I came across these pictures on the BBC w/site and wept for a few minutes.
We even pray inside dumps!
I know that GOD will answer one of these days if we do more than pray -tell ourselves the truth.
The citizens of the most blessed country in Africa have no business living in dumps.  Cool

BBC! Do people who are living in dumps looked like these in the picture. For years BBC, CNN and private individual etc comes to the continent of Africa and make lies film. Most of the assault was South Africa don't believe that now that things are not so correct in Nigeria it is going to be exempt. And you know that the love of money is the root of all evil so these Nigerians will sell out their country for money. Let us pray that persons will not have the wrong perceptions about Nigeria and Nigerians again. Then again we cannot stop persons from having their opinions. The High Commission of Nigeria need to start working on promoting Nigeria in a Positive way.

That was an organised crime by BBC. When i was watching the documentary,i knew it was fake especially listening to both of them speak understandable English, but will you blame Eric Obuh or the Ibo man collecting money from BBC and making up stories. It's rough in Nigeria but not as hard as the documentary made it. That is typical British attitude,always concentrating on other people's negative part and will never say good things about others but will always promote their own trying to be superior to all and that is why they are not progressing any longer. Their society is detorioriating and they want everybody to go down with them.

@Kemp I never been to Nigeria and am not disputing that persons doesn't live in dumps. What am saying is that BBC etc always take the bad and highlighted it. They done the same here in Jamaica as well. Is it that there isn't nothing good going on in Nigeria that they cannot have a mixture on the tape. Why always highlighting the bad. For months Nigeria as been in the spotlight with Negative news why highlighting more. I will not encourage bad advertisement Kemp whether I was there before yes are no.

We av to stop decieving ourselves we Nigerians,dis is reall nd if u prove it wrong u can visit d place is in along Alhausa in Ikeja area u,ll see dirty activities going on there everyday.These is not a sabotage or about to spoil image of our country but to learn how we can fight corrupted leaders for our own betterment.
If i can see any of Nigerian stand up and prove these wrong that means our problem just started.Many people lived in slum thats where they making their living.What do u expect in a nation where is curroptions is an habit,a country with no leaders,a country where there is no human feelings,a country where some people above law,a country where hooliganism welcome,a country where u can do away with any  malpractice.
I love my country and i am a proud Nigerian,if d western world can expose us like dis may be there will be changes.

Thank you all, you had spoken well as a Nigerian. This is true, It bad to pick the worst scenario of a nation and put its on the net as if this is the only good thing BBC saw in Nigeria.

Our Leader should wake up to there civil responsibility by providing basic Amenity to his citizen.

Pls stop making it sound as if Nigeria is the worst place on planet earth.What BBC had just done,i don't see how it will solve anything but rather come and go but still nothing solved.This isn't the first time such has been done against Nigeria but still nothing.Making Nigeria great like the western world is not a day job,it's a gradual process which will take years to achieve.so stop making things sound as if every part of Nigeria is as bad as you are saying it.Am sure if Nigeria is what you predict to be,you won't be alive to post all these.Yes!though no body is happy with our present predicament but we sholud strive to concentrate on how possible to correct our past and present mistake so as to secure the future.You don't
have to cryout loud cos we already know our problems.

I'll submit this report to the minister for information and I'm sure she'll request apology from BBC or place a heavy sanction on them.
