While the rest of the world are trying figure out a practical way of combating the novel corona virus, Senegal has miraculously developed a covid19 test kit that cost approximately $1. Thats right! You read well, $1.

This is in line with their strategy of testing their total population and fishing out those who are infected. The test kit is conducting by taking blood and saliva samples of patients and due to its low cost of production there is plenty of kits to go round.

They've also created a ventilator that cost approximately $60 through the aid of 3d printing. It interesting to not that the average ventilator cost $15000.

Senegal has only 2 casualties from their over 600 cases and they've used a combinaton of antimalarial drugs to combat this illness.

If our leaders can stop looting funds abroad and invest locally, sure there's hope in Africa.

I have started a new prayer point

"God should liberate Nigerian from bad leaders"
IsNor as if it's too much work for God but it is an impossible future tense.

The thing Dey shock am, He is patiently waiting to see more of our ineptitude

EDITED: some of you quoting me to say we don’t need God, should tell us how can a country so blessed with so much mineral resources and Human Resources remain in dark age?

We all claim to be smart and bold on the internet but cum next election they’ll still play us all. Who is fooling who? grin

We are fooling ourself if we think we will wake up one morning to meet Nigerian become Yankee. Tinubu’s yet unborn great great great grand son will rule Lagos one day make em carry e share for the family business. It will continue that way till motor finally park up. grin

You that is reading this post, forget your humility right now, when you make it to that government house, story go change;

“Who is your bro?” grin
“Abeg give them three three cup of derica make them dey go house”

We need God in our heart, our ways nor pure. We are openly abusing the freewill God gave us.

Shame to Nigeria. Our leaders should bury their faces in shame now. We are blessed with wealth and enough mineral resources more than every African counties.

Nigeria have the highest number of professors, universities, graduates and population in Africa.

We remain Giant of Africa in the book, with nothing to show for it.

I am not surprised that we are where we are, a man that did not pass common WAEC is the president presiding over professors, doctors and technocrats in different fields.

The president that claim to be an army general cannot even assure security or win the fight against insurgency.

I weep for this country.

People are dying massively in Kano and our leaders are keeping a deaf here and handling it with kids glove. As we speak there is no COVID-19 testing center in kano - a state with average population of 15 million people.

In my next world, I won't dare to pass through Nigeria.

Instead of FG to be looking inward, they are expecting China and other foreign govt to help them.

I once mentioned here that government should place testing centers in all local govt and one imp here was insulting me telling me its not possible. I wish that person would see this thread

Commendable...

NCDC reach out... $1 is about N450. Seek for partnership so that the whole Nigeria can be tested.

Also reach out to Madagascar for their herbal preventive and curative drug.

Now that's the real Giant in West Africa.
The 15000 USD ventilators most western countries use is mostly overpriced, u see eh the healthcare systems of the west is so monetized for maximum profit for the Big Pharmaceutical companies and Hospitals. And that's why their countries will bleed out cash to afford more units for patients.

Africa is its only hope in this precarious period.
I am beyond proud that individual African nations like Senegal have taken the lead and I expect more to follow.


The sad thing is that Nigerians given the right opportunities and foundations can lead the continent effectively against this scourge but the entire country CHOOSE TO BE LED BY FOOLS

Whoever it was that coined and named Nigeria the "Giant of Africa" seriously needs to tender an unreserved apology to the rest of Africa. A giant that needs smaller ones to set the pace and race ahead of it, is that one a giant? If it is,it must be a bat-blinded giant, who only operates in darkness. And you and I know that whatever is done in the dark (secret) benefits only the perpetrators or a select few. What are those things done in the dark? They include:
Corruption
Stealing
Ritual Killings
Herdsmen Killings
Terrorist Killings
Nepotism in Public Service
Appointments Without Merit to mention but a few.
Are these things not present with us?
We are nothing but the "Africa Giant Snail", that's an apt description of us as a country.

Those who should be doing this in Nigeria are either part of the government looting the country dry or part of the masses being looted dry.

If this is true, then I weep for Nigeria. We have lots of smart people here, why can't government urgently fund them to begin research and development into many of the things we spend billions of dollars to purchase from foreign companies.
