Nigeria is indeed a great country. Although we have our challenges but I still believe we will overcome them

Now there are some things that are peculiar to Nigeria or Nigerians and they are quite hilarious. Though some are annoying and especially if you don't live in Nigeria and you came visiting.

Let me mention a few of them

1. We Nigerians have an inclination for competing over silly things such as being broke, humility, suffering, etc. Trust me if you tell an average Nigerian that you're broke, he/she will start by saying "your own is even good" and they will tell you how they've not eaten for days due to lack of money. Or you tell them of your problem, they will give you reasons why theirs is bigger than yours. We do these things like there's a prize to be won.

2. A random person disciplining a child because they feel the child is disrespectful. Neighbours sometimes hit another person's child when the parents …

Remembering the Holocaust

Image
Hey guys, today is International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the victims of the Holocaust and the theme for this year is Holocaust Remembrance : Our Shared Responsibility.

It is our duty as humans to love and respect our fellow humans. Talking about the Holocaust, it was the period around 30 January 1933 - 8 May 1945 that around 6 million European Jews and members of some groups like Gypsies and homosexuals were murdered en masse.

Adolf Hitler saw the Jews as inferior. These people were segregated. Camps and ghettos were established for them.

They were denied of basic amenities and the Jews were deprived of German citizenship. A law was even introduced that it was illegal for Germans to marry or sleep with a Jew. Their wealth were taken from them.

Churches also provided birth records of Jews to authority so that they could be identified. This goes to show the amount of hatred these people received.

Children were targeted the most because if they grew up, they would give birth t…

14 Reasons You Should be Proud of Being a Nigerian

Image
So guys, today I'll give some reasons you should be proud of being a Nigerian.
I see and hear a lot of peeps complain about why they were born as Nigerians, how they wish they can change things. C'mon , you have to accept things the way they are and learn to love and appreciate your country cos there's no going back. And no I'm not trying to preach. So let's get started.

1. Humor, we Nigerians are very creative in making fun of our situations, from our comedians to the rest of us. We make a joke even out of a disaster and we don't let the disaster hold us down. We are good in sarcasm even among friends and family.

2. We have a rich cultural heritage. With over 250 ethnic groups, you can get the best of culture here without having to travel outside Nigeria. There so many cultures one has to discover even as a Nigerian. I also love our traditional attires. Even when people from other races wear them, they still look beautiful.

3. We Nigerians have no filter. We …

Most Embarrassing Moment

Hey guys,

I know most of us must have had one of those embarrassing moments of our lives. That moment where you just want the ground to open up and swallow you. In some instances, it could be funny while in others it could be shameful.

So let me share one of my most embarrassing moments.

I had just finished my secondary education and I had this male friend who lived with his aunt. I used to go there in the afternoons
when the aunt must have gone to her office.

One fateful day, I had gone as usual. Not too long after I reached, we heard a knock on the door, lo and behold, it was his aunt.
We started panicking, looking for where I could possibly hide. And we had to resort to me hiding behind the door.

He opened the door, she walked in and asked why he took long before opening the door and he said he was in the bathroom. She went into her room, went back to the living room and started asking series of questions.

Then his little cousin started telling her about a particular aunty (whic…

Friendship

Image
Friendship can be seen as a relationship between friends. It is the emotions of friends.

A lot of folks have misunderstood the word friend. In this context that we want to talk about, a friend is someone you know well and like. People tend to misunderstand a friend as someone you only talk with, probably a colleague, neighbour, members of the same religious organization, etc.

A friend is someone you love, trust and respect while the person also does same to you. A friend is honest and loyal.

The company you keep, determines what accompany you.

Below are some characteristics of friendship

Trust: There should be a high level of trust in every friendship. You should know what your friend is capable of doing. You can't have a friend that you think is able to snitch on you. As a female, you can't have a friend you think is capable of having an affair with your man.

Respect: It is essential in all friendships. You show respect by being polite and kind. You show respect by seeking the…

Reaching there, I went to my…
