My profession has made me travel around various countries as well as carry out comparative analytics between sectors of various countries.

My earlier statement that caused this heat here was saying; Brazil is a Latin version of Nigeria & if Nigeria was to be viewed from a Latino perspective, you would get Brazil.

Please take note I made a comparison of Nigeria's potential to Brazil's current level, based on similar figures both countries have. I didn't not make a direct comparison of ranking between the two countries.

No 1: Population: Nigeria and Brazil have similar population figures with Brazil edging out by total population but Nigeria edging out by growth. Both countries have rather similar numbers when it comes to demographics.

No 2: Federal system of government: both Nigeria and Brazil have the same Federal system of government. with a roughly equal number of states (36 for Nigeria and 27 for Brazil) and artificially created, new capital cities (Abuja and Brasilia), which were started in the 1970s and 1960s, respectively, operate as special federal districts, and have rapidly grown to become major cities. The architecture of both cities suffers from their young age and the uninspired design influences of their times

How the political atmosphere of both countries align
No 3: In Brazil powerful state governors control jobs and government funds and use this power to dominate the legislative branch, not only the legislatures of their own states but also the members of their state delegations to the national Congress. Using the funds doled out to them by the governors, Brazilian legislators maintain their power and influence in a political culture known as "clientelism," similar to the style of old-fashioned political bosses in American cities. Political parties are relatively weak, and legislators maintain themselves in office by currying favor with their governors... in Nigeria we all know what godfatherism means in the political landscape so it's basically "clientelism and godfatherism" in the two countries.

As for location advantages, I never implied that Other countries support Brazil, I meant Brazil has a lot of Alliances within the region that has contributed to progressive development.

So please I didn't say Brazil and Nigeria were of the same ranking, however due to similar figures Nigeria can catch up with Brazil because it is attainable.
I completely agree with the above points. We are all here to learn. Thank u

You people are loosing touch with reality. Europeans are increasinly becoming xenophobic. I will advise you Op to go to Brazil where you would do your tailoring and still have peace of mind. The only issue with brazil is drug crime. Sweden is better but are you ready to face microagressions and xenophobic policies. Infact denmark has passed a law that immigrants should go back to their country.
