Nigerians are generally (BUT a few) suffering from the Get-rich-QUICK syndrome.
Am going to make this as brief as I possibly can, so you could read.
why is it always Nigerians that get caught on drugs trafficking in, and fraudulent activities around the world, and not some other Africa countries. Isn't it glaring to us that Nigerians are given to making quick money.
That's why ponzi schemes have always thrived in Nigeria, so this get-rich-quick syndrome is not peculiar to the youths alone, it's in our sub-concious as Nigerians, (not entirely generic) to find a shortcut to everything, one of the reasons we not ardent readers, hence excel in academic malpractice, and of course ruin our future by aiding election malpractices and turn to find who to blame for our shortfalls.
Now the economy is comatose, some will have the temerity to say we are looking for ways of making a decent living, then of course i'll ask, during the oil boom and supposed economic progression, were we void of fraudulence and depravity, or that's even when it all started?
So the next time you want to tell that young boy to take it one step at a time, ask yourself, if you are taking it one step at a time.
Hope that was cursory enough.
