We have reached a stage in Nigeria, where it is normal to be bad, where it is expected to be unproductive, where it is abnormal to be normal and wrong to be straight forward. If you held public office and retired to your village, with nothing squandered to show, you most likely would be chased away and derided by your people. You score no point for having been an honest citizen of Nigeria and a diligent representative of the state.
Your achievement is measured by how much you stole!

In Nigeria, bad thing simply are normal, necessary, probably even needed. In Nigeria, bad is good, even is better and demonic the best.

Bribery is normal in this country, it is anticipated, it is expected, it is given particularly in government and largely in the private sector. Most people are tipped, bribed, kicked back, or settled! Or nowadays are blessed. Our love for material things of any kind, even when they are useless to us, makes us so amenable to compromise. Our greed and desire for things we have not worked for, not earned, make us all so susceptible to wickedness. In Nigeria, to be fair is to be foolish, to be straight is to be late, to be upstanding is to be down trodden, to be honest is to be rejected.

Bad driving is normal in Nigeria; it is expected for people not to obey traffic signals, disregard the lights and where possible ignore the policeman or traffic warden. It is not normal to give way to any traffic whether it is on your left or not and quite normal to drive with your horns blaring. It is normal to drive an unserviceable car, so it can break down on the bridge and cause traffic jams, normal to fight your fellow Nigerian after a minor accident.

It is normal to stop in the middle of the road to greet a friend and quite normal to block the road so no other car can pass. Indeed, it is quite normal to be most destructive. It is normal not to have constant electricity and it is expected that ones owns a generator. In fact, it is a great source of embarrassment not to own one. It is quite normal for there to be no diesel, no petrol and no kerosene. It is usual for the generator to break down and be unserviceable, and usual for there to be no parts for repairs.

Pot holes and bad roads are normal in Nigeria, very normal. Thank God for Fashola in Lagos who with his magic wand or ‘fly whisk’ has ‘wished’ quite a number away but even then a lot of rough surfaces remain.

It is quite normal for most projects to be left uncompleted for there to be so many abandoned projects for the government to waste a lot of money on. A lot of all that wastage is a lot of normal expectation. It is normal not to find any staff from messenger to minister on seat, normal not to expect any normal value for a normal day’s work, normal not to get anything done, normal to expect the normal bureaucracy and the usual delays. Normal to be unable to book an appointment or keep one, normal not to see the normal oga.

Corrupt officials are normal in Nigeria; it is normal for most people including directors, ministers and important people in government and society to live beyond their visible means. It is normal for them not to be probed, for them not to explain and quite normal for them to wantonly display this ill-gotten wealth. Not only normal, it is expected, demanded, anticipated, provided for, encouraged, and cheered!

It is normal for a Nigerian to be a Nigerian and that means that he is rude, arrogant, averagely dishonest, corrupt, aggressive, unfair, unfaithful, flagrant, irritable, excitable, averagely loud, and unstraight forward. It is normal for most Nigerians to be unfaithful especially to their wives and now more recently to their husbands. It is normal to go to church, attend the mosque and also consult a witch doctor or carry some witch craft marks or wear talisman.

Settlement is normal in Nigeria, in fact it is applauded and the beneficiaries are envied. It is not normal to hold your head up high in defense of your honesty in an environment where even your wife will say – ‘Na you alone be honest man, Na honesty we go shop?’

Yes indeed, it is normal for everyone to want to chop, chop, and chop until there is nothing left to chop. It is normal to lie, tell a fib, be dishonest, unusual to be straightforward, genuine, and dependable. It is normal not to give value for money, normal to compromise, and reduce your erstwhile abnormal standards.

It is normal to be a 419 person. Normal to make money illicitly through armed robbery, drug deals, uncompleted contracts and the like. It is not normal to have a good police force in Nigeria, simply just not normal to have a properly functioning hospital. It is not normal for the Airport to be well maintained, air-conditioned, and efficient.

What then is abnormal in Nigeria? Everything else which is good, which is proper, which should be applauded, which should be encouraged, which should be normal.

Any wonder therefore that we found ourselves in such a mess over the years? God have mercy. Nigeria is an amazing country where aberrations, abnormality and the usual reign supreme Where there is confusion and disruption, the devil thrives. Who does not therefore know, who normally rules Nigeria? Make God take charge of our affairs.

Who are you? You have a good Article but i couldnt read them all to futher some comment either against it or not against it but all that you said, are they the reasons why things been abnormal are normal in Nigeria?
<A>c
well, am just trying to show how far we have all went wrong in this country. the reason why we are not growing in this country can easily be traced to all what i mention in my article. not until we learn to live right with integrity, i dont see how we can grow. simply.
Please let us focus on what is on ground now, the crisis of security and the fight against inurgency and terrorism, also the deadly latest news Ebola virus in our land and stop all these confussion broadcasting what will not solve the problem this country is facing at hand now. Lets look forward to amend and create a soluction on our soil and not to add to the problem. Good!
<A>c
you are welcome. i really agreed with you. not to discuss the problem, but the solution. together we can do it. once again, thank you for your enlightenment.
Good, but enormous article; please and break it down at another time; people would realy love it but its too long, As Austine said he could not read eveything so l didnt read everything; l'm in support of a fact derived from the article; "Its normal to be abnormal".
To add this, its normal to be a liar in Nigeria and still claim to be good.
Lying, especially is normal in Nigeria and this is a cancerworm eating up our country Nigeria.

That article is good nd marvelous in my...l agree that those things you mentioned are quite abnormal while people take it as a normal thing...but what are we doing to the case,youth? Re the normal nd upright in mind,spirit and body still trying to play abnormality when the abnormals take it to b normal? Lets release ourselves from the cage of ignorance and purpose blindness and help this dying country please!
Nigerians talks too much
<A>c
We make too much demostrations without action.
<A>c
@Austine, the fact is that, Nigerians are afraid of the unknown and entertain fear where not necessary.
People of timbre & calibre, who could have taken powerful actions that can transform country are selfish and would rather face their laurels, build great edifices, build up fast bank accounts for themselves, but have forgotten their primary assigment of rescuing the perishing.
If 50% of our leaders in this country can dare to be Awolowo, Gani Fawehinmi Or like Mandela, this country would have been a paradise; but selfishness is the order of the day......

Good reply from you Sir Sam. As you said Nigerians are afraid of the unknown, is it why Nigerians do not take things serious before it gone out of hands. Take a look a this bokoharam crisis we are facing, when it first started the Nigeria Govt did not take this matter serious instead they were going about attending meeting in the platform of demostration and not in the platform of action, and now look at the result the Country is facing, for example; The two times Nyanya Abuja bomb blast, the kidnapped of over 200 girls from the borno (Chibok) Secondary school. The nations are now waking up when it has result to be a global issue. What about Ebola? The Nigerians goverment are so blind and inactive to implement neccessary action that are supposed to be implemented. At first in 1976 Ebola was discovered, why didnt our goverment rose up and be cautious not just in security issues but in health issues, recently it became worst in Liberia, Kenya, Democratic Republic of Congo < DRC> etc and some parts in West Africa. The Nigeria goverment were so sloggish to act furiously against this deadly Ebola virus, why didnt the goverment send aid and medical security expert to examine and check everyone coming into the country before been allowed because if so Patrick Saysor from liberia who had been caught at the Murutala International Airport Lagos state and he who had been sent back orderly but the goverment are too blind to see and lazy to act early and that was why the Ebola virus find its way to our motherland Nigeria to kill us before our time but may God forbid. The hospital at lagos state ''Teaching hospital'' were trying to act in professionalism not knowing one of the team Nurse was going to die, now that this Virus is in Nigeria the goverment are now checking and examing travellers migrating into the country, or will that be the soluction in tackling Ebola. Just as i commented earlier Nigerians love too much demonstration and so sloggish as a pregnant woman in terms of action. May God save the federal republic of Nigeria.
<A>c
Amen!!!
I remember the song composed for our motherland; its a praying song for this country, Nigeria:-
"Nigeria shall be saved;
The Country shall be saved;
By the power of my Saviour;
Nigeria shall be saved"
Tonic Solfa:-
mmmrdm;
mmmrdr;
mmssffdr;
mmfrtd.
We need to pray for the salvation of our country, Nigeria.

Prayer is the greatest weapon we can use to fight and defend ourselves and our country!!!
<A>c
Yes, prayer is all we need now.
We've been shouting and screaming under these task masters, who we call our leaders; pity enough to understand that they are rulers, not leaders: a leader listens and takes advices from the people he's leading, but a ruler never cares for that.
Our rulers are not just rulers: they are wicked rulers, who rule us with rods of iron.
For how long shall we be in this pitiable condition in Nigeria?
Small, small countries around us are making rapid progress, but why are we experiencing retrogression?
Instead of amelioration, its deterioration.
WE NEED GREAT REVOLUTION IN NIGERIA !
