NIGERIA , an African country on the Gulf of Guinea, has many natural landmarks and wildlife reserves. Protected areas such as Cross River National Park and Yankari National Park have waterfalls, dense rainforest, savanna and rare primate habitats. One of the most recognizable sites is Zuma Rock, a 725m-tall monolith outside the capital of Abuja that’s pictured on the national currency.

Reasons why We Nigerians and Our Country(Nigeria) can never change

* The lecturer who insists on sex for a young girl to pass is complaining about the rot in Nigeria.

* The pastor who pays his driver 20k in Lagos or PH while his own son schools in the US is complaining about the hopelessness in Nigeria.

* The trader who removes 2 bowls of rice from the bag, rebags and sells as a 'full' bag is complaining about the wickedness in Nigeria.

* The civil servant who comes to work once a week and shows up end of month to receive alert is complaining about politicians who do nothing.

* The student who spends the weekend partying only to start posting Instagram pictures on Monday is complaining that Nigeria is stealing his/her dreams.

* The motor owner who can't join a simple queue but keeps darting in and out of traffic to shunt is complaining about disorderliness in Nigeria.

* Doctors in public and teaching hospitals on government payroll who abandon patients on the floor but are thriving in their private hospitals are complaining that Nigeria is hopeless. 

* Until we realize that the value of Nigeria today is the average of our own individual values, we will keep fooling ourselves.

* We are all architect of our economic development woes. Stop the blame game. Our attitudes and unpatriotic behaviour should stop.
