Nigerian time is in the constitution.
Nigerian time is the reason our Senate will use 1,000 days to pass a bill, or why someone will just be leaving his house at the exact time of a set appointment. Here are few times Nigerian time was at the worst.
1. When God’s time is not the best.
That "awkward moment" when you are sent to give a talk to Deeper Life Corpers Fellowship… and you get there too early. #nigeriantime #smh

2. When you think you can beat Nigerian time but it beats you with experience.
Went for a meeting one hour late (deliberately)… I was the first person there.
Just when I thought I had perfected my Nigerian time.

3. It has even eaten deep into relationships.
Nigerian girl starts expressing her feelings when it's too late. Homie already moved onto another girl, next thing you know

4. And when our reputation goes international.

5. When the surprisee arrives before the surpriser.
The concept of a surprise party is obviously lost if you insist on #nigeriantime #africantime

6. And remember when Jega was so chill during the 2015 elections that he chilled into Nigerian time.
Recess for 10 minutes jega said…. We waited for 59 minutes tho …… #Nigeriantime

7. When you have no daylight savings but you have Nigerian time savings.
It's so annoying now that if you have an event for 7pm, you have to put 5.30 on the invites #NigerianTime

8. When you forget that the time given means the time you should leave the house.
They said 9 o'clock, I went at 9:30 and I was the 1st person there… I need to up my #NigerianTime game. I didn't learn well lol

9. On the phone, he’s around the corner. In real life, he’s on his couch at home.
Wale: Bri… I'm on my way
… 3 hours later
Wale: Bri; I'm coming around the corner
…. 20 mins later still waiting. #Nigeriantime #icant
