This is a delicious food made with fresh tomatoes. Although the food didn't originate in Nigeria, but Nigerians has taken it to another stage. We have discovered different ways and methods of preparing the food that makes it more unique. Some add vegetables to it while others enjoys it with chicken. Nigerians are great food lovers and we innovate different methods of making our jollof rice look and taste more better. Abeg bring me jollof rice.
EATING CHICKEN TO THE BONE
Hahaha, this one might sound funny but just check it you will see it's true. Just like I said we are good food lovers, also we are a kind of stingy, because of it, we don't allow any piece of chicken left, we eat all of its flesh, we open the marrow and suck it out, we devour the flesh even up to the point that nothing remains. Sometimes we pretend, when we go outside we eat it like Americans but right in our home we destroy the meat.
Nigerians doesn't believe that they are going to fail in everything we do. You will see any Nigeria looking for a work, when he submits his CV, he begins to celebrate that he has already been employed. Even in our government, during election everyone believe they are going to win despite what. In our schools we believe we are going to pass our exams even though we ain't prepared. Because of this we are highly religious believing that God can do everything, even the pegans do trust their gods in everything.
Nigerians seems to have a very great sense of proverb. We have proverbs in absolutely everything we say. When we are advising others, when talking to a crowd and even while joking we put proverbs in it. We produce more and more proverbs everyday and use it whenever we want to talk. Elders in the community are known as men of wisdom because 80% of their words are proverbs.
Some of the proverbs include

MAKING MORE OUT OF TRAFFIC JAMS (GO SLOW)
Traffic jam is a stage when cars move in a very slow pace because of either a blockage in a road or improper control of the traffic. In Nigeria hawkers make more use of this opportunity by bringing their wares to sell to people inside the cars, they sell pure water, soft drinks, Bananas, oranges and so many things. In other countries you won't see it happening that way even if it happens but not up to the extent of Nigerians. Hawkers knows the exact place where traffic jams usually happens, they station themselves there and sell their wares and make lots of money before the day runs out.
