I was at the Nigerian Senate today (Senate President Bukola Saraki, Minority Leader Godswill Akpabio, Majority Leader Ahmed Lawan & Senator Remi Tinubu) and President Muhammadu Buhari in Aso Villa submitting a proposal for a Bill am crafting that will grant Nigerian citizenship to every African American that can trace their heritage by DNA or other records back to Nigeria. @OgbeniAyotunde
So I took a red eye flight Monday on British Airways from London to Abuja. It was booked solid in first, business and economy class by Nigerians.
Then the announcement for inflight shopping came on the PA system warning us at the end of the sales pitch that they would be needing additional identification like a passport from those who decide to use their credit cards to make a purchase. The implication clearly is that Nigerians are fraudsters who would use fake credit cards to purchase overpriced merchandise on British Airways.
Just so you know such an announcement will never be made on a London – Los Angeles or New York flight.
Forget the fact that Nigerians filled the seats and the London – Nigeria route is one of the most lucrative for British Airways.
This made my blood boil. Either my fellow Nigerian passengers were not aware they were just insulted or we have become desensitized to insults from white people after all US President Trump said we live in shitholes
In the same breath the attendant asked us to donate our spare change to educate poor Mohammed in Ghana. Why is it when white people claim to be helping Africans they are actually insulting us? – @OgbeniAyotunde
