FIVE REASONS SOME NIGERIANS WOULDN'T BE CASTING THEIR VOTES TODAY

Very much aware of the elections taking place today, we all
      know that some Nigerians wouldn't be exercising their
      franchise. I have sourced and come up with top five reasons
      some Nigerians wouldn't be casting their votes today despite
      the yapping, especially this week on the presidential
      candidates; GEJ and GMB..

      1. FEAR OF AN UNFAIR ELECTION

       This is the top on the list of the majority of the
      non-voting Nigerians. Yes, the internet has been carrying
      varial images of the "#don'tvotedon'tcomplain" theory but we
      all know that irrespective of all talk and promises, the
      votes would most definitely be tampered with (oops, sorry to
      burst your optimistic bubble)................. keep reading after the cut............

"ARE YOU SERIOUS?" OR BETTER STILL "I'M TOO LAZY TO EXPRESS MY SUPRISE"

Every single day I get out of my bed, I hear approximately thirty "Are you serious?-es" ("es" being the plural suffix).
From my rommates, to my neighbours, the gossipy girls I walk pass,my friends, the couple arguing at a corner and even myself (haha you thought I wouldn't mention myself?).
In my close observation, the "are you serious?" can be used in various situations depending on the speakers' state of mind.
An "are -y-o-u se-rious?!" usually with the syllabes of "you" and "serious" stressed indicates the speaker is totally suprised at seeing someone after a long time; friend or foe. E.g. (sees a friend after two years) Mike! Are yooou seeeeerious?!....is that yoou..?

THREE REASONS OUR INSTITUTION SUCKS

As much as this seems to be a shallow ish, I've been trying
      to go a step ahead in really understanding the challenges we
      face everyday in school (The University of Nigeria, Nsukka
      specifically), that I took the liberty of asking some
      students the question, "what do you think are the top
      three reasons this institution sucks?" Institution being
      "unn" as a school and student body?" I also took the liberty
      of posting their replies below, LOL without their permission.
      For privacy purpose, I only included their first names. You
      guys, please forgive me..so_ leggo..................................
