Popular social media activist, Segun Awosanya commonly referred to as Segalink has declared that failure has been imbibed as a culture in Nigeria in a new post on Twitter.
Recall, singer, Simi took to her Twitter handle to talk about how Nigerians can fix the country and fix the image of the country which has been destroyed.
The singer pointed out that every negative going on in Nigeria can be attributed to the handiwork of Nigerians.
She also expressed that the countries Nigerians are running to did not become so overnight but through hard work which led to development.
We need to fix our country, fix our image – because the only reason the Nigerian passport is going through so much scrutiny is because of what they assume we’re ALL capable of. The more desperate we are to go there, the less likely they want us there and vice versa! Buhari
We’re the problem. We’re also the solution. We have highly underestimated the power and impact of a good image – and it’s catching up to us. Plus the change is not just the government, it’s all of us. We’re getting left behind.
Every dayy we’re clapping for countries with passports that have easy access to numerous countries. WHY THE HECK DO YOU THINK THAT IS They earned it. They earned it! The problem is not the passport, it is us my brethren.
Over 30 years ago, my mother went to London and got visa on arrival. The same green passport. We gotta start telling ourselves the truth. If we don’t fix up, how we gon get better treatment??
Previously, the privileged were quiet because they could somehow find a way. Now, everybody is affected! I feel like if we let it go too bad, it’ll take even longer to repair. I’m tired. Even talk is too much – we need people with good hearts that really can be the change.
Segalink in his new tweet replied the Nigerian Singer, Simi’s previous Tweet, who asked people to ask her intelligent question.
In your country, the youth have been idiot-shamed simply because they were deemed to have failed certain examinations. Isn’t examination a test of the competence of the teacher than that of the student in sane climes? Especially in a country where failure is a culture.
