it is a shame and the thing dat hurt me the most was that the name \"Nigeria\" was repeated almost all the time. i was like, can\'t u guys just tell the story and forget abt Nationality. u said it once and i don\'t need to hear it over and over again.
Nigerians need to understand dat there is no easy way of making money. As long as they have this stupid mentality of fast money, they will always be in the black book.

One reason why Africa is still backwards is that we are not patient enough to plant things and watch them grow; we always want stuff to happen instantly.

The nija dudes have messed themselves up and have dragged the nija image into to mud, i hope the country\'s image was not tarnished in all this mess.
America is a society where things happen, but one has got to be really patient b4 there\'ll be evidences of good living
 its not like nija where things happen almost immediately (through the back door)

Did I hear you correctly? Did you say that African is still backwards? Stop it oo. Can\'t believe you just said that.
Begin with the determination to suceed and the work is half done already.

Susia, there is no question abt Africa being backwards cos the reality is that we are backwards cos of corruptions and stuff like this. The earlier we come to the reality that doing stuff illegally and the wrong will would hurt us, the better for us.
Nigerian image around the world is a messed up one and its gonna take years of hard work to restore it.
