‘Intelligent Nigerians should leave the country if they want to be successful’ – American man advices, Nigerians react (Photos)
An American in a trending video clip has admonished intelligent Nigerians to leave the country if they want to become successful.
According to the American man who looks his 50’s, it is hard to make it in Nigeria without offering or accepting brown envelopes.
” Nigeria again! every thing that i have ever read about Nigeria, if you don’t open your pocket and pay off everyone from the lowest to the highest you don’t get anything done. And i have read Nigerian writers and they all seem to say that. Also now in Nigeria if you are an intelligent Nigerian you need to get out of that country if you wanna get ahead because the powers that be there wanna hold everybody down especially women and especially intelligent people” he said during an interview with a Nigerian journalist who also agreed that he is not totally wrong.
The video which was made viral by one Leslie Atake has received widespread reactions from Nigerians who think truer words have never been spoken, even though they are demeaning, they are blunt and unequivocal.
“ Continue to live in denial knowing this man is 100% right. This country is a dream killer, a country that can’t boast of constant electricity supply, good medical, pipe borne water and good road, a country you need know someone to be someone, a country a roadside plumber will come and suddenly he will be given armed escort as an expatriate, a country where some people are above the law, a country where the intelligent people are suppressed, a country where SARS will beat you blue black for being fresh. Our leaders have been failing us since 1960″. Rahzcarter said reacting to the clip.
We however hope and pray things get better in Nigeria, as not everyone can afford leaving the country.
