    Nigeria can emulate China to industrialize. At first Chairman Mao banned all imported goods, cut ties with predatory foreign market forces, shunned borrowing money from World Bank, killed all coupists and ex-coupists, hanged all known
    corrupt officials, made education free for all citizens, rewarded scholars specializing in science and Math. He then looked inward, promoted unity and justice for all, checked religious extremists, abolished polygamy, checked excessive population growth, and emphasized nationalism.

    Today China is self-sufficient, 2nd most powerful economic power in the world. Here in the Republic of Nigeria Buhari is
    a non-starter. He is not doing anything useful to mankind. He is nepotistic and anti-science. His policies are not the way to develop a nation.

    Don’t get me wrong, I do not hate Buhari. The problem is that he does not know any better, his advisers and appointee do not know any better either. There are many Nigerians from every zone who can move the country forward, but such people are often ignored or clamped down by the corrupt forces.
