We look to our Nigerian brothers for some things, but there are more things that they have they Ghanaians would rather never get.
Nigeria is a country of superlatives, no doubt. Being Africa’s largest population, it is only natural that many things to do with Nigeria would be on a relatively larger scale since the large population can be used to an advantage.
But here are the things Nigerians can "BOAST" of, and keep all to themselves because Ghanaians don't want none of that.
1. Nigerian Jollof
"Ain't nobody gat time for dat!!!"
Buhari was cool, until he made sexist comments against his wife...ON INTERNATIONAL TV. Naa, we know Mahama is bad, but compared to Buhari's misogyny, he alright!
3. Boko Haram
Seriously, Nigeria can keep this. But we're actually praying they lose it themselves.
The level of fraudulent activity in Nigeria is way too high, they need to cut. We don't want none of that in Ghana.
Nigeria is officially in recession, and it seem Ghana is on that path with Mahama as president, but we will be kicking him out come 2016 elections so...we alright!.
6. Rampant Kidnapping
Remember when Mark Zuckerberg went jogging in Nigeria and everyone was worried that he'd be kidnapped? Yeah, that wouldn't have been an issue in Ghana.
7. Mega Corruption
To be fair, corruption exists in Ghana - how could it not under Mahama, but the impunity with which corruption has been carried out in Nigeria over the years will never match that of Ghana. And it never should.
8. Intertribal Conflicts
It's been rumored that Ashantis hate Ewes but that has never resulted in a war for us (unless you're counting Twitter wars), but the Biafra struggle and other in Nigeria are a constant reminder on how bad things could escalate if we let it. Which is why we don't.
