Why is this same question always asked about Nigeria, why not Ethiopia, Egypt or DR Congo?

Whenever someone showcases something positive about those nations it’s duly accepted, but when someone does the same for Nigeria it’s always followed up with some criticism, like someone has an agenda to keep Nigerians in check.
