Nigeria Too Big To Fail — Rwandan President by lakeside025(m): 6:32pm On Nov 11, 2012

The President of the Republic of Rwanda, Paul Kagame, has said Nigeria, with its vast population and resources, has the capacity to solve its problems of corruption and underdevelopment.



Kagame, who said this in Lagos on Saturday, while speaking to young Nigerian professionals at a seminar organised by the African Personality Forum, noted that if Nigeria failed, the aftermath would reverberate across Africa.

He said, "Nigeria is too big, too resourceful to allow these things to continue. If there is a problem in Nigeria it would spread, even to as far as Rwanda. That is why we as Rwandans are ready to work together with Nigeria to solve our problems together and learn from each other."

After sharing his experiences as well as the progress recorded in his country in the past decade, Kagame warned Nigerian youths not to give up on the country and challenged them to take up the responsibility of changing the status quo.

He stated, "It starts and ends with the people. It is not the oil that is the problem or gas that is the problem or the lack of it that is problem, it is the people. And people can address any problem. You don't need to give up and say things have been like this for so many years, it won't change. Please don't give up. It is never too late, you can turn things around. In fact, this is a challenge for young people of Nigeria. People are looking to you for solution."

On corruption, Kagame said his country was able the deal with it by taking actions and implementing policies that helped build a system which helds people accountable.

He said the Rwandan government would not take all the credits for the success the nation recorded in fighting corruption, stating that much of it came as a result of positive response from the people.

He added that only strict implementation of policies and recommendations would help in eradicating corruption.

The Rwandan president insisted that the future of Africa was dependent on its human capital and not the West, stressing that African nations must, as a matter of priority, invest in their youth.

He said, "Africa has everything it needs for development. In fact, we are spoilt with resources that we can use to develop Africa. But how can we have everything and we do not have development? The answer lies in the young people.

"Some people think the large youth population of Africa is a problem, but I see it as an opportunity for development."

Why do we indulge in so much self-deception? Why
Have you heard of Sudan, broken into two?
Ethiopia from where Eritrea separated?
Malaysia from where Singapore separated?
India from where Pakistan and Bangladesh separated?

Did USA diplomats not predict Nigeria will break up sometime
So much about courting you.
BTW, note it here that china WILL also break up ultimately.

The Darling Dictator of the Day


Kagame’s government asserted its power in the run-up to the 2010 presidential elections, when authorities barred most opposition political parties from registering for elections, closed down many independent newspapers, and witnessed the flight into exile of several prominent government officials who said they “feared for their lives.”


There were also three suspicious pre-election shootings. One of the exiled officials, Kagame’s former chief of staff, Faustin Kayumba Nyamwasa, was shot in the stomach in South Africa after openly criticizing the Rwandan government. A Rwandan journalist, Jean Léonard Rugambage, was killed shortly after his article, which pointed to government complicity, was published. The deputy leader of the Green Party, which was among those unable to register, was found not only dead but with his head partly severed.

Kagame garnered 93 percent of the vote. Soon after the election, an exhaustively researched United Nations “mapping exercise” report led the veteran Rwanda expert Filip Reyntjens to state that “there is overwhelming evidence of responsibility for war crimes and crimes against humanity” against Kagame. A foreign expert (who asked not to be named) also reported the disappearance of “a large number” of Rwandan civil society members in 2007.
