Nigeria: A trudging giant @ 59

Quote
“Some would argue that Nigeria has progressed with more hospitals, universities, airports and high rise buildings and keeping the country united. While these proponents may be right, the reality is that countries like China, India, Indonesia and Brazil, whose populations are bigger than Nigeria’s, except for Indonesia, and who were at par with Nigeria in the early 1960s, have all overtaken her. Where are the groundnut pyramids, the cocoa farms and the oil palm plantations? How come that at 59 years the country cannot feed herself? The challenge of insecurity of lives and property, massive unemployment, declining living standards, – the worst since 1960-and total collapse of public infrastructure in the land are inexcusable for a country that is ranked the sixth in global oil production”
