If you don't like Naija then please leave our country. You have ur own country so it was ur choice 2 live here. We on the other hand have nowhere to go. Nigeria has a long way to go ,YES. But we will get there

You are not far from the truth cos cant really dispute your claims,,,even court rooms in other parts of the country are not better,,,kudos to her,,its not easy to live and work in maiduguri!

Na lie she lie? We shouldn't be upset..we should be pissed at the common criminals we call leaders. We are so backwards its ridiculous. This is 2013 for pete's sake..we do not have any structure that qualifies to be called a police station..rather we have police posts. Postal system is shit..power is relatively non-existent..universities are on strike..graduates can't find work..and a stupid colored contact wearing aviation minister buys 2 cars for $2.6M dollars..not to mention the insane amount of money being stolen daily. I'll ask a question that most Nigerians probably never ask themselves.."What Happens When We Run Out of Oil"? Its very easy to want to get mad at this very ugly dutch journalist..but then..she's telling the truth. #uglydutchhermaphroditesalsohaveanopinion

This Westerners thrive on giving out negative information about Nigeria,and Africa in general.Madam,if Maidugiri is too hot for your liking,pack up,and get the hell out.

Anonymous said...

She's stupid, since she was enjoying she didn't complain, now that there's Gen problems she wants the world to know. Thunder fire u there, if u get enough u for stay for ur country. Pls travel to other places in the country and see some good things or shut ur mouth and do ur job.

Amaka said...

This chick lives and works in Lagos, not Maidugri. Let's do our research first, she probably did some research before writing those dramatic two liners. But Naija is deeply troubled sha, insulting her and asking her to leave won't solve any problem. Have you heard how much our brothers and sisters living in the UK and the rest of diaspora curse the country and people of wherever the find themselves? But do they leave and move back here? Hardly! Abeg leave dutch babe, if she wan stay for Lagos, make she stay. Enjoyment dey Naija sha

PUTTING UP STUFF LIKE THIS WITH HER PICTURE IS QUITE DANGEROUS, SHE COULD BE ATTACKED BY THE WRONG PEOPLE FOR THE WRONG REASONS LINDA, MAKING HER THE SPOTLIGHT ATM WASN'T YOUR BEST MOVE EVER.

Linda, Iam ur Tanzanian fan, i am very addicted to ur blog, i luv the comments manytimes u'll just find me laughing because of the comments but one thing makes me very sad is about tribalism, u'll find Igbo insulting yoruba and vice versa, i really don't find it cool, we r all one, we need to love each other.
In my country u can't ask someone which tribe r u, even if u meet outside ur country, u just talk and may be ask which city do u come from? But not which tribe r u.
I love ur blog but please try to avoid these types of comments.
Linda i think my comments dey sweet u, u never post them u just swallow withouth even chewing them, post this one bikooo( i love nigerian pidgin, lol) if i make mistake forgive me biko as i use a chinese phone to write this comment.

Nigerians can sometimes be so irritating.....All she said was the truth, period!!! Whether in Abuja, Lag or PH, at some point, we all suffer the same thing. There are places in Lag that have not seen light for over 3 mths...
The least you can do is shut the freaking hell up rather than insult her...Gosh!

Even in Lagos, you walk into a PHCN office to pay your electricity bills and they don't have light there.

This is far too much a complex country, steeped in black mire. The degradation of the north started way back with the collapse of the Justice system, were youth corpers, doctors, innocent men and women were killed in cold blood by marauding 'almajiries' influenced by their twisted envious leaders, in the name of religion, and the docile federal government watching. It only recently got way out of hand with Boko Haram. Dutch lady if you are reading this, GET OUTTA THERE and come join us here in the South to keep praying for the North!

You just heard the truth yet live in denial. Nigeria's biggest problem.
The worst thing you can ever do to yourself is lie to yourself.We are always so happy and accept that what you live as life in 2013 is like still in the stone age. Forget about all the Range rovers in VI that you don't even have the right quality of petrol for it.SAD

For God's sake she is covering the State of Emergency in Maiduguri, Borno State. GSM lines/signals are switched bcos of BH, so u hv to pay N5k to make calls with satellite phones! Bank transactions are difficult to make so it wld be difficult to pay for the Genset to be fixed. Linda pls always paint full pictures, so ppl don't misyarn

I spend notin less dn 12k every wk on fuel(asin every god forsaking wk) I have nt had d nerves to calculate hw much I use monthly cos I will gt mad.

Oyibo..what are you doing in that hell hole called Maiduguri? Better haul ass before Boko turn you to Suya.
These Caucasians thrive on disseminating negative tales of Africa. Why did she not tweet when she went to choice locations in Lagos or Abuja or even Calabar.

Is it just me or what she is saying doesn't make any sense. I've read it over and its either she is speaking dutch or she doesn't know how to write english. In which case, she has no business being a reporter. (Making a call to maiduguri cost 5000N of fuel) *eyebrow raised* Excuse me?

For all those passing negative comments about Nigeria have you paused to even understand what she is saying?

For all those who criticize Nigeria, have you stopped to consider what kind of lowlife reporter this is. Who cannot even construct a simple, sensible sentence... I bet she came here because she is getting paid. What they don't pay people like her enough money in her country? Because if she came her out of humanitarian duties she won't make deragatory comments like that.

All those criticizing the reporter, have you thought of going to Maiduguri one day to see the situation, FYI, GSM no longer works in maiduguri, you have to travel to Yobe to make a phone call and that's what she meant by making a phone all costs NGN5000. The situation is bad, let us accept this and start to fight and work for change in this country.
