One thing that will continue to amuse me is the way Nigerians always make a comedy out of everything (good or bad), especially bad. The sense of humour is something you can’t but notice and I’m in love with that.
When I think of how Nigerians have handled things like elections, different presidents and governors, removal of oil subsidy, oga at the top, boko haram and ASUU strike in the past, smiles form on my lips. When I remember/hear songs that have been composed by Nigerians and see pictures like the ones here which are products of ‘inspiration’ from situations in the country, I can’t help but laugh.
Though I hate the fact that things are not going the way they should, I think I like the way Nigerians are not taking it too hard on themselves. Sounds funny, but it’s true.
Even though most of these issues are things that need serious attention and are not funny at all, we still find a way of looking at the bright side by finding ways to console ourselves. I’ve come to realise there’s a bit of comedy in an average Nigerian.
I hope someday, everybody will be able to have a good laugh in this country. And we will no longer say “e go better” because by then, it would have been better. Remember it begins with the man in the mirror…you and I.
