    It got worse without a doubt. We discovered oil and didn’t have the skills to manage the new found wealth. We became a threat to the west and couldn’t thwart the successful efforts to disunite us based on tribal and religious lines. We stopped farming and left some of the worlds most arable land unused. We embraced corruption because our leaders legalized it. We are the 4th largest exporter of cocoa (think chocolate and candy), yet Peru in 10th declares more revenue than we do. We are the 5th largest oil exporter…ahead of UAE (Dubai), yet we go there to vacation because they have malls and the infrastructure to attract tourists, while we struggle to clear a forest of bandits. Beneath every cloud nine, lies rock bottom. May we have hit ours and now be on the ascent.

      Ummm. I agree with you, it’s very clear that Nigeria has neglected a lot of untapped natural resources and talents for that matter. But in light of that, do you think it’s possible for a nation to recognize its faults and begin a journey of restoration and repair?
