The fact that there is no other country in the world that can be like our dear Nigeria is a statement no one can contest. The truth is, some things people do in Nigeria and get away with, without any hitch, people in other country will do jail term for way less. In this piece, INFORMATION NIGERIA brings you 5 things Nigerians do/say that people who have never been to Nigeria will find absolutely weird…
1. Being the first to arrive for parties: Nigerians know how to throw a good party, with good music and good food in the right atmosphere but the problem is, Nigerians love African time and totally take pride in being the last to arrive at a party (before the food is served though) because it is seen as being too desperate with no class to be the first to arrive, something other nationals will never understand.
2.Be rich and flaunt it: Nigerians are notorious for throwing jests at people who wear simple and cheap dresses despite being rich. The general feeling is that you must wear expensive dresses if you are rich.
3. Power supply: Only Nigerians would complain when power supply lasts for more than 24hrs uninterrupted. You hear stuff like ‘Wetin happen… hope we are safe’. Elsewhere in the world, this is absolutely normal. The abnormal thing however is not having power when you’ve paid.
4. Nigerian police: When a Nigerian police turns down an offer to accept bribe, this could mean either the bribe is too small or the offender is in for a very big trouble
5. Gadget freaks: When you see someone own all the iPhone series, you are sure that person is most likely a Nigerian. A Nigerian will comfortably own the most expensive gadget with no known source of income or gadgets that cost more than a plot of land but the person still owes his landlord balance on his rent.
Which did we miss???
