Dear South Africans, When you throw jabs at Nigerians, talking about “if your country was so good why would you migrate to S.A?” remember this:

The reason South Africa is where it is today is not because of black South Africa. Most Black South Africans are angry, unforgiving
frustrated and mentally repressed people. Nigeria has come this far by ourselves, imagine if we had a functioning government? But you? You would turn on yourselves if all foreigners left your country because that anger that’s simmering deep inside you needs to be let out.
God has blessed Nigerians with one great thing, Joy in our hearts. Maybe because we didn’t go through half of what you did so there’s no foundation for a simmering volcano covered by a mountain, splashing lava where it can because there’s no space to erupt.

As a postgraduate student of a Marxian Scholar at the @HQ_NDA - Moses E. I. Tedheke Ph.D; Political Economy of African Security is a Course I offer in my Second Semester of Course work.

I’m exposed to the place of economic relations on Africa’s weak defense and security and above all Africa’s economic crises and continental security.

To think that some South Africans claim that other Africans are competing with them on dwindling cum scarce resources is sheer ignorance. I have not verified this claim but it’s necessary we enlighten ourselves and not entertain such thoughts perhaps they exist
