Things I Love about Nigeria

Nigeria gets a lot of bad attention… so I am here to tell you things I love about Nigeria ;)

Things I love about Nigeria by LifeAsAConvert

Networks: I love how their network constantly craps out. Go to send a message? Network goes off. Go to make a phone call? Network goes off. It’s a lovely thing.

Power Supply: Just like the networks, the power supply is awesome too. As soon as you are in the middle of making a Skype call at 2am the power goes out. Battery on your phone dead? No problem! You can charge it as soon as NEPA PHCN brings the light.

Corruption: Have you ever dealt with a corrupt official? If not, go to Nigeria. Get pulled over by the police? No problem, just give them 500 naira and you will be on your way in no time.

Cost of Data: $1 per 10 mb? No problem! That’s like paying $1 for every 3 full resolution pictures you view.

419:  As if ehn… If you thought Nigerians only scammed those outside of Nigeria you wrong. Nothing is off limits when it comes to 419.

*Just kidding, Nigeria is awesome.

What do you love about Nigeria?

    I seriously can not imagine living in a country like that. We take so much of what we have for granted here in the US.

    LOL! Sounds like a place I want to retire one day. Not! I love my country more and more each day, as much at is corrupt it’s better than many other places.

    Love me some good old fashion sarcasm ;-) I used to work in a c/s department and we had a few Nigerian reps and they were such amazing people but also glad to be in America.

    These are the things I never knew about Nigeria (so, thank you for that!) and it makes me count my own blessings living in a country like Canada!

      Thanks for reading. That was my intention of writing this post… So we could see how grateful we are for what we do have… Things that we take for granted are considered “luxury” there (and in other places too).

    I kind of thought things were pretty bad in Nigeria, although I didn’t know about a lot of those things. Must be a rough place to live!

    Well I’ve never been to Nigeria but with the bad press they’re having I know I never want to really go there.
