The Problem Of Africa Is Nigeria by APCLyingBastard: 9:07pm On May 23
Africa, is an incredibly rich continent, so rich, it boggles the mind why there's so much poverty there..

The mind may indeed be boggled, the soul however isn't and why?

Africa's problems, like practically all problems, are metaphysical in essence and how so?

The problem of Africa is Nigeria..

As goes the country, so too the continent. If it develops beneficially, so too the continent, and if it does not, so too the continent and why?

Nigeria is the biggest negroid country on earth, but more than that, it's tremendously blessed with natural riches and more critically, Nigerians travel a lot, you'll find them in substantial numbers in every region of earth, they're natural born travelers..

But here's the thing, charity begins at home, meaning that what you haven't learned or imbibed at home, you can't export abroad..

This isn't strictly true however, as Nigeria has "exported", usually involuntarily, the cream of its talent crop..

Involuntarily for the country, voluntarily for the "exports" who sought other climes where they may thrive existentially..

Most went to the Americas, specifically north, and to Europe, specifically west..

This, the mass emigration of neurons, has resulted in an environment teeming with physical riches, while bereft of intellectual wealth to transform riches into prosperity..

And thus is Africa hobbled by the irresponsibility of Nigeria..

But what is Nigeria's problem beyond the observation that brainwaves don't thrive there?

Ha, this is the complex conundrum..

Nigeria has never been the same after its civil war in the 60s of the last century..

Folks in the East hate those in the North reciprocally, those in the West are suspicious of the North reciprocally..

Those in the middle are caught in a vise between the hating and suspicious others and crucially, they in the middle are the breadbasket of the country..

Not that the others are not engaged in agriculture, but that the Middle has the most fertile soil..

The economic problem, is a lack of infrastructure to transform fertile soil into value added products..

The dependence on a single resource, oil, for foreign earnings, has withered the erstwhile capacities of other potential sources of earnings..

That dependence has engendered rent seeking, corruption, suppression, marginalization, domination, destabilization, and most egregiously, indolence amongst the governing elites..

The country, while claiming to be a federalized republic, is anything but..

The federating units battle the federal government for republican autonomy while resisting according the same rights to their constituent localities..

This schizophrenic rigidity has collapsed the civic ethos of the nation, as every political jobber or opportunist now clamor for the spoils of political office, either in the center where practically all the fiscal power resides, or the state capitols where residual fiscal power resides, ignoring the constituent localities that require good governance..

Concisely, the economic order of the country is top heavy, bottom deprived..

The political order is similar, with the attendant deleterious effect that governance, as in largesse distribution, is for sale..

Worse, the country is united in nothing but name and paradoxically, true unity only arises, when their national sports teams, specifically soccer teams, which ironically are generally reflective of the populace, is engaged in international competitions..

This reveals then, that the average citizens, despite their myriad differences, are capable of unity so where arises the problem then?

From the status quo of political and economic lopsidedness are who sow divisions and dussensions..

The strengths of the country are thus..

The Eastern parts are generally industrious, the Northern parts, generally entrepreneurial, the Western parts, generally contemplative and intellectual, and the Middle parts, generally adventurous..

Generally being the key word, considering that admixtures of the traits can be found in all the country's regions..

But what really hobbles the country, is in the social economy due to the fact that the country is generally divided between Muslims in the Northern parts, and Christians in the Southern parts..

The failures of the country's leadership has to do with inability or insincerity in managing the heterogeneous cultures resident in the country and there are lots of them, religion being just one component..

The most probable solution we can discern, is neither the American style Republicanism currently being claimed to be in effect, which it's not, or the erstwhile parliamentary system it practiced, which unraveled in civil war, but a hybrid system that looks inwards to its diverse cultural governing systems and outwards to efficient governing models..

In that case, a country with similar combination would be Russia, especially with its revamped constitution which distributes and balances power and responsibilities amongst all governing apparatus, at the national, regional, and local levels, with the national apparatus acting as referee, guide, and director of national momentum..

This way, performers can be cogently identified from mediocres and thus, challenges and weaknesses can be cogently revealed, and appropriate measures applied harmoniously..

Another benefit of that, is that instead of deterioration engendered by SPOF (Single Point of Failure..) governance model, is the resilience acquired through the thriving of performing parts of the country and why is this a benefit?

Because energy to fix undetperforming parts, can be sourced harmoniously from the healthy parts..

And when the governance and developmental model is demonstrated as harmoniously efficient, then when Nigerians travel abroad as is their imperative to other parts of Africa, they can export charity and with it, the cross cultural fertilization of economic and social development..

Via osmosis..

Concisely, Nigeria cannot give what she doesn't possess and neither can she obtain what she needs, without reality acknowledgement, recalibration to harmonious development and most critically, the creation of environments that instead of involuntarily exporting talents, attractively imports talent..

If they can do that, then Africa has a fighting chance but are the governing elites capable of recalibration?

That question, is left for them to answer as the paradigm transition speeds up, with consequences or rewards..

As they choose..

It’s true, unity is possible if the regions can unite as one country for soccer then they should be able to have a united front for a better Nigeria as well. But we all know some regions don’t want a better Nigeria.

As a matter of fact, their self hate is so deep, they can’t wait to denounce their heritage. They call their fathersland a zoo. They are well known scammers, audio developers, bunch of whiners and nogooders. They do not want a better country, they want to wallow in filth cause they’re pigs.

I agree the write-up is goofy and illogical. I do not know if the author implies that if Nigeria disintegrates, Africa shall disintegrate too. I have found out the problem of Africa lies with Africans. Africans wear inferior mentality hence cannot think logically. They alien to critical thinking and fall prey to liberal wings of political class in USA and Europe. Due to inferior mentality, goofy Africans are more attracted to the liberal wings who cunningly smile at them than conservatives who would want them to put a mind into the business of the day an leave the laugh matter to the jackass.

Nigeria is too far gone. There are those that think they come from a zoo and those that still have pride in where they come from.

It is impossible to reconcile and reconnect the differences. They have to stay apart, retreat to their default status before they can respect one another again.

Every one is looking for opportunity to loot Nigeria to Death

I think the op is trying to point at the Nigerian Influence on the African States. I think Nigeria is the most influential African Nation in the world, the most gifted set of Blacks in the Universe. Aside the Nigerian population and natural resources, I think Nigerians are the most gifted intellectual beings in Africa. Throw Nigerians in conducive environments and watch his inherent qualities explode.

Back to your valid point of "inferior mentality" of Africans. No doubt, Africans are suffering from what I call "Retrogressive Fundamental Mindset". The African mind was programmed to operate in a backward manner. A fearful mindset, a mind afraid of the future, a mind that fears the unknown, a mind that is afraid to progress.

I think the African Mindset is as a Consequence of the Slave Trade in the past. For example, If you want to drive the calmest person crazy, lock him up in a very dark dungeon for 2 months and see what becomes of him. If you want to turn an honest child to a thief, accuse him of stealing several times and see him become a real thief. There is more to why Africans are the way we are, unfortunately, history doesn't favor us.

If you study the black man well, you'll discover Black Africans aren't the only ones living with inferior mentality. Blacks all around the world have a compound problem of inferior mentality.

So my conclusion is, in other to get Africans/Blacks back to critical thinking, there must be an African Nation that spearhead the change and Nigeria have all it takes to lead the Black Nations back to the forefront.
If the most intellectual Black people fail to take responsibility of steering Africa back to Greatness, we might have to wait a long time on the other side before witnessing the African Renaissance.

I think that's your personal belief. I'm a youth & am ready for change.

I got other mofos giving their all to reflect lasting change in Nigeria & Africa.

So, its a personal decision to be a vessel of change.

Meanwhile the change we need is not necessarilly political, its more a "fundamental radicalized change".

Its a long stretch, but Nigerians are who they are because they have almost zero role models and good leaders.

The slim chance Nigeria can turn around is because Nigerians are like sheep and have herd mentality. Give them a bad leader, they will follow him. Provide good honest leadership while eliminating the serpents that will want to sway them away from the light and things may turn around.

Nigerians are very easy to govern. If they weren't, they would have been up in arms and pitchforks knocking on the gates of Aso Rock.

Maybe in the south where they all see themselves as equals and do everything in their power to pull each other down.

But consider, that these same southerners will do anything to worship and slave for a northern president.

Obasanjo and GEJ are examples of how southern Nigerians abhor their own.

Abacha and Buhari are good examples of how southerners worship their slave masters.

Nigeria is the greatest country that never was. Nigeria pre-1960 under British rule is better than Nigeria in 2020 under Nigerian rule.

Nigeria is 60 years behind in development and will we overcome? Can we overcome? Do we even want to overcome?

If Europe had half the resources Africa has, they would have electrifying fences around their borders and will not let anyone in.
