Harvard University Uses Nigeria As A Case Study Of A Failed African Country by mightyfacts: 11:02pm On Apr 21, 2018
Nigeria has yet again been ‘disgraced’ internationally, following an assignment Harvard University gave to its students in which Nigeria was used as a case study of a failed African country.



In a recent thesis work, the students were asked the following questions;

”Africa is growing. Seven of the the ten fastest growing economies in the world are in Africa, and the continent’s largest economies are becoming less dependent on extractive commodities. The continent’s rising middle class has demonstrated a taste for consumer goods and technological innovation, and Africa’s population-currently more than a billion people- is booming and overwhelmingly young at a time when populations in other regions are shrinking and aging.

Nigeria, sub-Saharan Africa’s largest economy, epitomizes both the promise and the problems the continent faces in the 21st century. The country had failed to thrive for its first thirty years as an independent nation, despite having a developmental head start relative to countries like China and India, as well as hundreds of billions of dollars in oil revenue.

Now, after pathbreaking reforms followed by signs of retrenchment, Nigeria’s new President faced both vast opportunity and grave challenges. Would the country flourish or founder in this new era? We will analyze key reforms in Nigeria’s economy, significant political developments, and the choices facing the country’s fast-growing private sector;

1. Why did Nigeria fail to thrive between 1960 and 1999, particularly relative to China and India?
2. How would you characterize former President Obasanjo’s legacy?
3. Are you bullish or bearish on the next * fifteen years for Nigeria? What would make you change your mind?
4. What opportunities do you see?
5. What are the challenges (and risks)

Hmmm....

Blackman stupid, naw the Whiteman stupid, naw the Black is cursed, naw the White is cursed, all Blacks are apes, naw all Whitemen are cave monkeys. grin

That's the game the devil worshiping Freemasons, who are of all races, play upon the masses of people because they know each will fight for his/her side and forget about them ruling the world. Satan rules this world and Nigeria is just one of many countries that Satan has seized with his many evil cults.

Nigeria formed in 1914 and became independent in 1960 so we are talking about the most populous nation in Africa, 180 million, is only 58 years old. grin Compared to America which is over 242 years old since 1776 as their recorded beginning but America as a colony is much older. Its an unfair comparison really. angry

I wouldn't pay this any mind.
