Rossikk:

You make fine points, But I tend to see it a bit different. What I think has happened is that each African is essentially two persons rolled into one. Or more accurately one person operating in two worlds, at once concurrently and simultaneously. The first world is the traditional African world in which he would never steal a goat or hen in his village or clan, no matter how hungry he was, and would never dream of looting funds in his Lagos-based village association.

The second world is the imported world of western type schools, bureaucracy, local and state govts, federal govt, labour associations, police, lecturers, ie the world we inhabit on a macro-level. THIS world to the African is easily compromisable compared to the first. This second world is not regarded as sacred. It is seen almost as a violation. An inconvenient imposition. Something to be taken advantage of, even abused, if benefits accrue from so doing. It is almost as if the African is subconsciously rejecting the instruments of his subjugation. Like a stomach rejecting foreign foods, leading to diarrhea.

I think we need a way of indigenising something about the way we do things at the macro level, especially in officialdom, and give it more grassroots credibility by linking it somehow to our traditions and cultural heritage. In Botswana they have a House of Chiefs which must be consulted in all matters pertaining to the population. Botswana - not by accident - is also the least corrupt nation in Africa and among the top economic performers. It is this sort of marriage between indigenous and modern structures that could see us make a real breakthrough in curbing many societal vices, I reckon. We have to reconnect with who we are as Africans, on a macro-level. Link the macro with the micro. So that when you steal at macro level, it brings shame to the micro level. To your village. Today there is a disconnect between the two paradigms. That must change or you can forget about ending corruption and other vices.


You have spoken well! Our culture must not be severed away from democracy. There's a clan in Colombia that still operates on cultural democracy. On one particularly important vote, the community elders had decided how they wished their representative to vote. The parliamentarian, now far away from his community in the halls of power in the capital, voted differently. Again the elders met and agreed that for defying the wishes of the community he was elected to represent, the parliamentarian should walk many miles through the mountains and then bathe in the freezing water of a sacred mountain lake in order to purge himself. This he did, and balance within the community was restored. Perhaps this technique would not be appropriate elsewhere, but the point is that it is up to each country and indeed each community to search for ways to both keep the peace and protect against the potential betrayal of elected leaders while respecting its culture.

Nigeria IS better than those countries, a bigger country with a bigger economy means more opportunities. In Lagos, you can find plenty of common people from every West African country coming here to find work.

The EU is just saying that while their institutions and businesses are making it easier for corrupt Nigerians to take their money to Europe or America. They're hypocrites in the fullest sense of the word. The resources of Nigeria is controlled by Western multinationals who reap the majority of the profits and leaves the rest to their corrupt government stooges here in Nigeria.

Nigeria's leaders are generally pretty bad, but look who's propping them up? The Westerners.

Rossikk: The EU should ask their member, Britain, what she did with all the monies earned from Nigerian exports from 1897 to 1960. If that money had been used to develop Nigeria rather than embezzled and used to develop England, Nigeria would have been as fully developed as South Africa at independence, and we wouldn't be having this conversation. So let them start with their own thievery. We are poor today because we are playing catch up, struggling to build things that should have been built 100 years ago.

Rossikk: It is not being colonised that is the issue. The issue is what did the colonialists DO in the respective nations they colonised? In SOME countries they built infrastructure, schools, and created functional institutions which went on to serve those nations after independence. In OTHERS, especially the BLACK nations, all they did was loot, loot, loot and loot. In Nigeria, despite exporting hundreds of billions in today's money worth of resources from 1897 to 1960 they only built ONE university college, not even a full fledged uni. In 63 years of rule. As for roads, power etc, they did virtually nothing. In 1960, after 63 years of British rule, we generated 270 megawatts of electricity. 95 percent of Nigerians had no access to electricity. There was no national grid. Rail. Oh they built a line from Kano to the southern ports for ONE reason, ie to evacuate our resources. At independence, we were just a bush. Today we have advanced a lot and are still advancing, thanks to African rule. The EU can take their 'concern' for our 'plight' and stick it up their round holes.


Just stop here and listen to what the other writer said, do you know that the only good amenities you are still using in Nigeria today are the ones left by the British? take for an example the good buildings left by the British were destroyed by your fellow Nigerians, eg, NET building during Shagari, Defence building during IBB/Abacha, first Niger head bridge during Gowon, Electricity was far better during the Colonial era than after independence. etc. British might be dubious but Nigerian rulers are more useless than uselessness.

All the countries that began the race after Nigeria are billions of miles far away ahead of Nigeria, while you are here still here blaming the colonial masters. After all you told them to go that you can manage/govern yourselves, where are we today?

The nigerian masses are mentally lazy cos of sentiments. I say it n repeat it, when a house is divided an evil genius rigmarolls every entity in that house n makes fool of them all. For the leaders manipulating the masses as the like has been easy cos of this. Solutions to our proplem is simple but the masses has to demand n stand for it in pureness of heart n fairness to all. One of the ways to develop nigeria is decentralizing the centre n MORE AUTONOMY TO THE REGIONS TO DEVELOP EACH AT ITS PACE. But many 'll not support it cos they fear losing what they 'll grab at the centre, thereby allowing us impoverish with the trouble laden centre. Less power to the centre, more autonomy to the regions, 'll make an igbo man hold his region n states accountable with the leaders of his region telling him they were marginalised by the centre. An hausa man grow at his pace n not blame others for deceiving him or venting his anger on anyone he feels. It'll make a yoruba man live as calm as he wants n develop what he has. But if we comtinue as we are, our progress 'll only happen by miracle. Our present structure encourages selfishness n greed. God bless Nigeria

We believe you hate our corruption because it is making you far too rich, and we know you hate too much riches, as shown by your history of invading countries only for the purposes of spreading the good news of Jesus Christ and his kingdom. As for our trillions which you hold? It's all yours! Don't worry about it massa! Afterall stolen money that arrives in your soft white hands is automatically cleansed of all its history, by the special grace of Jesus and your white Pope''.

Economy of Nigeria From Wikipedia

GDP $450.5 billion (2012 est.) (PPP; 30th)
GDP per capita $2,700 (2012 est.)
Below poverty line 45% (2010 est.)
Credit rating Standard & Poor's:[3]

Nigeria is a middle income, mixed economy and emerging market, with expanding financial, service, communications, and entertainment sectors. It is ranked 30th in the world in terms of GDP (PPP) as of 2011, and its emergent, though currently underperforming manufacturing sector is the third-largest on the continent, producing a large proportion of goods and services for the West African region.

Economy of Ghana From Wikipedia


Statistics
GDP $89.509 billion
GDP per capita $3,256.848 (2012 est.)
below poverty line 27% (2011 est.)

Credit rating Standard & Poor's:[8]
B+ (Domestic)

BB+ (T&C Assessment)
Outlook: Stable[9]
Fitch:[10]
BBB+
Outlook: Stable

The economy of Ghana, Africa, has a diverse and rich resource base, and as such, has one of the highest GDP per capita in Africa. Ghana is one of the top–ten fastest growing economies in the world, and the fastest growing economy in Africa. Gold, timber, cocoa, diamond, bauxite, manganese, and many other exports are major sources of foreign exchange.[11]

An oilfield which is reported to contain up to 3 billion barrels (480×10^6 m3) of light oil was discovered in 2007.[12] Oil exploration is ongoing and, the amount of oil continues to increase.[13]

The domestic economy revolves around services, which accounts for 50% of GDP and employs 28% of the work force. On the negative side, stalled public sector wage, government wage increases and lack of moves towards economic industrialization have led to continued inflationary deficit financing, depreciation of the Cedi, and rising public discontent with Ghana's austerity measures. Furthermore, according to the World Bank, Ghana's per capita income has barely doubled over the past 45 years.[14] Even so, Ghana remains one of the more economically sound countries in all of Africa.

Are you for real? How can you even say that? Nigeria makes more money in one year now than the brits ever stole pre-Independence so why has our leader not used those huge amounts of money to develop Nigeria? This is the same excuse many Africans make but they fail to realize that the problems of their countries are mainly of their own doing.

Below is the picture of a Borno state's politician son sitting on raw cash up to the amount of N100 Million.Is he also British or is it the British that asked his father to steal all that money and horde it in their house?

Is the British that instructs our governors, senators , ministers and president to embezzle government funds and store them in offshore accounts?

Is it the British who instructed Nigerian Governors to use public funds to purchase private jets or buy cars for tuface wife?

Rossik i thought you were a genuine patriotic Nigerian but i am starting to wonder if you are not a Government agent planted here to promote Jonathan's Government. I appreciate your threads which shows pictures of nice places in Nigeria but you will do great damage to your reputation if you continue to peddle lies like unsincere9gerian and his minions.

The same South Africa you are comparing Nigeria has more intelligent leaders than Nigeria. In 2010 ,South Africa suffered minor power problems because their population had grown substantially and their grid was not able to cater for everyone. What did the South African Government do? They built new power plants and set up a program to regulate power usage. Today the power is still on 24 hours a day without a single glitch .Mind you SA makes way less than Nigeria daily.

They did not set up hundred committees or change power ministers like Nigerians. The president simply ordered that new power plants be built and they are being built, no long stories. Yes it is that simple if you have good and intelligent leaders. Providing power for a nation does not require rockets scientist just patriotic and competent people.

So why can’t Nigeria set aside say $20 billion dollar from the money it makes annually to build new coal plant, dam or nuclear plants? Is it the British who is holding us from doing so? Instead we are privatising it and building IPP which will still not be sufficient as they are small scale IPPs.

Jonathan and Nigerian leaders are brain dead. They make simple problems look like complex scientific problems because they are not intelligent or patriotic.I dare say that if had was in power Nigeria will be free of power outages within 18 months. The newly dredged river Niger alone can provide a brand new dam with ship lift like the one in china. We have enough shoreline to build one or two nuclear plants and Niger our neighbor country to the north with supply us with uranium .The northern part of Nigeria is home to a large desert which can easily house massive solar panel plants that will add more power to the grid.

If I was president , I will trim my budget ,cut down Govt officials salaries by 80% and set aside at least $20 billion dollars yearly to pay for these power projects. Within 6 years of my presidency Nigeria will be fully lit for 24 daily.

Enough of blaming the west for everything. Be honest ,man up and admit that we bleeped ourselves up. The same Britain you are talking about is where Nigerians are flocking to for a better life.Since the brits left Nigeria has earned over $600 billion.So pray tell what our leaders have done with that $600 billion to play catch up? Are you saying we not must fix our country because the brits colonized and did not fix our country?

You are the one spewing beer parlour arguments. He has solid points in his post.

Meanwhile i see you have avoided responding to my economic comparism betw Ghana and nigeria in my post above...

I ve always said that if govt must use sycophants and apologists to try and brainwash us into believeing they re doing anything, they should @ least use intelligent sycophants...

Finishing your watery arguments were just too easy...

Do u have a university certificate @ all?


You talk like you are high on cheap drugs! smh

Not sure what hole you sneaked out of to infest this thread, slaveboy. Why don't you sneak back in there, and while you're at it, buy a padlock for your lips and a whip for your back. Massa needs his implements. Oh, and we call them university degrees, not 'university certificates'. School dropout pretending to know.

LMAO!

Guy...you just took dullness to the next freaking level!

Call it degree, call it certificate, its same. dumbskull! You can even call it degree certificate. I wonder how u can actually think a degree can exist without evidence of a certificate.

Meanwhile, i noticed you couldnt attack the substantive arguments since it was beyond your intellectual capacity, you were busy spewing words like poo from arsse(apology to spartacus).


I understand you sha. Since you dont have answers to the intellectual posers thrown at you, you resort to thuggery and other miscreant-like abuses.

Your name "Rossikk" says a lot bout you anyways.

Just be warned...steer clear of intellectual arguments, its not your thing. B.astard.
