modextus: Nigeria has no reason to be poor —EU
|Re: Nigeria Has No Reason To Be Poor — EU by hiuser: 5:36pm On May 03, 2013|
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.
Ehhhhmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!! Do you have me? PEOPLE ARE CRIMINALS!!!! EUROPE GO TO AMERICAS!!

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.
LOOOK THEY ARE NOT SEEING YOU!!

where do you sh!!t these kinda opinion anyways, you are playing catch up u said that is wrong, the infrastructures and administrative system left behind were solid till we mismanaged them.
an eg is this; the railway system, the british connected the major and productive cities in Nigeria with rails, since they left, we have not been able to consolidate them and expanding rather we left them to rot.
you can equally argue that it has trade interest for them, thats correct but what infrastructure flies our trade interest lately?
another fact that will interest you is the earnings of this country since 1960, we have earned more money than any other developing nation till date, our earnings from 1960 till date is enough to put the most populous black nation in the world on the map.
ask yourself; how much did it cost to put dubai on the map? before you argue that dubai is small, how many small dubais do we have in our big Nigeria?
even a blind bat agrees that mismanagement and insincerity of purpose in leadership is the reason Nigeria is still struggling with the basics.

That is why we have to stop blaming the EU, America and colonisation. When we do that, we can search deep in our heart and realise we are the problem. When we keep on blaming others, we are only giving the leaders an excuse to continue doing what they are doing.
In so doing, we are also telling ourselves and the next generation that corruption, bribery and all the vices that go on in the country are ok. There is no country in the world that is free of corruption, but some are just so gross. Some like Nigeria.
When we stop blaming others, we will start taking action. Until then, it will be almost impossible to make a difference. We have a country where a few are stupendously rich and the majority are poor or managing to go through life daily.

And keep on making excuses for those who are robbing your country dry. Keep on blaming the west and Nigeria will change for better. And who knows, maybe you are a part of the people keeping the country the way it is because it benefits you and is to the disadvantage of millions.
Keep on blaming the other and exonerate yourself, the trick has been working. Dumb down the masses and make all of them blame the west and take the attention away from you to operate freely.
|Re: Nigeria Has No Reason To Be Poor — EU by jess5(f): 9:49pm On Jun 16, 2013|
Of course, Nigeria is the most developed country among all developing countries. Keep on deluding yourself.
|Re: Nigeria Has No Reason To Be Poor — EU by jess5(f): 9:54pm On Jun 16, 2013|
Like i have said before, keep on deceiving yourself. Keep on blaming the west while you keep on making more money without improving the lives of the citizens.

Sometimes, lack of progress in some of the African countries is due to too much parliamentarianism. To make a road it has to go through the parliament and pass through many levels because nobody wants to take the authority and take the responsibility and act. Everything is postponed or there is a sort of tendency to procrastinate. Things never move. So, a strong leader is essential.
