We missed out on this again, Giant of Africa by population embarassed

Fraudulent population statistics which states that arid desert dwellers are more than than the people of the most congenial deciduous forest areas. Only in Nigeria!

Why will they want to associate with Nigeria when we are ruled by nepotistic leader whose only concern is his tribe and religion? Obasanjo said so: fulanisation and islamization of Nigeria instead of a greater Nigeria.

Amazon is primarily a LOGISTICS company...
It was never going to locate its regional HQ in Nigeria (or even Ghana).

Even in the US, it “rejected” SCORES of cities for its 2d HQ...
The notion that every multinational should be located in Nigeria is DELUSIONAL!

The strategic aligement and realignment is taking place and sadly, the zoo is not anywhere to be found. The rest of the sane countries are been targeted for development and partnership but fulani terrorists run gov't is busy rescuing cows and importing grasses for them from Brazil and granting amnesty to hardened Muslim terrorists.

Next is Biafra getting endorsement and partnership for future development and growth.

Nigeria is the preeminent importer of goods and services on the continent. It cannot make sense to locate a logistics company outside our customs borders. It will simply make their goods more expensive to sell here.

They know this logic but the overwhelming challenges this country faces must have tilted their opinion away.

This is practically what we call the cost of doing business in Nigeria which Amazon will face as well. Nigeria is seriously hostile to investment. There are few things beyond the large but tragically poor population that attracts.

If we are not careful all future investment will amount to more than the production of diapers and 'durex'....if you catch the sad drift.

I am not justifying crime and will never zupport it. I don't need to travel, because I dont live in Nigeria. What I am telling you is what is going on. You hear the hype of Nigeriand being targetted for the crimes of the local nigerian yahoo boys are lies. In fact, they are more afraid of boko haram and insecurity than the local yahoo guys. Do you knoq how many Idian and Russians are being arrested every day for fraud in my community? You hardly hear anything about Nigerians. What you will here about Nigeri in my community is how most of them have masters degree, phd, hardworking, and Nigerian boko haram and corrup government. Idians are always on the news for social security scams. There are also a few nigerian email scams, but they are arrested in their home country nigeria. While i am not here to tic tac with you, again, yahoo people in nigerian dont even have a class yet in the international communities for now.

Omo when it comes to internet fraud give it to Russia n China, what Nigeria boys do is deceive old white naive female to reap them of their money.
That's not the reason tech companies are not investing in Nigeria. The major reason is cost n complexity of doing business in Nigeria.

Secondly, infringement of human right.
Another thing is lack of basic amenities.

The only good thing Nigeria has is a large market, so these companies has decided to serve Nigeria from afar.

Nigeria doesn't even have a large market. Nigeria has a large population with low purchasing power.

Wailers will gather here from their gully erosion ravaged region to wail as if they love Nigeria. Ask them to suggest a solution, they will tell you Atiku who lives in faraway Dubai or Peter Obi who still has SARs case with James nwafar to answer.
Re: Amazon To Open African Headquarters In South Africa by OROSUNBOLB(m): 6:14pm On Apr 21, 2021
Multinational companies and giant conglomerates are opening offices all over Africa except Nigeria ! Do you blame them ? Who would like to open or do any business in a country that shields known terrorists and violent ethnic group - miyetti nonsense from prosecution ? A lawless country in which sanctity of human life means nothing. A country that's deliberately programmed to fail ! How on can any society have somebody like Buhari as a leader and you expect such a society to ever progress ? Failure begets failure, shikena !

Well, poverty is a political tool used on them by those vultures to always have them under their control. Thus with just a meal they can conveniently mobilised as much youths as they want to act their bidding.
