7 Lies Nigerians tell one another


Nigerians are generally an honest bunch. Among many things, we will be honest if your cooking sucks, if your slay game is weak, if your weave looks like something that should tranquillised and skinned, and if your singing stinks. But there are certain lies that we are not above telling one another (you could almost say we have a Ph.D. in it) We are Viva Naija and here are 7 Nigerian lies that we excel in!

1) The “I have almost reached there” lie


It doesn’t matter if we in China or on the moon, WE ARE HAVE ALMOST REACHED DERE!

2) The “Ill see what I can do” lie


Many a graduate knows this lie well. IT CAN PAIN!!!

3) The “I always came first in school” lie


Nigerian Parents have been dropping this one ever since we gained independence

4) The “Government is Working” lie


The stock in trade of many a politician. Your jaw will hit the floor when you hear it!!

5) The “I have never farted” lie


This usually comes right after she has dropped a particularly wet one

6) The “We will get back to you” lie


My brother you will grow grey hair
