[chronicle] China Storms Nigeria by TrendTopStries: 9:33am On Jan 14
Beijing is gaining more influence every day in Africa's largest economy. To the point of worrying the Western powers, first and foremost the United States.

Bang DE DE deng!!!

These people only come to steal from us to develop their country. With all the Chinese in Nigeria why are we still backward?.

We are only after oil, and they (Asians) come to illegally mine our gold, diamond and other rich natural resources we have. The most painful part is we give them handshakes and thumbs up and congratulate them for stealing from us.
