This email from one of the viewers got me rolling on the floor!
When Nigerians loot money, they keep it in Switzerland
When sick, they go to Germany or India
When investing, they go to the US
When buying mansions, they visit London
When shopping, they go to Dubai
When on holiday, they go to Paris or the Bahamas
When educating their kids, they select Europe
When praying, they go to Saudi Arabia or Jerusalem
But when they die, they want to be buried in Nigeria.
