Obiagelli:
That's a new one, never knew qatar wasn't investing in its citizens, you mean they don't go to the best school, they have the best labs, best sports facilities, the hold large stake in any company in their company.

Btw tell me how nigeria invests in its citizens, through ASUU strike?

Qatar university ranks 17th in the middle east and 1772 out of 8000 universities in the world. The universities are occupied by foreign teachers. Their citizens are lazy because of the large sum of pocket money their government pays them from oil revenue.
Even their national news network is occupied by 98% foreigners.
They lack a lot of experts.
Money that should go to building other sources of revenue and create jobs for their people.
What will happen when the oil dries up? Why do you think their monarchs don't want to upset the US?
qatar is not an industrialized country and should not be compare with Nigeria. Period.

If you trully went to university you would know that ASUU is a group of selfish lectures who want nothing more than more powers to control the Universities.

To the best of my knowledge, the government provides them with funds but the funds end up with the VCs, professors and some senior lecturers. Is it government that sells handouts to us even after knowing we have text books? Is it government that mandates us to pay money before our scrpts can be marked? Is it the government that told our lecturers to be lazying around till they skip they lecture hours thereby taking the poor students backwards?

Their demands are outrageous and haven't you noticed how incoherent they are with defending the reason for their demands?

These guys are well paid but they are too lazy and corrupt to be given authonomy to run these schools by themselves.

Just imagine when government hands off the Universities. ASUU has been compromised and is now a corrupt body. And i hate them as much as i hate many other lecturers.

Obiagelli: True that but we've got to do something about it else our future generations wouldn't spare us

I don't know what else the masses can do in this present situation...most of those loud human-right activists that we have are dining with the looters of the nation's wealth. Or are you thinking of how we should eliminate them all??...lool...no, they have gained powers and even have strong connections everywhere. It's either you play by their rules or you continue to complain. I would only be deceiving you and myself if i say there is still 'middle class' in this country. It's either you have much to squander or you have lots to ponder. The way things are going in Nigeria, it can only get worse, sincerely and that's the bitter truth. We only need God's help and we need it FAST. I am an optimist but realism is needed too.

MAYOWAAK: While Nigerian governors were busy meeting and strategising non-stop on who should be the next chairman of the Political Billionaires’ Club, popularly known as the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF), the Ruler of Dubai – a state in the United Arab Emirates – was busy unveiling plans to build three world-class hospitals and 40 new clinics to promote “medical tourism”. His Highness Sheikh Mohammad bin Rashid Al Maktoum said the plan was to build hospitals comparable to any medical facility anywhere in the world. They will also build five-star hotels next door to the facilities for the relatives of patients. The objective is to add another dimension to the Dubai story – trade, travel, real estate and now medical tourism. That is vision. That is leadership.

About the same time in my dearly beloved country, our multi-billionaire governors and other politicians were meeting day and night and night and day over who controls the meaningless Political Billionaires’ Club. Their disagreement was not about building world-class hospitals and world-class schools. It was not about fixing the potholes that litter our roads all over the federation. It was not about ending infant and maternal mortality. It was not about making Nigeria a land of trade and tourism. It was not about turning Nigeria to an exporter of mobile phones, like South Korea, or dairy products, like the Netherlands. The goal of political power, as far as they can see, is intrigues. Politics starts and ends with elections. Development is a distraction.

Now, with all the emotion and passion being exerted in the polity in the past few weeks over the NGF election, I will not be surprised if many of these politicians end up with high blood pressure and stroke by 2015. Well, I’ve got news for them. By then, Dubai will hopefully have opened one of their world-class hospitals, complete with the best equipment and the best medical personnel the world has to offer. Nigerian politicians can go there to receive treatment after the elections. With no world-class hospital in Nigeria, Dubai will eagerly welcome our leaders with open arms. After all, are these chubby-cheeked politicians and their fronts not the ones buying up the choice property in Dubai while millions of Nigerians remain homeless?
Insightful. A food for thought. No one has put it better like. Like i said in my earlier post, this calls for sober reflection, and not calling for the crucifixion of obiagelli. It grieved me to have elected leaders leaving our shore to far away india, cuba, dubai for medical attention. What happen to the average Nigerians who can afford such? That is callous, wickedness and total disregard to the very right of the populace. Yet, gullible as some are, will come here to attack anyone whose opinion of the bad state of the nation contract theirs. Every factor for development; population, oil, solid minerals are within our bound but failure of leadership which breed ethnicity, religious intolerance, corruption and general backwardness should take the centre stage of this topic and not this shallow thinking express here today. How many of you are comforting watching those sick patients being displayed on AIT soliciting for funds running into millions to be transported and treated in India thus increasing the Gdp of that country, quite shameful. That is a clear evident of failed leadership. Development transceds couple of good houses and office blocks to availability of basic and adequate amenities and service utilities which presently, is grossly lacking. Pls, stop calling for Obi's head.

Look! Obi's comparison is provocative because he/she never placed Nigeria and Qatar on the same playing field. It is an outburst of frustration and hopelessness. If he/she had something to say about our corrupt politicians who are fighting to get enough for themselves and their children,and not the constituencies they represent, he/she would have presented it plainly for Nigerians to make their contributions. No doubt, Nigerian has a leadership problem. CBN is busy using all its resources in fighting inflation to retain the value of Naira for the corrupt politician, while Nigerian youth unemployment is growing in geometric terms. Revolution is the only answer which these corrupt politicians will escape.

What op posted is a reflection of poor management of our collectivn common wealth and shouldn't have attracted unwarrented critism which is a loop hole the elite seek for to play on the gullibility of the ppl.

How can just posting pictures can be "treasonous"?. What about leaders who loots money that could have been used to build cities and infrastructures?. For me looting is treasonous because they loot money from their own nation.

Nigeria has been a failure but it is fundamentally flawed to imply, as this thread seems to, that we ought to be like Qatar or the UAE. For reasons others have stated, comparing Nigeria and the Gulf oil rich states is comparing apples and oranges.

The population difference is not something to be dismissed off hand. The Emirati rulers are as corrupt as ours, only, they have populations the size of a Nigerian city so they can afford to embezzle money and still have more than enough left over.

If we should compare, we need to compare ourselves with the likes of Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan. All poor countries whose living standards were not far from ours, even lower, in the 60s but all who are now developed countries known for their technological prowess.

ochejoseph: Obiageli what you did was wrong and I think you should apologise ,your choice of pictures especially for Nigeria was terrible I understand the 80% rule you are trying to play but Bad as e bad Nigerians know when to defend Nigeria . Bless Nigeria
This post reminds me of one of the reasons why I dont like apologising to people, especially people like this, because every time I try to, I feel like I'm actually massaging someone's ego (that's disgusting)...
Having said that, my point here is, Nigerians have very big problem with their ego. We see and place ourselves to high, above what we are. We brag (talking is cheap). We think we deserve special treatments and recommendAtions, more than other nations around us, because we are the 'giant', the most populous. We really are great people, very intelligent, very creative etc. But we also are very EGOCENTRIC.
See all this tribal issues going on here? That's us trying to protect our egos (disgusting).
That is because we feel insecure, about our future, about what's gonna happen to our reputation (cheap reputation based on talks and AK-47, a pure West African dream)if all this people we've been pouting our chest at wake up and realize that they are even better than us... we boast about the past, we fight over the past and we live in it, afraid to think of the future.

According to the OP or whatever, The point I believe she's is trying to make sincerely is that our country, Nigeria, is not where it is supposed to be, because of (should I say) the short sightedness of us (I may sound offensive, but all I want to do is say my mind, if You feel offended, don't expect any apologies.)
The governor of a state where I stay was just awarded the best governor in Nigeria by Bill Gates foundation, but the fact is to the majority of his people, besides the fact that there's no visible proof that he has stolen their money, he is the most under-performing governor of all times. You know why? Because he embraced the future. Drawing future city plans, constructing things that will be needed as time goes by, which are of economic importance. I'm not trying to advertise anybody, mind you, try and get my point. We live in the moment, we like things that happen immediately, too darn impatient for development, and that's what the leaders have been bringing; things that last for the moment; call it ecstasy if you like.

China is the oldest nation state there is. Nigeria is not a nation state. We were forced together and we had so many things to reconcile before we could move forward.

Jumble the english, french and the germans together the way it was done with us and what you have, would be the same thing we are experiencing now.
The likes of you actually think that becos we are blacks, we are less intelligent than them and they would have done better id they were jumbled up like we were.
