Thisday edition of Sunday, November 28 quoted Sanusi Lamido, the CBN governor describing Nigeria as a country that imports what it produces and exports what it does not have.
According to him, “Nigeria is the sixth world producer of crude oil, 8th in natural gas, but imports petroleum products; Nigeria finds it difficult to get the tenets of democracy but exported democracy to Liberia; it is a country that finds it difficult to generate 4,000 MWT of electricity, but exports power to Niger Republic; it is the world’s number one in terms of cassava production, but no starch and ethanol industry that can create jobs to engage its teaming graduates.
We play big brother but our home is in shambles. Charity begins at home. I hope our leaders will read this.
