Rubbish

Occupation: stolen funda and under payment of taxes.
If you know the kind of corrupt practices that brought these people there you will marvel.
For eg Dangote et al buys dollars at CBN rate in the guise of importation of raw materials. They won't use all. They sell them at black market price. Sanusi once lamented about that.

Richest Man in Africa = Nigerian
Richest Woman in Africa = Nigerian.
Yet some people would say Nigeria is not a fertile land.
Stop complaining, stop seeking for asylum. Prosperity doesn't come from abroad.

The Tribalist, nobody will suffer sir. Wealth creation is based on principles that transcend borders and it is an art ,not known by all.If most nigerians are given #1billion today, in five years time, they won't worth #5million again because they aren't grounded in the art of wealth creation.

Your assertion is very wrong. When you get to know successful business men is not actually when they started business.

Although, these people may be corrupt but corruption alone can't sustain your business.... Many Nigerians may be more corrupt than these yet they can't manage a Billion naira worth of investment.
