Recently, America’s TV girl, Oprah Winfrey, called on America to sever diplomatic relationships with world’s topmost corrupt countries.

Worst of all the countries, Oprah surmised, is Nigeria.

According to her, “all Nigerians – regardless of their level of education – are corrupt.”

It is very pathetic that Oprah could ascribe to a larger population, the evil act of an insignificant number of persons in the world’s most populous black nation.

Oprah’s conclusion is based on the fact that a Nigerian of Igbo extraction was caught with $500,000, which was alleged to have been stolen from a foreigner through the Internet fraud popularly known as 419.

Oprah had sponsored an hour-long programme, which ran for several days on the CNN, with the sole aim of exposing the clever tricks espoused by this group of Nigerians to con their victims.

Much has been said about the greed of the victims themselves, and I need not say more about it.

However, at a time when Americans are committing heinous crimes against children and women, nobody has tagged all Americans as murderous.

So, why call all Nigerians rogues because of the sin of a few bad eggs?

Oprah regularly tells her life story: how she was segxwally abused by close relations, how she ‘walked the streets’ (Americans’ euphemism for prostitution), etc., but nobody has ever deemed it fit to tag all American men as incestuous because of Oprah and others’ experiences.

She did drugs – just like the typical American teenager, but nobody has cast all American youths in the mould of drug abusers!

So, why should an individual that is supposed to know better sentence a nation to odium for the infraction of a tiny fraction of its population?

I urge Oprah and her likes to disabuse their minds about Nigerians.

Be wary of requests for money from strangers, and if you fall for a scam, blame your greed and not Nigerians.

Whatever the likes of Oprah says should not matter. At least, corruption is in America too. Can you for the desire to kill a rat, raze the house down ? Her level of emancipation is low and could have been caused by the fact that she is very rich. Ever heard of Rich and Stupid ?

thank you for posting something like this god bless you brother.
it comes as a surprise when you read such stories about nigeria. it pains me, they talk about other leaving theselve out. they see the pick of wood in ur eyes leaving the log of wood in thier eyes. am not suporting what 419iers are doing but, which country is clean to condem another. all still bounce back to our governmet, if the country is well planned and organised ,nigeria is richer than all this countries,we dont need to travel out to do odd jobs and involve in 419.i pray God will give us Good leaders who will have the love of we followers at heart. it well what we that are outside the country are facing, but people at home will always want to travel.well everybody is free to do what ever.

OPRAH THINK SHE'S AMERICAN, I BET SHE DOES NOT EVEN KNOW HER ROOTS. WHEN NIGERIANS MAKE GOOD NAME, THE SO CALLED LOST IN DIASPORA ARE SUPPOSED TO BE IN SOLIDARITY WITH US. A QUICK DNA TEST MIGHT ACTUALLY TELL WHERE SHE'S FROM.
NO ONE STAYS IN THE TOP FOREVER SO IF DANGOTE CAN LEGITIMATELY BE CELEBRATED, WHAT'S HER STRESS/ WHY IS SHE BORTHERED ABOUT NIGERIANS NOW, WHEN IT COMES TO SOMEONE BEATING HER IN THE GAME.
IF SHE WAN CRY, MAKE SHE CRY. I WISH SHE SEES ALL THESE REPLIES.

She is just jealous. I believe deep in her mind she longs to be a naija but probably she doesn't know how to come to terms with her mind. We naija people know ourselves better than her words potrays therefore we should not take her serious.

Oprah is a woman I held in high esteem until now. How on earth can a literate person tag All Nigerians as corrupt people? A country that produce the likes of Me (Navigator), Wole Shoyinka (Nobel Laureate), Obafemi Awolowo (economist), Nnamdi Azikiwe (1st Nig. president), Philips Emegwali (Father of Internet), Gani Fawehinmi (Dogged activist), Dora Akunyili (Life safer), Fela, Shade Adu, 2face, Dbanj (Ambassadors)................ Millions of health, Technology, military, and odd workers in the US.
Oprah, its shameful and painful for u to look back at your root (Africa) and point a bad finger at the hope of the continent. Its only a bastard that uses the left hand to describe her father's house.
Come to think of it, U live in a country that could be regarded as the Sodom & Gomorrah of our time where corruption flows from the presidency to U the old bitch in the street. Who taught our youths all about credit card fraud, car theft, bank robbery, cheque fraud, just to name a few.
B4 u paint my beautiful country bad because a legitimate business man (Dangote) beat u to be no 1 richest black person pls look inwards and search both urself and ur adopted country. IYA OPRAH WITCHFREY ABI NA WINFREY U DON FALL UR HAND OOOOOOOOOOO!
