There are quite a number of reasons why Nigeria, as a country has attracted the love of many people around the world, for example, her own citizens. From their own lifestyle to that of their sense of humour, and amazing destinations, and to their foods, the people are blessed and their country is a blessed country, distinguished by her extraordinary variety.
The country, Nigeria may not actually be a perfect country, after all, there is no perfect country anywhere in the world perhaps, that is the reason why the people are always feeling compelled to uphold the integrity of their own country.
Nevertheless, there are some nasty things that upset Nigerians easily and in this article, l will be discussing 10 of these things.
Top Nasty Things That Upset Nigerians Easily
There are certain nasty things that upset the people of Nigeria easily, and below are some of those things.
1. When The Rich Say Money Is Not Everything
One of the nasty things that upset Nigerians easily is when those who are rich and wealthy say that money is not everything.
This is falling, why because, according to the Holy writ, money in defense, and money answers all things. The rich, in most cases, will say this in order to dodge the responsibility of using their wealth to be a blessing to those who do not have, and this statement has been considered as a nasty thing that upset Nigerians easily, and they do not want to hear such nasty comment from the well to do Nigerians.
2. When The Rich Spent Huge Amount Of Money In Throwing Parties
Another nasty thing that upset Nigerians easily is when the rich and the well to do Nigerians spent so much money in throwing a party.
Most Nigerians believe that the huge sum of money spent by the rich Nigerians, can be used in sponsoring the less privileged citizens of the country to school, or in another way round, such amount of money could equally be used in sending Nigerians who are from a humble background to learn the trade of their choice.
Therefore, seeing this huge amount of money being wasted in the name of throwing a party at a go by the rich is one nasty thing that upset Nigerians easily.
3. When Political Leaders Cannot Pay Salaries
When politicians who are in the position of authority, for example, Nigerian state governors, cannot pay workers’ salaries.
The country, Nigeria is blessed with numerous resources, and every state of the federation is endowed with natural resources, which if exploited, will not only contribute to the development of the country’s economy, but the individual state economy, and will be enough to pay worker’s salaries. But in most states in Nigeria, the reverse is the case, and one wonders what Nigerian political leaders are doing in the seat of power.
4. When A Hungry Member Approach A Pastor For Help And He Refer Him Fasting And Prayer
This is yet another nasty thing that upset Nigerians easily. A churchgoer, who is a member of a particular church, will approach a pastor, his pastor at that, for physical assistance, maybe for money or maybe for food or any other need the member may have, instead of the pastor meet the need of his church member, he will rather ask the church member to undergo fasting and prayers for God to intervene.
This is unfortunate! The pastor has every obligation to help his member with physical needs, as well as, spiritual needs too if he is in the position of helping.
5. When Looters Prescribed The Way Forward For Nigeria
This is another nasty thing that upset Nigerians easily. You will see Nigerian politicians, who have ruled the country, and also served the country in different capacity, yet during their tenure in office, instead of Nigeria developing economically, socially and politically, the country will be ranked as the most corrupt and poorest nation, coming to advise on how Nigeria can move forward.
These same people are the people who have looted Nigeria in different occasions, while in government, and they are the same politicians, prescribing ways to move Nigeria forward.
6. When Companies Demand Years Of Experience From fresh Graduates who are looking for jobs
When companies or organizations advertising job vacancies insist that those seeking job placement should show a proof of years of experience in the job before they can be employed is yet another nasty thing that upset Nigerians easily.
Why asking for years of experience before you employ job seekers? And if you refuse to give them the job in the first place, where then do you expect them to gain the years of experience you are insisting of?
Sometimes, one wonders at this requirement by most companies and organizations operating in Nigeria. It is a nasty thing that upset Nigerians easily
7. When Traders Keep Hiking Products Prices In The Country
When traders and business people who are doing business in Nigeria are fond of hiking the prices of their services and products arbitrarily is one nasty thing that also upset Nigerians easily.
The same people who are glamouring for favourable cost of living in the country are the same people trying to make things harder, making the dream of achieving a better and favorite cost of living county impossible.
When one is selfish, self-Center, who does not care for the interest of others or the nation in which he lives, indulging in the practice of hiking the prices of products and services in the market place will not mean anything to him, and this upset Nigerians easily.
8. When Graduates Are Underpaid
Another nasty thing that l have observed that upset Nigerians easily, is when graduates in the place of work are underpaid.
How would you expect someone who have spent so many years studying in the institute of higher learning, graduated successfully to be collecting a peanut monthly for a reward of the work he has done for his employer.
Some employers will want their employees to always dress well to work, they will expect their employees to look good, and be in office before 7am, as well as, do all the work in the office, but goes home at the end of the month with a peanut.
9. When Phone / Internet Network Providers Keep Surcharging Nigerians Unnecessarily
When cell phone network providers indulge in taking one’s hard-earned money from cell phone unnecessarily is another nasty thing that has upset Nigerians easily.
I do not know whether every other country globally does have this kind of experience as experienced by Nigerians.
Someone will recharge or load his cell phone with credit without even making a single call, and will later discover that the money he loaded a few minutes ago has been taken away by the same network providers.
10. When NEPA or Whatever they call themselves Refuses To Bring Light but demands for Bill:
Although one experience in Nigeria is that, power or electricity supply in the country is unsteady however, most time, the NEPA will not even bring light at all. So when NEPA refused to bring light, the people will be pissed off.
Therefore, if you ask me, l will tell you that, this is one of the things known as nasty that upset Nigerians easily. The worst of it all is that, even when NEPA did not bring light, they will, at the end of the month, come with estimated bill and collect so much money from the members of the public.
Although Nigeria is one country that is so loved by so many people across the world, some of her challenges notwithstanding. That out of the way, there are some nasty things that upset Nigerians easily which leave discussed fully in this article.
