Please, ex-squeeze me! I spent my 38 years in Nigeria, I was not born with a silver spoon, nor did I marry a Danjuma! I am still very much in contact with my family back home. We discuss everything ranging from food to the recent happenings in 9ja, so I know whats-up!
Do you guys think people don't hunger in diaspora? Or there are no poor people? Or no deprivations? or beggars? Many people are on food stamp! Organic food is expensive to buy! Only genetically modified food are very affordable, which researchers say are harmful to us! But wetin man go do? We must chop!
SO! Where am I going with this? Well, it is to tell my fellow Nigerians that even in overseas, diasporas are managing like you! See, ehen, forget all those beautiful pictures unah dey look for social platforms o, until you come to live here, you will join in counting the nickels before you purchase anything! PRUDENCE is the key! STOP frivolities! Separate your NEEDS from your wants! This is a time to set BOUNDARIES and PRIORITIES! This is not the time for 'I- just-come-visit-you'! SENTIMENTS DOES NOT PAY BILLS OR PUT FOOD ON THE TABLE! Find very simple meals to prepare! Find substitutes, like okro for draw soup instead of obognon. Cut your meat or chicken or fish into smaller bits, dem no dey chop meat belleful abeg! FOOD should be the most important thing in your home than clothes or jewelries aso-ebi or owambe!
HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY TO Y'ALL!
GOD BLESS NIGERIA!
