Nigerians can be very religious people no doubt. That said, going to church in any part of the country will bring you in contact with different kinds of people. Below are 5 different types of people you meet in church.
These guys are the real deal. They come to church with the best of intentions. Their purpose in church is to listen to the word of God and put the word in practice as best as they can, in truth and in spirit.
These ones! Their reason for being in church has to do with perception. For them being there is an obligation. They cannot afford to be absent from church service for fear of the label – pagans. People have to know they are “good people”. This makes them attend service.
Ohhh the latecomers! What sense would this list make without you?
You find the latecomers hurrying up to church after service is well under way. They usually seem mortified that they are late. Next service yet, the latecomers are at it again, hurrying as usual. You would think when they hurry along, there is an imminent storm threatening mankind.
The slay crew
The aim of the slay crew is to be the cynosure of all eyes. Their appearance is usually very trendy and eye catching. If going to heaven is a function of appearance and physical looks, the slay crew would be the first to make heaven.
The worst enemy of ushers. The sleepers are at it as soon as the sermon begins. Even when the workers wake them up for the umpteenth time during the sermon, the sleeper will claim to be awake and attentive.
So, on which do you fall on? Remember the purpose of being in church is to listen to the word. If you find yourself not listening to the word when you attend service, please change.

5 affordable abroad study destinations to consider
If you wish to pursue your education abroad, it is important to consider budget for tuition costs, costs of living and all associated expenses. If you’re on a budget, countries with high living costs should not be considered even if the tuition costs of schools are low.
Here are 5 suitable countries to consider for individuals interested in obtaining good degrees in foreign schools while on a budget.
According to Vanguard News, about 13000 Nigerian students study in Malaysian universities. It’s a study destination for Nigerians due to its low cost of living, relatively low tuition fees and global recognition of academic qualification. There is also the occasional scholarship to international students.
Tuition fees will probably set you back anywhere between 3500 Euros to 5000 Euros per year. Costs of living will most likely be anywhere between 350 Euros to 500 Euros per month.
Hungary according to a UNESCO survey is gradually becoming a destination country for foreign education. Three quarters of international students in Hungary come from just ten countries. Nigeria is among these ten countries.
International students will have to pay tuition fees which usually range between 1000-3000 Euros every academic year. Also, they may need to pay registration fees which range between 40-700 Euros depending on the course chosen by a student. Cost of living in Hungary is approximately 450-500 Euros per month.
The country’s higher education system has a strong reputation and, most importantly, tuition is FREE of charge generally for many undergrad and Masters courses.
All you have to pay is a fee of around €100 (£75) to €250 (£185) per semester, which covers administration costs as well as the work of the student union.
Life in Germany is relatively cheap compared to other countries, too. The German Academic Exchange Service recommends a monthly budget of around €800 (£595) to cover expenses, which is enough to enjoy your stay without having to pinch pennies.
Portugal has many beautiful and interesting features that make international students simply fall in love with this country once they come here for their study experience. For one thing, you enjoy amazing weather, beautiful beaches and landscapes, lovely cuisine and fine wines.
Secondly, Portugal is one of the cheapest countries in Europe, with low living costs, and Portuguese universities offer numerous quality study programmes while charging affordable tuition fees.
Tuition fees for bachelor’s and master’s degrees average around 950-1,250 Euros per year. Cost of living is approximately 800 Euros although this can vary depending on lifestyle.
Although it is one of the tiniest countries in the world, Luxembourg offers a splendidly cosmopolitan environment and a home to plenty of top-ranked universities.
Luxembourg is also one of the safest nations in the world; and, due to its multiculturalism, any foreign student can easily adapt to the vibrant and lively atmosphere of Luxembourg.
Tuition fees will depend on what type of course you choose to study and at what level. On average, you should expect to pay between €400 and €800 per year. For business-related studies, tuition fees are around €4,000-€5,000 per year. Cost of living is approximately 300-450 Euros.
