Nigerians were once believed to be happy people, suffering and smiling despite successive years of misrule and government ineptitude.
The resilience of the average Nigerian is frightening. In these parts, success is achieved despite a goverment and a climate which seems diametrically opposed to the notion of anyone who’s not in government making something of themselves.
One year after an unprecedented victory for the opposition party at the Presidential elections, Nigerians are learning that a promise of change might not necessarily be positive. With a biting fuel scarcity which has persisted for weeks and abysmal power supply, the famed resilience seems to be crumbling.
Everyone is tired of Nigeria…
But my people, remember It’s darkest just before dawn, lets stay hopeful.

You know it’s a problem when almost every tweet you scroll through on your TL says “tired of Nigeria” @NGRPresident what’s going on?
