1. The Netherlands is 22 times smaller than Nigeria.
2. They have 17 million people living there. 3. There are 6 states in Nigeria bigger than the Netherlands and Niger state is almost double in size.
That small the country is.

4. They feed themselves, and last year exported over $90 billion worth of food.
5. That is about 3 times Nigeria oil revenue. Funny enough, black people used to think agriculture was their thing since they didn't produce any technology.

Many people don't realize how sorry our situation is. Before, there was no money. But today there is so much money out there that we cannot even use the money available in the world to develop Nigeria. You don't really need government money these days to develop a country. The government just need to make life easy for people with money to come and use their money to develop the country. This is a very difficult notion for African leaders to understand.

Today, African governments are the biggest enemies of their own people.

Nigeria is just too big for a black man to successfully manage, break this shithole into the different required parts and let everybody bear his father's name.

Small countries are doing great things and we (Nigeria) can't even get our acts together.
And we are supposed to be the big brother around here..

We are such a joke.

The leaders are not aliens na.

They came from among the people...

So we really have a problem

The leaders are a reflection of the people.

You might want to think that they are a wonderful but the evidence suggests that they are not.

At best they are stupid cowards who turn a blind eye to the misdeeds of their countrymen. At worst evil bullies who abuse their station when the opportunity arises.

It is something positive to think about by African leaders.

That said, the $90 billion figure stated by the op was an exageration. The correct details and statistics of the Dutch food export in 2017 are as follows:

"Meat and meat products represent nearly 12% of exports, while ornamental plants and dairy products and eggs each account for 10%. Exports of dairy and eggs, animals and meat, and oils and fats all rose sharply in 2017. Last year agricultural exports generated €44 billion for the Dutch economy"

.19 Jan 2018

$44 billion and not $90 billion.

Thanks for this piece. It is not the leaders it is the citizens, as if it's not citizens that become leaders.

Nigeria keep on celebrating 'giant of Africa' simply because we have the largest population. No power - South Africa, Egypt, Morocco, Algeria, etc have superb power supply. Justice zero - South Africa's justice system is unarguably the best in Africa.

France, Britain, Italy, Singapore, South Korea - do we come a tenth close to any of these countries despite their low population size in comparison to Nigeria? Where has developments ever been measured by the size of one's country?

The difference is that they have Human Beings there while Nigeria has bunch of monkeys and baboons.

Another difference is that they have people who try not to milk their citizens while Nigeria has monkeys called pastors draining poor people, yet chase them away when the poor people need help.

It's the QUALITY of the inhabitants of a country that makes the difference between the great and pathetic ones, in this case, between the Netherlands and Nigeria.

Just see the quality of debates that go on here.

Nigerians, quick to blame leaders. Blacks are specialists at passing blame. I have never seen any Nigerian accept responsibility for any wrongdoing. Even those caught in the very act of adultery will blame the devil. That is how our president started blaming Gaddafi and Libya for herdsmen attacks the other day !!!
