Most White People think Africa Is Slum, My Experience With A Ukrainian Guy. by Basalt(m): 10:04pm On Jan 12
During our normal 30mins break at work last night, we were gisting about the pandemic and world politics, something lead to another and one guy raised the topic of Africa mismanagement of their natural resources and dependent on western countries for their products.
I kept quiet because the guy that raised the topic was a Camerounian but surprisingly, a Ukrainian guy supported him and started talking about mismanagement of resources by African leaders. He mentioned the case of UAE that used her Oil to develop their country but Nigeria mismanage their own resources and are now among the poorest countries in the world.

I don't really like our politicians, but I was irritated by the comment poor. I told him that contrary to his comment that Nigeria is actually the richest country in Africa and even twice richer than his country Ukraine by GDP.
He doubted me and we all instantly confirmed everything online before he believed.
I ended by telling him that we all have our own problem and if his own country is as good as heaven, he wouldn't have come to Germany.
I really observe that they underate Africa a lot even all these poor eastern European countries.

GDP ??
Lol you no sabi.
Gross GDP is is the total domestic service both goods and services of a country. It is used to know the size of a country's economy.

GDP alone is useless when you want to know the if a country is doing fine or not.

Do you know the population of Nigeria and Ukraine. Nigeria is over 190million and Ukraine is over 40million. Obviously our GDP should be higher than theirs.

You check for GDP per capital income not GDP.
GDP per capital income in Lehman's term is when you divide the GDP of a country with her population, then you should know how much each individual is worth.
Nigerians GDP per capital income is $2250
Ukraine GDP per capital income is $3680

I hate to be the one to break this news to you, Ukraine better pass us. Oga no vex

But Africa is a slum na. Once you leave Lagos which is a very big slum the rest of the country is a semblance of a third world decrepit shithole zoo and it's even great now. The next 20 years will have armed thugs and robbers moving all around the country freely in broad dsy light just as it is in Somalia.

Besides poor eastern European nations are still hundred times greater than all the countries in Africa. Their citizens have more economic opportunities. They have great education. Nigerian students are still at home and might be spending 2 years at home. Unemployment rate is low. Strong passports and visas to migrate if they are tired of their environment. Universal healthcare. What does Nigeria have to offer to anybody. Education 0 job 0. Everything 0.

Africa isn't wealthy. We have passed the stage in the world where natural resources bring wealth. We don't even control the price of the natural resources. The world now is run based on value and what you can bring to the table. Those days of going to the ground taking resources and selling them and sharing money are going to be over very fast.

Nigeria is already the world's poverty capital and it's getting poorer. Only God knows what the future holds for her alongside other African countries because they are all useless grin

Your post is about which country's economy is better in Ukraine and Nigeria, you use GDP as a reference; I corrected you by telling you to use GDP per capital income instead. I think that is were the discussion should end.

USA of no doubt has the highest GDP not GDP per capital income. And I must have made mistake by saying USA has the highest GDP per capital income. I made a blunder there.

The Ukrainian dude left his country for another country dominated by Caucasians meanwhile you did not leave Nigeria to another black dominated country? What does it tell you? That Sub-Saharan Africa - home to 95% of black people - is home to the largest number of poor people than any other continent is very poor and actually a slum. In fact, Nigeria which you erroneously stated as Africa's richest has the highest number of poor people in the world yet is the most populated country on the continent. Meaning that there are more poor people in Nigeria than almost all of Eastern Europe.

Africa is not wealthy, the earlier you know this, the better for you. Wealth is not what you have but what you can make do with. Japan, Switzerland, South Korea and Singapore don't have half of the so-called minerals most African countries possess yet are amongst some of the richest places on the planet because they utilised the most important resource - human resource. Which is why crude oil is useless if there is no superior human knowledge in extracting it. In fact, without advanced knowledge from White and Asian dominated countries, so-called minerals in most African countries would have been worthless. Just like crude oil is facing imminent decline in demand due to green technology, it means that so-called wealth will become valueless in the world market. It is the buyer of crude that determines the price of the product based on what s/he intends using it for. Coal more than a 100 years was once like crude oil but today? Less value, implying those countries that were wealthy because they had coal aren't wealthy any longer. Tomorrow, if European and American consumers decide to consume cell based chocolate, the so-called cocoa which could be peddled as wealth based on your post will lose value just as cell/plant based meat will one day make animal based meat to lose value. The buyer dictates whether the so-called mineral is valuable invariably making the country to be wealthy

While GDP is a major indicator of measuring a country's wealth, it is not the only way ditto for GDP per capita. Rather, HDI should be placed at the top. Nigeria according to you is richer than Ukraine based on the sizes of both countries' economies but which country has the highest number of poor people in the world? How can such a country be said to be rich? Yes, any rational person will underrate Africa because it has the highest number of poor people in the world. Have you seen or read where a rich country/person is underrated? So, assuming Africa should not be underrated, what do you recommend? Be placed at the same level like Malaysia? South Korea? Vietnam? Brazil? Do you know the sacrilege you would have committed? If you desire that Africa should not be under-rated, then countries on the continent should be rich, at least more than Eastern Europe then afterwards South East Asian countries then maybe North Asia before Western countries.

Africa is poor and has the highest number of poor people. Last I checked, there is a link between high poverty rates and proliferation of slums. These are facts and they don't care about feelings. https://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007/978-1-349-08473-9_2

Poor is relative. Poor in terms of worldwide standard of living. There are certain amenities that are considered basic.... 24/7 electricity and running water... good roads and road network.... and in this age ... nationwide reliable internet and wireless communication services.... then educational and health services .... and job opportunities.... jobs in which people can earn enough to adequately take care of their families. The extent to which a country can provide these determines whether a country is poor and how poor. How much is the GDP has nothing to do with what's happening on ground. If the GDP has raised by 500%... do you really believe Nigeria will no longer be termed a 'poor country"?

Africa is rich in resources.... and has the potential to become as wealthy as any country... but like someone said earlier...we have a management problem.
On Europe and the West...... if Africa is wiped off the map..... Europe and the Wdst will crumble overnight. The West depends on Africa for survival period.... chew on that.

Any continent that is devoid of knowledge will remain poor and very poor ...

knowledge is absent in Africa but there are alot of resources which Africans do not valued but was valued by Caucasians...

some people are urinating and pooping on some precious stones right now inside some jungle in Africa...

But until Caucasians build machine that will start using those precious stones as Fuel for the machine , Africa man will never use his own brain to create value for the stones....

our oyel, our oyel... before Caucasians came to explore and exploit the oyel in the Niger delta, what was the value of the oyel to the Nigerdeltan and the Northerners that's ready to kill everyone for it ...

Nothing ... Now if Caucasians stopped building machines that are using oyel as fuel ... That's how Oyel will become valueless ....

Another imaginary stat from the National Bureau of Imaginary Statistics. You people tend to be very proud yet come from a continent bedevilled with wanton corruption, unemployment, poverty and instability yet will have the audacity to spew that should Africa be expunged, the West will crumble.
