It’s World Smile Day but it would be hard to gather a handful of smiling Nigerians especially as recession bites hard.

Someone once said, “If we were to count the number of things wrong with Nigeria, we would run out of numbers”, which is quite ironic because you can’t run out of numbers.

So, it’s no surprise that on a day set aside to celebrate ’32 teeth’ and lips that stretch from ear to ear, Nigerians are still wearing a frown.

Here are random photos depicting facial expressions you could catch on the face of Nigerians – especially at this point in time.
