WHY NIGERIANS NOW SPRAY DOLLARS AT PARTIES


Recently, the Nigerian National Assembly passed into law a bill prohibiting the act of “spraying” the Naira (the Nigerian currency) at parties. The apex law making body also went further to recommend a jail term for offenders. But trust Nigerians for their ability to circumvent any law that stands in their way, an appropriate ‘solution’ has been found to this law. In stead of spaying the Naira, people have now resorted to spraying American Dollars and other foreign currencies, which are easily converted at the numerous ‘black markets’ in Lagos. Since the new law only forbids the spraying of Naira alone and not of other currencies, no law is broken. Can you beat that?

What can i say, Nigerians have an uncanny ability to understand the law and subvert it. I don't blame them. "Spraying' is a key aspect of Nigeria's culture across tribes, religions. To try banning it and fail to write an appropriate law that accounts for such a clear loophole is baffling. Ok, I lie, it's not that baffling. The lawmakers need to give up their day jobs, because if they can't even figure this small law out, how can one trust them with the big issues.

Anyway, I will be spraying whatever currency I have in my possession at any party I attend in Naija. Let them arrest me. lol! Just kidding, EFCC no see me oh. loL!
