From The Lunatic’s Pad: The Stupid, Infantile Contraption Called Nigeria

By Ikenga Chronicles October 5, 2016

Hello Nigeria!

I almost forgot it was your birthday last weekend. You’re a great guy. Yes Nigeria, you are. It isn’t easy being the guy whose today perpetually seems to be worse than his yesterday. People won’t praise you for this. They won’t recognize that going against the tide isn’t an easy thing. That keeping a steady hold on running backwards is no mean feat. Nigeria, I hail you.

Humans see the single view alot. That’s sad. If people are being congratulated for getting older everyday in terms of democratic principles, shouldn’t we be applauded too for remaining nascent for this long? It’s a record too, is it not?

Nigeria, you’re a great guy, with great citizens. Your children are the only ones who will stay up all night listening to, and spend the next week discussing the electoral debates of another country, but when it comes to yours, the regular is, ‘is it debate that will make our country better’?
Hello Naija, you’re an amazing fellow.
