Nigerians are uncannily smart people

 A young Nigerian man walked into a bank in New York City and asked for the loan officer. He told the loan officer that he is going to Lagos on a vacation, for two weeks, and need to borrow $5,000. The bank officer told him that the bank will need some form of security for the loan, so the Nigerian man handed over the keys to a new brand BMW 6 series. The car was parked on the street in front of the bank. The Nigerian man produced the title and everything checked out. The loan officer agreed to accept the car as collateral for the loan. The bank’s President and its officers all enjoyed a good laugh at the Nigerian man, for using an $80,000 BMW as collateral against a $5,000 loan. An employee of the bank then drove the BMW into the bank’s underground garage and parked it there. Two weeks later, the Nigerian man returned, repaid the $5,000 and the interest, which came to $15.41. The loan officer said, “Sir, we are very happy to have had your business, and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a little puzzled. While you were away, we checked you out and found that you are a successful business man. What puzzles us is; why would you bother to borrow $5,000”? The Nigerian man replied: “Where else in New York City can I park my car for two weeks, and pay only $15.41 and expect it to be there when I return?” The bank employees watched as he pulled out of the garage, windows down and sunroof open. Nigerian Juju music blasting from his car, as he pulled away.

Nigerians are very smart people, eh.

    bull crap, heard this joke before, last I recall it was a businessman not a young Nigerian, Im all for promoting Nigerians as Im one myself but posts like these show off Nigerians as liars and crooks

    this a very mean-spirited plagiarism of a joke that has been in the public domain since the sixties. if that is a benchmark for judging intelligence then naijarians are not intelligent at all. they only street-smart scammers–all of them to the last person–some potentially, some “on active service.” an durunwa all of them!!!

    Hey man, where is your sense of humour. I am sure this joke was written by a Nigerian. Life is too short to take things so seriously.
