Ben­e­fi­cia­ries of Nigeria’s re­based GDP

Daily Trust - - VIEWS -

This is the prob­lem with the Nige­rian govern­ment; paint­ing a black pot stain­less in­stead of wash­ing off the char­coal on it. We want in­ter­na­tional recog­ni­tion or just a fa­cial make-up when you can’t even show your body in a swim­ming pool be­cause of dirty rashes and bleach­ing skin. Things are de­gen­er­at­ing ev­ery­day and we hail the gov­ern­ments when they build a bore­hole and pay heav­ily to con­trac­tors to get per­cent­age out of it. Many vil­lages can’t even af­ford a bot­tle of kerosene a day yet they have oil wells and pipes across their com­mu­nity. Let’s call a spade a spade.
