A statemen+ credited to Gov. Fashola of Lagos state on Channels TV dat having a car is a sign of prosperity. Though taken aback by such comment,i felt i need to convinced dat he(Gov. BRF) is wrong. so NLers wat do u think?

What type & year model of car ar u talkin abt? Can u say some1 hustling with a 1945 Volkswagen beetle shows prosperity. And can u say Some1 that purchases a 2012 Range Rover HSE sports with other cars parked in his garage doesn't show sign of prosperity?

What is prosperity? Is it not a sign of having something to spend regularly and gradualy increasing in wealth(my dico)?
Even if someone bought a beetle, i'm sure he uses his money. Let's pray cashflow continues and he can buy a toyota next 3months. Now, cos u bought a v8 bmw doesn't mean shit. U can go broke tomorrow and have to sell it to the 6months old beetle man.
Hence my assertion, yes it is. Cos if u don't have, u can't buy. Let's jes hope the cash inflow continues.

Absolute Yes if you live in Nigeria. And our women are not helping matters at all as they see a guy with a nice car as being prosperous.
Re: Is Having A Car A Sign Of Prosperity? by abhosts(m): 10:13am On Aug 15, 2012
It depends on the type of car and the Payment Method used in purchasing it. If someone shells out 15m Naira in cash for a car, that person is surely prosperous.

Buying a car or two is necessity and not a sign of prosperity. Building a house is not even a sign of prosperity unless you built a mansion or drive a bently.

You just killed me. grin
But it all depends....Acar can be an asset as well as a liability.
@Topic, hell no.. Driving a fancy car isn't a sign of prosperity..Fashola needs to be taught some basic financial principles.

for the fact that one is able to get a car does not show any sign of prosperity at all...for goodness sake...do u understand what it means to be prosperous?... [i][/i]
Re: Is Having A Car A Sign Of Prosperity? by Nobody: 10:36am On Aug 15, 2012
The fact that a car is a liability and a depreciable asset doesnt mean it's not a property.If you can acquire one like every other property you own,then it means you are progessing.

If there is no money,will people think of buying cars ? If people are now buying cars,then a revolution from the old ways has occurred which means progress.

Now i can understand why some group of people will do anything even rituals just to have some of the crumbs from the vanity.

What does it take to be prosperous without you linking it to money,property and other valuable possessions ? Car is a valuable possession !
