Africa's Largest Economy Blames Snakes And Monkeys For Its Corruption

32 posts in this topic

There is something strange afoot in Nigeria, Africa’s largest economy. Animals have been making away with huge sums of money. No, this is not a euphemism.

Quote

 

When a team of auditors recently tried to check the accounts of the Nigerian exam board for public universities, ₦36m (naira) (about US$100,000) could not be accounted for. A clerk reported that the money had been stolen from the vault by a “snake”, which swallowed it. Then, in February, a senator, defending a colleague accused of misappropriating funds, suggested that a missing ₦70m (about US$194,600) was carted away by monkeys on the other senator’s farm.

These offences are trivial compared to the much larger sums and far graver offences that Nigerian public office holders have been accused of. Nigerians frequently wake to new allegations of corruption that involve vast sums of money.

The fact that a number of countries are taking effective strides to tackle corruption makes the strange phenomena of animals being blamed for missing funds in Nigeria even more galling. Many Nigerians resorted to humour in response to the reports – there is clearly a mix of resignation and frustration at this new twist on a common news story. For the sake of the country and its citizens, let’s hope for a reversal in this trend.

 

Not to mention some ex-Oil Minister there who keeps sending emails asking me to accept a transfer of $9 million into my personal bank account.:o

Trump's description of these countries was spot-on.

Nigeria is Africa's largest economy.  It outperforms South Africa's economy.  South Africans who have been economically, culturally, and politically stunted by generations of oppression by Caucasian settlers have not been able to achieve the industrial, commercial, or artistic accomplishments of Nigeria, despite that nation's many warts.  This is because corruption and malfeasance, however pervasive and crippling, pale as developmental hindrances when compared with the debiliating effects of generations of racial oppression.  

The same reality is shown in comparing wealth accumulation among African Americans  with that of Nigerians.  Nigeria's economy is essentially a rounding error when compared with the US economy, yet Nigeria constantly produces billionaire level citizens and high level multi millionaires whose wealth is rooted in productive industries, something America has absolutely failed to do with regards to AAs due to pervasive discrimination.  Nigerian born and educated physicians emigres number in the thousands, and are among some of the top physicians in America, performing complex operations.  And Nigeria is a draw for African immigrants on a level that dwarfs that of Europe.  That is why Nigeria has an illegal immigrant problem.

African Americans being happy about the Black Panther movie has turned some Caucasians into paninis.  They are pressed.  B)

Good.  That is as it should be.   :lol:

The Caucasian Supremacist fools don't even wonder why Nigeria is the largest economy in Africa despite its pervasive corruption and the presence of other countries on the continent who should easily be able to lay claim to the title (Egypt, South Africa, Algeria, etc.)  They can't even grasp how that fact undermines their cause.  Idiots.

Squished heated sandwiches? Really?

Oh please the use of the term panini was meant as a metaphor for being pressed.  And paninis tend to be toasty not squishy. 

But my main point still stands.  Despite its grotesque levels of corruption Nigeria is still the largest economy on a continent that includes other nations who on paper should be able to claim that title.  In particular  South Africa’s economy is much much diverse and advanced than Nigeria’s economy.  Yet due to apartheid and ongoing Caucasian recalcitrance the South African economy has been surpassed by Nigeria’s.  Nigeria’s film industry, Nollywood, is viewed throughout the continent and is a pervasive Pan African influence.  South Africa has no such equivalent.

We can blame the problems in our society to the unregulated snakes and monkeys among us as well.

The Nigerians who make ridiculous assertions about snakes and monkeys can at least be excused on the ground that if they told the truth they would most likely be beaten, tortured, and killed by the Mafia -like hooligans responsible for the corruption.  

Americans on the other hand tend not to face such consequences.  Yet they go along with massive corruption because many are just plain morally indolent.

The Negroid Supremacist fools don't even wonder why the 80% of Nigerians live in abject poverty despite having the richest oil reserves in Africa, and why Nigerians are regressing and getting poorer (unlike the rest of the world).

What is really baffling is that a country adequately endowed with all the resources, human and material, needed to propel her dynamic population into a new era of prosperity has been stuck in the quagmire of endemic poverty.

A woefully inadequate road and highway system, practically zero healthcare infrastructure, and an almost-nonexistent electrical supply system.

Without being immodest, Nigeria could easily become the richest country in Africa if her resources are judiciously managed. But its fortunes have been gratuitously gambled away by a succession of inept, clueless and self-centred leaders who lacked the vision and knowledge to properly drive her development.

Maybe they should stop blaming "Caucasian Supremacist fools" instead of looking at their own cluelsssness and ineptness wen it comes to providing basic infrastructure for a country who by all other measures should be a global economic leader.

Nigeria's poverty and wealth is not that contradictory.  Nigeria's wealth is concentrated in the hands of the few and the masses obtain paltry benefits from the growing economy.  In that sense Nigeria is akin to Mexico, which although it has a larger and more developed economy than Nigeria, is similar to it in that the wealth of the country flows into the hands of a few oligarchs while the masses languish in deep poverty (Why else have so many Mexicans fled to the US?)  Another major factor in Nigeria's underdevelopment is that the oil wealth is largely controlled by the Muslim dominated north.  In their typical divide and rule policy, the British amalgamated the Muslim north with the (then) mostly pagan/slightly Christian south and placed the Muslims firmly in charge of the military and government.  The Muslim north has underinvested in the south because it is envious of the region's higher rate of education and economic progress.  At the same time, the Muslim leaders in the north discourage education of girls, thus holding back the progress of the north.  Nigeria's dismal statistics are tilted disporopreionalely by the lesser developed state of the northern portion of the country.  So, no the Nigerian government is not clueless, its underdevelopment is by design and traceable to envy.   Ask most Nigerian immigrants (who tend to be Igbo and Yoruba) and they will freely state that if the southern portion were independent Nigeria would be closer to a second world nation than a third world nation.

And yet, for all of that mess, Nigeria is still the largest economy in Africa.    :P

Actually, Rhodesia was a breadbasket for Caucasians who obtained the wealth from looted land while the natives languished in poverty.  And while Mugabe has lamentably lapsed into corrupted tyrannical craziness (He is trying to come back to power at 94.  At 94 how can he even move?  He is like a d*mn vampire, somebody find a stake and do him in), the true source of Zimbabwe's woes has been economic sabotage by jealous/enraged/pressed Caucasians.  Even as Zimbabwe's economy has suffered, the post-caucasian government has managed to create economic opportunity for its indigenous citizens that the Caucasian dominated government would never have tolerated.  Even a butt-poor third world nation is able to create superior business opportunities for its people than say, the US does for African Americans.  That is because the government of Zimbabwe is not obsessed with keeping people of African descent poor.  It is just that simple.

Do you own a house in the United States? I would pay to see the look on your face, when that Native American knocks on your door, demanding the land back that sits underneath your house, because of your illegitimately gotten gains, possibly gained   through your ancestors. 

Your last two sentences would be priceless, if they weren’t so predictably tragic:

    “ That is because the government of Zimbabwe is not obsessed with keeping people of African descent poor.” 

     “ it is just that simple “..........

    Your final sentence, speaks for itself.

In my humble opinion both the OP and Kandace have openly expressed racism time and again, and yet they are both still here spewing their hatred for each other's skin pigmentation. Sad and disgusting.

Don't be too hard on Kandace, she's simply copying & pasting that which she has been told to copy & paste.

Ah yes, the old “both sides are guilty” argument.  It conveniently ignores the fact that I spread knowledge not hatred.

You encourage hatred by the way you "spread knowledge". As do the OP and joba every time they post some obscure news article about a black person having committed a crime or expressing odd behavior .

Knowledge being shared without the overtones of bias, from one extreme or the other, is a good thing. When the overtones of bias take center stage I fine both extremes disgusting.

I rarely agree with kandace, but are you seriously trying to put her on the same level as that disgusting troll Jeeb, er Paz, er Tyrann, er... whatever it's name is?  Seriously?  kandace has her prejudices for sure, but I have never EVER seen her post in the same nasty hate-filled style as that thing you're comparing her to.
