Insulting others without provocation is not a sign of frustration, at least not to me...it is more like me identifying an empty noise maker who has nothing upstairs but felt like talking because he sees other people talk and get replied instantly on NL...funny enough you have no idea and in depth understanding of the derisive comparism you made....

You felt like bringing up Rwanda for comparism because you've seen other ignorant entity like yourself on NL do the same....

Free advice don't copy otherside..what Suits A might not suit B.

Insulting others without provocation is definitely a sign of frustration. It's also sign that u have run out of things to say. In most of posts, ur comments haven't even been about d topic cos u have little or nothing to say about d topic yet every opportunity u get, u say "ignorant" as if u just learnt d word.

U just brought up d issue of Rwanda here but u couldn't debunk my points I made about d country. With each post u make filled with personal attacks, u just corroborate my point that u have strictly run out of things to say

Do u no why I like your write up? I like it because u didn't debunk what I said. With everything u wrote, with all d plenty grammar, there's no where u provided info that debunked what I said. All u did was to corroborate d point i made. So am not really concerned with d personal connotations in ur post. Like I said u have run out of things to say

Now you've resorted to silly reverse psychology...what i said does not in any way conform to the nonsense you said...This is how we know we've silenced empty noise makers...

When I asked a full grown man like you how Rwanda is perceived to be greater than Nigeria by you, below is what a full grown adult like you wrote


Rwanda is much more organised than Nigeria with better accountability from govt institutions. Rwanda is a country with less corruption than Nigeria. Nigeria may have a higher GDP than Rwanda but this is obviously because of oil. Take oil out of Nigeria, what else does Nigeria have?


Do you even know a more corrupt nation can be by far better than a far less corrupt nation in every manner of ramifications..some countries can naturally thrive on the back of corruption by putting forward great economic reforms and yet they still hold the tittle of one of the world most corrupt countries.... Nigeria is one of those countries..

On the global corruption index Kenya is more corrupt than Nigeria but I tell you Kenya is by far more developed than Rwanda even you check so many economic stats...
South Africa is also another country that is more corrupt than Rwanda but I tell you there is no room for comparism between both countries...one is an upper middle income economy while the other is still a very backward village Lying to the rest of the world that it has gotten better and should be envied across the continent when infact it is not even among the lower middle income economies of the african continent...and according to United Nations it is still regarded as an LDC(Least developing countries) and will stay that way even up untill 2025..

Where's d reverse psychology? Did u debunk what I said in d post u are referring? No u didn't. U were just going round in circles thinking u were insulting me but u were in actual fact corroborating my points.

Bros, Kenya isn't more corrupt than Nigeria. Pls get ur facts right. With regards to corruption in Rwanda and d fact that there's more corruption in SA and Nigeria and they are still richer than Rwanda still takes u back to d resources and wealth of d nations.

Nigeria and SA have more resources than Rwanda hence despite their higher level of corruption, they are still richer. That's y I said "take oil out of Nigeria and see what happens". I thought that as an economics guru, u would understand this more.

I see you are not ready to learn

Kenya is more corrupt than Nigeria and it has always been that way...check the global corruption index to confirm..

Being resources_less doesn't mean a country should perform less...Japan, Singapore, South Korea are also resources-less countries, look where that are today and see where Nigeria and the rest of the super resource rich endowed continent of Africa is ..
That is why I earlier mentioned strategic economic reform"...This Asian countries grew on the back of this seeing that there were not privileged enough to be resource rich and trade in this resources..after world war 2 Japan was completely devastated and had nothing to fall back on..there were time Nigeria was far better than China, Saudi Arabia, Singapore but can the same be said today...Not having resources is not an excuse... Being run rich to me is just an added advantage and a perfect way to be lazy and Skip all the hard work it takes toward becoming great and still become great if put into good use,....

U don't even no and u want to teach. Y don't u begin by teaching urself first?

D last time Kenya was said to be more corrupt than Nigeria was 2016. Since then, its been Nigeria all d way.

According to u:

"Not having resources is not an excuse... "

If this is so, then y is what d west did to Africa now an excuse? What did Japan and Singapore that u mentioned do that Nigeria isn't doing? Part of it is what Rwanda is doing hence my previous quote which u despised:

Kenya has always been more corrupt than Nigeria or of recent ranked on the same position..

What the west did to Africa and his currently still doing to Africa is highly appalling...To me it is a out racism, paranoia of black race rise, global dominance.....
I think between the 19th century and 20th century it was the EU controlling the world hence the global colonization that was perpetuated by countries like Germany, France ,UK....After the world war America took over by forcefully instilling fear In The minds of so many countries around the world with their nuclear power, warheads which they used in devastating a certain country (I can't remember the name)...out of this fear most countries succumb to the US like puppets..even the great EU...They used their demonic organisation IMF/world bank to penetrate global politics and economies and have a sit at top global discussions by preying on the fears they've instilled in this countries.. and that is why they remain the world super today which is now getting precarious and will soon be returned to China as she is catching up so fast....

Wonder no more why US and China has been on a trade war over dominance on the continent of Africa...there has to be some special attached, that would make the world two biggest economy enter an economic wars despite the massive negative effect it has on their Economy...America is expected to go into a very deep recession in 2020 because of this war and yet she still insist on this economic war...surely there is something in it for them .

I won't go further explained that of Japan and Singapore..if you can understand the normal Basic economic conversation we have been having how much more this one that is a little bit more complex than the former..


"Rwanda is much more organised than Nigeria with better accountability from govt institutions. Rwanda is a country with less corruption than Nigeria. Take oil out of Nigeria, what else does Nigeria have


And to answer the bolded again I would say you are still trying to hide your face by running in circles..when I asked you why you perceived Rwanda a greater nation than Nigeria you replied me with three sentences and each sentence you ended with a full stop which means that was the end of you point..Don't try tie-ing your second sentence to the last one...there is a clear boundary which you drew, and that is the full stop which you included exist there...


And even if I dumb down to your level and take your reply as a joint one you are still wrong cos I will refer you to what I said earlier which being "resources-less is not an excuse..

U guys can sit there and be blaming d west for Africa's backwardness and still be expecting that with such a mindset Africa will suddenly catch up with Europe and d US

I don't have time to response to some of your arguments. Just to make this straight to you. No one says we are waiting for downfall of any nations. It's a simple economic principle. Ford Motors, an American company shut down some of its plants in the United States and moved to China. Then, exports it cars back to US. Apple moved some of its productions to China then rẹ-export back to the US. Microsoft currently outsourcing part of its R&grin in China etc. It's a simple process of north/south - south/north magnetic principle. Something is pushing them out why something somewhere is attracting them in.

All these decisions are made to make profits and you should take your time and read more to understand our points. The other man explains my point of view very well, yet you still misinterpreted it to downfall of other nations.

I know this because I remember you being just as patriotic and positive about the country whilst President GEJ was in charge.

Whilst reading your post I asked myself, who is this person being so positive and optimistic? I had a little smile to myself when I saw your moniker. Whilst I don't always agree with you or your methods, I completely respect and appreciate your views for reasons I mentioned earlier.

On the subject matter, I was not even aware that we are already producing any steel in the country, talk less of 1.2 million tons per annum.

We need more patriots like Rossikk to help us realise or remember that we are greater than we are generally led to believe by our corrupted local media and international news agencies.

Not only that. Ajaokuta is between Russian and Nigerian government. And it seems there are areas of disagreement delaying the project completion and take off. That should be the reason why they construct similar one in Kaduna.

The president is his last visit to Russia reached agreement with Russian president to complete the remaining 2 % of the project.

You guys are making good points but I think most of you are too bullish on Nigeria's prospects.

Some of us have been hearing these since Independence. The fact is all the Asian countries that were poorer than Nigeria, even without resources, are better off today.

The same people that were painting rosy and El Dorado budgets have run Nigeria into the Poverty capital of the world.

Some of you are preaching the same prospects. We are not holding our breath waiting for Nigeria to become fourth world.

Nothing written here demonstrate Nigeria success. Those children waiting since Independence now have their own children. You want their children children to wait for empty prospects too?

You are the one praising kegame's mediocrity.....They are so many thing we can use media to hype in this country but we the citizen will still be the ones to bad mouth it ...and a foreigner will gladly deride it as his)her perception will instantly change.

Do you think citizens of Rwanda are not awAre of the media trick and silly story their president is telling whilst they are soaked in abject poverty,(check their per capita)and backwardness...No citizens of that country dare speaks against him..he is a dictator...

If you respect yourself people will always respect you...The fact that he build a 2km road today and calls media from around the globe to hype it whilst forcefully oppressing the people from speaking about the numerous ills he is concealing to make the country look like it has emerged is appalling to say the least...if the citizens are stopped from speaking their minds and the president is busy telling the world Rwanda has changed since the 2000 genocidal incident to become an enviable African country surely you will believe cos no one is coming out to say otherwise..but here in NIGERIA, at least to an extent there is freedom of speech...A govt can build a 125km road today and you will have citizens run out to criticize the country to make the leaders not to feel relaxed..during this process harsh and hateful words are released and a foreigner reading this instantly changes his perception of the country despite the amazing thing he must have seen in the media....

I tell you outside the city centre of Kigali which I doubt is even up to 10kmsq the rest of Kigali and Rwanda at large is very primitive, poor and underdeveloped village with so many rural settlement (the inhabitants)made to never see what a bituminous tarred road look like.....

Its not that u don't have time to answer. U do. All these u have said, which time did u use? There are questions I asked based on ur postulation about ageing population and debt. These are d questions:

"What has been d youth population of Nigeria since 1960 compared to Japan, Germany & Norway that u are mentioning? Y is nigeria still not better than them? What has been Nigerias debt since 1960 compared to Japan, Norway and Germany? Y is Nigeria not yet better?"

I thought u will use ur "economic principles" to answer these questions. U are talking about. Ford, Microsoft and Apple have moved to China. Its d same way several fashion companies have factories in Bangladesh. Of course, profit is d main motivating factor. So u still doesn't say why Nigeria will be better than Japan, Germany and Norway in d future

Let me take out a piece of your post and show u how little u made urself. That's y I said u didn't say anything of significant importance:

"Abuja had phase 1 of her light rail completed last year and the second just got completed or almost completed...how many Nigerians have you seen praise this even if it is in their minds"

How did u determine that Nigerians didnt praise d govt for completing this project? Why should people "praise" govt for doing its job? U talked about "not seeing Nigerians praising..." . how do u "see" Nigerians praising govt? How is it done? Do u have access to d minds of 200m nigerians that u no that they didnt "praise govt" for d light rail? Where does d praise take place? D light rails in SA and Ethiopia, did u "see" them praising their govts because of light rail?

Also:

"but if they travel to a neighbouring African country to see the same infastructure and it is absent in Nigeria , they still be the first people to criticize the govt for not putting such infastructures in places whilst a small African country have such...."

But if Nigeria doesn't have such infrastructure that u talking about, how do u now want Nigeria to overcome d west? U talking about not having anything upstairs and with each post u make, u seem to give a good description of urself with insults. U have a weird way of personally demonstrating d characteristics of d insults u throw my way.

What's wrong with criticism? If Nigeria lacks certain things and d people complain about it, what crime have they committed? Is d govt not meant to serve d people or do u think govt is there for itself? What's ur complain? I don't get it

Mandesz:

u don't understand this message. firstly, ajaokuta is not in Kaduna but in kogi state. the steel coy is one of the largest into world that can sustain Nigeria non-oil economy on it's own. the coy was not mismanaged as u claimed but has not been completed since the take off in 1967 by Gowon. virtually every administration promised to complete the project but promise failed. Now, I said it's because it was located in kogi or middle belt that's why successive govt never take this seriously. Kaduna is a core( I mean Hausa) northern state.
Tell me a place in the north that u can find such a gigantic project uncompleted? in fact, the present buhari govt was using Nigeria limited resources to seàrch for 'unavailable' oil in the Hausa north close to lake chad but there were màny areas oil were discovered in kogi state thàt nothing were done about them and in some that the oil were tapped.. kogi state was still not declared an oil producing state.
they're so many facts I can ànalyse for u based on experience.

Kenya has always been more corrupt than Nigeria or of recent ranked on the same position..

What the west did to Africa and his currently still doing to Africa is highly appalling...To me it is a out racism, paranoia of black race rise, global dominance.....
I think between the 19th century and 20th century it was the EU controlling the world hence the global colonization that was perpetuated by countries like Germany, France ,UK....After the world war America took over by forcefully instilling fear In The minds of so many countries around the world with their nuclear power, warheads which they used in devastating a certain country (I can't remember the name)...out of this fear most countries succumb to the US like puppets..even the great EU...They used their demonic organisation IMF/world bank to penetrate global politics and economies and have a sit at top global discussions by preying on the fears they've instilled in this countries.. and that is why they remain the world super today which is now getting precarious and will soon be returned to China as she is catching up so fast....

Wonder no more why US and China has been on a trade war over dominance on the continent of Africa...there has to be some special attached, that would make the world two biggest economy enter an economic wars despite the massive negative effect it has on their Economy...America is expected to go into a very deep recession in 2020 because of this war and yet she still insist on this economic war...surely there is something in it for them .

I won't go further explained that of Japan and Singapore..if you can understand the normal Basic economic conversation we have been having how much more this one that is a little bit more complex than the former..


"Rwanda is much more organised than Nigeria with better accountability from govt institutions. Rwanda is a country with less corruption than Nigeria. Take oil out of Nigeria, what else does Nigeria have


And to answer the bolded again I would say you are still trying to hide your face by running in circles..when I asked you why you perceived Rwanda a greater nation than Nigeria you replied me with three sentences and each sentence you ended with a full stop which means that was the end of you point..Don't try tie-ing your second sentence to the last one...there is a clear boundary which you drew, and that is the full stop which you included exist there...


And even if I dumb down to your level and take your reply as a joint one you are still wrong cos I will refer you to what I said earlier which being "resources-less is not an excuse..

Was it after second world war that America devastated "a certain country" or was it during d second world war? I don't no where u got ur information from that d US was threatening countries with nuclear weapons after d second world war. If u want to give history lessons, stick to what u no. Don't start making things up.

Look at this let's see how u are making excuses for underdevelopment and contradicting urself:

"Japan, Singapore, South Korea are also resources-less countries, look where that are today and see where Nigeria and the rest of the super resource rich endowed continent of Africa is ..."

Now if d countries u mentioned didn't use a lack of resources as an excuse, then why are u using d west as an excuse to justify d failings of Africa and then u say u want Africa to overtake d west? D only way ur theory will work is when d west falls which is what u are anticipating. As a guru textbook economist, its funny that u can't even imagine Africa being prosperous with d existence of a prosperous west. With such a mindset, how do u think Africa will make progress? And u say am ignorant. Seems my ignorance far outweighs all ur knowledge put together.

According to u:

"Wonder no more why US and China has been on a trade war over dominance on the continent of Africa..."

Which "trade war over dominance on d continent of africa?" Which year be that? Is it with this Donald trump abi d one u read in a text book? What has their trade war got to do with Africa? How did d US threaten d EU after d second world war?

Like i said b4, u have run out of things to say. Fullstop is now ur problem. Oga, debunk what I said about Rwanda and leave fullstop alone. So we can see that if your worry is about fullstop, it shows that u have actually "dumbed down" beyond my level on ur own without me needing to influence u. It comes natural for u

lexy2014:


Its not that u don't have time to answer. U do. All these u have said, which time did u use? There are questions I asked based on ur postulation about ageing population and debt. These are d questions:

"What has been d youth population of Nigeria since 1960 compared to Japan, Germany & Norway that u are mentioning? Y is nigeria still not better than them? What has been Nigerias debt since 1960 compared to Japan, Norway and Germany? Y is Nigeria not yet better?"

I thought u will use ur "economic principles" to answer these questions. U are talking about. Ford, Microsoft and Apple have moved to China. Its d same way several fashion companies have factories in Bangladesh. Of course, profit is d main motivating factor.

So u still doesn't say why Nigeria will be better than Japan, Germany and Norway in d future

I don't know your age but seems you don't comprehend easily. Let me point it out numerically;

1. Nearly all the sectors of their economies are well developed and at their peaks on the other hand, Nigeria has largely undeveloped sectors

2. They have old population while Nigeria on the other has young population.

3. They have big debts in trillions dollars despite their smaller and old population compare to Nigeria case; less than $100bn debt, 200 million and mostly young.

4. Size of Population and available resources.

I think I make this clear enough. You can read my comments again to get detail explanation.
