    It was very ” bleh” except the Film maker guy, he was very articulate and made a whole lot of sense. I’m sorry but I didn’t invest 20 mins of my time to watch people laughing uncontrollably and shouting into the camera. …. i like to be positive but sometimes it does better good to say it like it is

    I’m not a supporter of any party in Nigeria but as a Nigerian I believe that this current administration though maybe slow and may have made some mistakes but are on the right path. And also this current economic situation has been pulling up since way back. A simple example is just like saying a man earning about 700k per month suddenly had his salary cut to a 100k, how does one expect him to r main the same. he has to go look for another high earn job or find another thing doing to support his family. That’s what I think is going on in Nigeria with the oil which is an external factor. Our economy is diversified though not enough but 90% of foreign exchange is from oil. So things will surely get worse. It’s just common sense!!!!

    Na wa ohhh, everyone just wants everyone to be sad. Lol I enjoyed it as a happy person that I am, sheesh. I think it is interesting to get the views of some people that have experienced a working system. This year was not a good year of Being Nigerian in Nigeria, everything is just so hard. I wonder how people will afford things come this Christmas. There was apt point about us not having a government that listensssss! Like it’s like they don’t WANT TO understand how much people are suffering!!!! People are! The ones that can travel have left for a while, but what about the ones that can’t, SMH.

    Give me 1 reason to be proud of being Nigerian. I am proud of the Nigerian in me but I’m not proud of being a Nigerian.
