6 Reasons Why The Average Nigerian Wouldn’t Survive Without The Internet (Photos)
What if we all woke up tomorrow morning only to find out there’s no internet?
How do you think Nigerians would survive and for how long? Prior to the internet regime, we did pretty well, but would that be so?
Here are 6 reasons why Nigerians wouldn’t survive long without it:
What will we do without internet and mobile banking? From GTB to UBA, nearly every bank in Naija has banking apps, ATMs, USSD codes and more that would stop working if there is no internet. I guess we’d go back to the days of keeping money in pots buried underneath our houses because someone cannot queue forever inside a bank to withdraw and deposit money.
We live in an era where physical communication has been replaced with mobile communication. How will we share stuff happening in our lives with friends and family without the internet? It’s back to the NIPOST era!

We were just getting used to Uber and co. No more cab service. Abi, which internet will you use to order Uber? You have to go to your junction and go price taxi (kabu kabu) like a caveman.

With no internet, no more iPhone and Samsung phones as gifts. Guys are now free to buy clothes for those stingy Naija girls that will give you boxers and singlet while they wait for phones that can be used to buy land.
6. Recreational Activities
When was the last time you went to play football on the street? Usually, everyone is on their phones playing games like Pokemon Go, Candy Crush, Minion Rush etc. How will you download new games without the internet?
