    Wow! Can't believe Nig is after the likes of France, SA, Italy....

    I'm sorry to say but the problems we face in Nigeria are those caused by the people for the people.
    In other places, most of the issues are those that occur naturally and they can't really help it, but for us, they are the ones that we sit and master mind ourselves.
    God help us!!!

    i am surprised nija is not number 1..Nija women in nija are so resourceful and hardworking, they work long tedious hours in their jobs and businesses, and when they get home have to cook food for oga pass the food to him,while he is chilling with a cold beer and watching TV, and do the bedmatics in the bedroom....Nigerian women here in the US are under so much pressure it is literally unimaginable..they work so so so hard!!!..majority of them are nurses and nurses assistants...working 12-18 hr shifts to maintain a stable lifestyle for their families...in fact nija men in the us tell their wives to study nursing b4 coming to the US....Many of them are truly extremely stressed, and look much much older than their ages, due to the heavy burden and undue pressure some husbands put on their wives..truly pathetic!!!

    See me see trouble why wont they be stressed. The real struggle for survival falls on their head too na. Worse they are the ones the kids turn to when dad and his mates have taken out time to go peppersouping na.

    plus, I had a chevron worker telling me cvategorically that is he looking for a woman who can look after him and allow him enjoy his millions.

    Then the domestic violence nko?

    i h\ve blogged and blogged on this lkike a mad woman bcos its happening to my friend.







    All thrse blogs are coded signs to my friend. HABA, She has a good job but a jobless handsome husband who beats her regulalrly. She kept it to herslelf until he beat her right there at her office on valentines day. At he young age she has a heart condition from worrying asbout what to or what not to expect from home.

    NO MAN OR WOMAN IS A SAINT WITH THIER TONGUE but some of these modern men they marry in the name of want to be mrs xyz are pure beasts. What touches me the most? After beating her like an animal, he takes her money and go have fun or uses her dstv to watch sports or drives her car out while she uses transport to the hospital, gets on admission, treats herself, pay and then come back to that tensed house .

    Plus there doesnt seem a neutral place to go for battered women in Nigeria, most families will want to have the prestige of married children so no succour anywhere And most churches just preach submission without ading that the husband should mlove his wife like Chist loved the church!!! Submit as if the woman is a ram and not a person wwith feelings.

    Even as they juggle businesses with raising a home, No woman is a superwoman.No wonder HPB is the highest killer of women, suffering bin silence. Upon it all I know most women prefer to be in a violent home than bcos in Nigeria being single or single mother is equivalent to being the damned.http://efemenaoreoluwa.blogspot.com/2011/07/now-i-see-it-is-sin-damnable-to-hell-to_13.html hissss

    (sorry for the long note jare, i dont want my very stressed friend to die bcos she wants to be mrs john doe)

    This is simply a confused ass survey. Because as far as I'm concerned, the united states should be no one on this list.
