“The Chinese have learned a very bad thing from Nigerians” – By Onyeoma C-y Odogwudozilla Ezigbommadu

The Chinese have learned a very bad thing from Nigerians and that’s creeping into every available space on the planet, and asserting themselves there. They are everywhere, and completely eliminated Nigerian dominance as the diversity skin of choice around the world.

However, Wherever they congregate, they breathe, eat and sleep Chinese. APC could fulfill one campaign promise and you still cannot catch a group of Chinese conversing in English. It doesn’t matter if they’re really Chinese or Korean (for some reason, Japanese are scarce), they seem to have this pidgin Chinko language they all understand, and speak. And when, in class for example, they are forced to speak English, there is a deliberate effort to let you know they would rather be speaking to you in another language, what with their laboured English. Yet, they’re all smart.
Which is why e dey vex me when I meet a Nigerian and he/she goes all Kemi Adeosun Britico on me. I’m like, bros calm down, na me and you follow dey shout up NEPA the other day. Wetin be this one nau? Whossai! I could as well be trying to convince SARS that that young man with a laptop is not a yahoo boy.
The men are easier sef. With enough goading, they come to their senses and soon the signature boisterous Nigerian camaraderie sets in among a group of Nigerian men. The women though, ha! Those ones mutated to Europeans the moment they passed the Murtala Muhammad Airport Immigration scanner. Those ones are more British than Queen Eliza. Stay with them long enough and you begin to believe intelligence is probably correlated positively with the ability to chirp the nasal version of English in these parts, despite all the Chinese and Indian evidence to the contrary.
This is a problem.
I think, to a large extent, people who develop their countries have learned to take what is good from a foreign culture and jettison all those that threaten to make them lose their identities. There is this consciousness among the Chinese, the Indians, the Americans and of course the British, etc. A Mexican I met here is unapologetically Mexican both in word and deed. So was a white South African.
All Nigerian women I met here are unapologetically Scottish, including the one that came in just a day before I did (wtf!). What’s going on?
I don’t blame them too much sha. Shey Chinese dey teach their children in Chinese, while here we dey carry English for head yet we cannot go and school in the UK without them opening office ontop our heads in the name of English proficiency test. Na we dey do ourselves sha.
When do we start inventing our own homegrown philosophical background for development? That question can only be attempted by someone who brings more than just body language to the table.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
@MBuhari
