It is funny that a government that does not adequately attend to the ordinary needs of its citizens…is pretending to organize people whose presence in America, Europe and elsewhere is by and large a result of the failure of the Nigeria state.

I believe the boy must have been happy to be in London. He was maybe too young to hate Nigeria, but young enough to know the deliciousness and freedom of a new experience…

In Nigeria, you don't have to call ahead to tell a friend or neighbor you're coming over. You just knock on the door and they let you in.
