it almost pushes me to the edge. Nigerians, a majority of us are so set in our ways. Instead of looking forward to new ideas, they will tell you why “it can’t be done” boss. It’s always a case of nodding of head from east to west confidently as if they actually know what they are talking about, but a majority of the time, they know “jack”. So annoying.
Nigerians are embarrassingly aggressive at the slightest of misdemeanour. An average Nigerian thinks he or she is in the know how. They waste know time in arguing a point. This messed up attitude is all but common amongst Nigerians.
Lack of electricity is just …..
I just don’t get it that in the 21st century, Nigeria is yet to figure out how we an have uninterrupted power supply.
7. Fear of God
Nigerians are known for worshipping God. On Friday, roads are blocked by Muslims attending Mosques. On Sunday, churches are filled to the brim. So, tell me, what happens on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday? From the look of it, we suspend all common sense with the fear of God till the following Friday and Sunday, when we all of a sudden become spiritual. Our fear of God does not spill over to taking care of each other and most importantly the country.
