  • “I saw District 9, and it didn't change what I think about Nigerians. Which is nothing. I only think about America."”

  • “Because the Nigerian government's vast oil wealth is always generously and transparently passed down to its grateful citizens, you can see why the information minister would chafe at a film that portrays Nigerians as corrupt thugs."”
