9 Naija women tell, the best and worst thing about being a Nigerian.


 Worst is that Nigerian men always want to take advantage of you before they can help you. Maybe being a Yoruba lady, don’t even know what’s best.


My best is nothing while my worst is being a Nigerian gangan.


The best thing about being a Nigerian is that I’m associated with a country whose people are known for doggedness and a “never say never” attitude even in the face of adversities. In short, hopeful people.

The worst thing about being a Nigerian is that people face the challenge of tribalism which is worse that racism faced in other countries.


 The best is that I was born to a wonderful and loving family.

Worst is nobody want good things for you here except your creator and your parents. Evil everywhere.


For me, the best thing about being a Nigerian is the doggedness and ruggedness that comes with it. The survivor of the fittest vibes helps to give live to things around us, the music, food and the people are the best hope giver.


 The best thing about being a Nigerian is the survival instinct we possess and the worst is being labelled corrupt.


The worst for me as a Nigerian is graduating after 3 years with no job. I’m yet to find the best thing about being a Nigerian o.


The best about being a Nigerian is the spirit of endurance that we posses. We don’t give up easily. Like the Fela song that says, ‘Suffering and Smiling.’ I love naija.

The worst is corruption, which is not making us move forward as a nation, which also makes other countries reject Nigeria’s visa.


The best about being a Nigerian is that we make the best of every situation. As bad as we have been labelled, we are still role models to some countries while others envy us. A typical Nigerian will never take NO, except the lazy ones.

The worst is our leaders. They never take responsibilities. They are unashamed, irresponsible set of people and they embarrass the citizens with this.

Anyways, I’m still proud of my country.
