*1. The moment I knew Nigeria was in trouble was when someone stole his neighbor’s white goat and dyed it black, only for the neighbor to say he recognized the goat by it’s smile.*

😀

*2. The best strategy to win arguements is to have serious mouth odour, they will just be nodding their head in agreement.*

😂

*3. I don’t like people who can’t let go of the past – especially people I owe money.*

😀

*4. Hmmm ….. When NEPA takes light, a true Nigerian will stand up and check outside, to make sure their neighbors don’t have light too! And you believe, you will make Heaven abi.*

☺

*5. You will buy sachet water and finish it at once. But when you buy bottle water, you will be opening and closing it as if it’s doctor’s prescription.*

😀

*6. At home you can’t sleep without switching off ‘ur small radio but you can sleep in Church with eight speakers blasting in ‘ur ear … it is called Demonic soft work.*

☺

*7. In Africa once your phone rings in the church or mosque, everybody will start looking at you as if Satan is the one calling.* 😄😄😄😄

*8. I still don’t understand how Nigerian Cockroaches survive inside microwave, gas cooker oven, etc. You will be warming food and you will see them walking inside like Shedrack, Meshack & Abednego.* 🙄🙄 *Maybe they also serve a Mighty God.*

*Anybody with an explanation?*😜😜😜

*Please, put a smile 😊🙂😉🙂😘 on someone’s face to calm down tension caused by Political Jobbers and other stress.* 😁😁
