Have you ever seen people take a “one way” (uni-directional traffic) or run red lights while you were in your lane obeying the law? Or see people ignore the pedestrian bridge to cross the express? Or (this one kills me the most) see people throw dirt out of their car windows?
From letting people’s files sit on desks for longer than necessary to lecturers keeping students in a class for more than necessary without a justifiable cause, Nigerian behaviour has been notable.
This shocking behavior, however, is not the case when they find themselves in foreign countries. Nigerians are not the same when they are at home compared to when they are abroad. Once they are out of their shores, most Nigerians become proper and extremely law-abiding. This makes me wonder if the system is responsible or if it is about morals and ethics. So, on today’s Begging Question, I want to hear from you.
Is the Nigerian behaviour a result of a bad system or by personal, moral, and ethical values?
Do you think it’s a culture thing like Saidu?
It’s now a cultural thing that everyone aspires to set and break standards left by predecessors, and Stockholm syndrome has set in so, most people don’t complain. They see being abused as a normal thing.Saidu
Or do you feel it is a moral problem caused by the system?
It is a moral and ethical values problem, which was caused by the bad system.bougainvillain
