Why Are Nigerians Selfish?

http://www./Forum/Discussion.aspx?NewsId=897

Nigerians, especially Nigerian men.When will they stop being selfish cheats,liars, and scammers? Not sounding biased Nigerians are the most in numbers in Africa, and offcourse there are many good Nigerians. Many Nigerians are also highly educated, honest, and well travelled. However i am yet to meet the good ones. I personally have interacted with Nigerians in several countries including living with some as room mates when i was a student, but all the ones i met were the wrong type of Nigerians. Nigerian's through their scams really ruin the good name of Africa. Who are the good Nigerians? Where can i find good Nigerians? I am gonna start a Good Nigerians thread to balance this discussion out.

You may be right in your own perspective but that doesn't mean you are right! While I agree with much of what you have said, perhaps much of what you typed (Nos 1-3) is typical of the "English" mind you I said "English" and not "British". Yes No.4 seems obvious: Nigerians 'seems' to despise the truth at their own peril.

Still your afore submission in my own opinion is not enough to sum up a population of 150million and still counting as being selfish as the original poster opined.

Why would someone ask such a question if you know Nigerians then you will know that no1 they do not like to be challenged no 2 They would like you to believe that they are good all good no3 that they are no1 in the world and no4 They do not like hearing the truth cause they never want to change for bettermen

I think it is time you check yourself pal.

If all you attract to yourself are bad, scammers and liars, then, maybe you could be one, cos likes attracts.

BTW, in every 12, there is a judas, and nigeria is 150 Million people, so divide 150M by 12 and see what you get.

There are good and bad in every nation, i have seen a lot of ghanians that are crooks.

every insurance fraud that has been investigated are linked to Ghanians, so my guy, stop pointing such fingers and look for the good nigerians.

It is called stereotyping! And it is a form on which majority of us humans base our judgements, ElRazur inclusive!

I do think stereotyping, for the sake of discussions is fair game!

@Topic

I am Nigerian and I think I've met/seen more of the wrong type of Nigerians than the good ones. The bad does outweigh the good, especially offshore. But still there are a lot of great Nigerians

Sometimes,  a dose of the truth pill does taste bitter.

I totally agree with you Richy, what amazes me the most is that Nigeria is now one of the most religious countries in west Africa.

I agree with the poster. Some Nigerians are very good, but 99% of Nigerians in government are worse than the devil.

If I had the power (where all those juju believers?) I will make a list of all the corrupt Nigerians in power, publish the list, give them 24 hours to change their ways and vaporize every one of them that refuse to change!

If only pigs could fly!

Ghanians are our brothers we are like siamese twins, there is no reason for any nigerian to get irate over what a brother say, it is only one man's opinion, and I was told by someone long time ago that opinions is like an Bottom-hole everybody has got one.

Muslims are terrorist.

Ghanaians are dark black and have a funny shaped-head.

Hausa are nothing but cattle rearers.

@poster,

you meet bad nigerians mainly because u are a very bad person.

human beings are naturally selfish and it is not about nigerians so u can bear with us.

if u are looking for good nigerians like me, u better get urself equiped with goodness.

ur other worries can wait till we meet.

Are u really a Ghanaian. I dont think you are educated at all. The fact that you have met bad people does not necessarily make everyone bad. For your information i have met quite of number of dodgy Ghanaians but i will not stereotype as i believe every one should be given a chance to prove themself.
