  7. If i will judge Nigeria by the current situation of things, i think Nigeria deserve to be rank No1 most currupt country in the World. A country in which the Gonverment past advert for employment after they have employed their brothers and sisters, A country were you must bribe to get employed. A country were there is no good road, electricity, education stability non even food for the poor masses. It is a shame on Our government who cloth themselves in white on TV and soak themselves in devils blood in the inside. Thought i don’t regret being a Nigerian.
