How can it be high?
That's the question I have been asking myself over the last one week.
It all started about two weeks ago when one of my colleagues at work who shares the office with me came to work at the beginning of the week looking so downcast.She obviously had a very bad weekend.When she couldn't hold it any longer,she began to pour out her heart(that's a story for another day).
Few hours later,I saw her checking her BP in the clinic and I decided to check mine out of curiosity.After fiddling with the equipment for a few seconds,the nurse said my BP was a little bit high.The look on my face changed and I was wondering why my BP should be a 'little bit high' at this stage of my life.
It got me thinking for a few days and it suddenly dawned on me that the situation in our dear treasure called Naija could be the cause of my high BP.
-erratic supply of electricity
-democracy has turned into a 'feast' for our politicians
-you need to have the right connections to get a job
-one needs to also get a postgraduate qualification to increase your chances of getting a job
-cost of living is so high
-young people die everyday
-as a man in Nigeria,so much is expected from you
-naija girls want the money first before comittment
-so many people 'flash' you and expect you to call back
-everything that can make you a man is damn so expensive ...
... the list is endless!
So tell me, why won't my BP be a 'little bit high'?
