By merely living in Nigeria, you stand a great risk of losing your humanity; losing your sense of right and wrong. Losing your sense of justice. Becoming very tolerant of incompetence.

"Nigeria" is a dehumanizing experience.
Shiite murders, IPOB massacre, Rann bombing, Benue killings, #Dapchi.

This nation simply "shrugs them off", waiting for the next abomination.

"Nigeria" dulls your sense of outrage; you are perpertually in "survival mode". You lose your vision, you live like a rat, a hustler.
You lose your sense of justice.

You contributed money to "buy a new transformer", but you have no electricity. You pay taxes to an opaque state government, but you are ready to vote them again - because "they are working". They are building flyovers.
Your toll gate fees and land use charges were increased.

You did nothing, said nothing. You said the state government is "working".

Yet, with all the money the "working state government" makes, you wouldn't send your kids to a state run school.
You have a problem with your neighbour. You have friends in SARS, you pay them off to "teach him a lesson". "Justice" be damned.

Your neighbour has friends in the Army. He brings them to settle the squabble.

You'll never understand what "justice" is.
For all their loudness, Nigerians are docile.

Nigerians are "aggressive", but they have resigned themselves to a future of mediocrity.

Hustlers do not dream, they hustle.
