All Nigerian Men are Conmen , City girl Kenyan writer emphasised.
Nigerian writer Mr Victor D.O has come out to reply to the Kenyan Lady.
The purpose of writing this rejoinder is to correct your
misconceptions of Nigerian men. You said “All Nigerian men are
conmen”. “Repeat after me- all Nigerian men are conmen”. You
emphasized. I feel strongly compelled to educate you that not all
Nigerian men are conmen. I make bold to say “Repeat after me- all
Nigerian men are not conmen.”
I can’t deny the fact that some Nigerian men may be conmen but

If you attempt to avoid all Nigerian men, pleasant Nigerian men will

There are many Nigerian men who are conscientiously loving. I know of
Kenyan women who are happily married to Nigerians so much that they

lives. I will like to pose these questions for your objective
consideration (1) Are all Kenyan men righteous? (2) Are all Kenyan
ladies so gullible that they can not sift the grain from the chaff?
Nevertheless, I appreciate the tips you put forth for dealing with
Nigerian men. The tips hold true for all men world-wide, Kenyan men
More-over, your article spurs me to resolve to marry a Kenyan lady if
I am opportune to come across a compatible one, so that I can drive
home my point not only in writing but also in practice. Thanks.
