What Is The Biggest Problem Facing Nigeria? by brabus(m): 10:49am On Jun 05, 2012
Nigeria is facing economic disaster on a scale few nations have ever experienced. Most people are unaware of the easily observable signs of this crisis, where it came from and how to stop it. While we persist in our 'giant of Africa' mentality, we have quietly
become a third-class country in many respects.
I am starting this thread to see what other people thought our problems consisted of.

1. We no longer produce what we need to
sustain ourselves.
2. We import much more than we export
3. We are selling off our assets
4. We are taking on massive debts to sustain a standard of living we can no longer afford.
5. We have budget deficit.
6. We are gradually sinking into recession.
7. We do have policy deficit.
8. Unemployment is stubbornly high
9. We do not have big thinkers running the our states any more, now we have fine tuners.
10. We barely get by.
11. Lack of accountability. Everyone has someone else to blame for any problems, without thinking about how do I contribute to this problem, and what can I do?
12. Corruption in every nook and corners.

SOLUTION to our PROBLEMS.

1.If there is a way to stop corruption from the Presidency downward.
this will make it possible for us to properly manage our resources.

2.We (Nigeria)should stop borrowing money and Advice from IMF.
Because,the "Terms and Condition" that applies in getting the mo#£¥(lLoan) is part of what is killing the country.


3.Instead of destroying and labelling "those" refinaries "illegal";the govt.
Organize a well Planned Program of Action whereby all the local refinary will be under a body and controlled by Govt. Policy (to the benefit of everyone in the country )just like our GSM.
By this,there will be total eradication of fuel importation.
NB:we all know why they don't want our Local refinares to work!!!!


3.Political Office holders(from the Presidency,downwards) should start using the same salary scheme as the civil servants.
by so doing,Politics in Nigeria will not be a do or die affair and more educated,trust-worthy and serious minded people will be encouraged to come into Politics.

HOWEVER,if all this did not work out or is taking too Looooooooog.
we will apply the "ULTIMATE SHORTCUT"

who can guess the term shortcut here?
abeg,make una post.....

We need a new law. Corruption in Nigeria is a crime that should draws capital punishment. Nigeria should also have extradition agreements with most of the countries harbouring the Nigerian fugitives guilty of corruption crimes.

Another problem in Nigeria is education. It seems that Nigeria is progressing in terms of education but I don't think so. We have more certificates than ever but we are less educated.

We are more literate but less aware. Less aware of duties and moralities. We have more information at our disposal, but lack wisdom to put that information to proper use.
