The vice president of Nigeria, Prof Yemi Osinbajo’s take on the security challenge in the country has it that, it is caused by the refusal of the elites to spill the truth to power. He made this statement as per report from The Cable news.
Prof, sorry to say it is not. It is rather, the negligence of the ruling African elites that has kept African countries perpetually poor! It is only in African countries that you will see a man/woman with the lowest level of education ruling a vast majority of learned and exposed population.
Simply because the former has fame and wealth. Even if that be, there is always room for upgrade. There is no limit to knowledge. One has to polish & upgrade one's standard from time to time to meet up with the contemporary world! Afterall, most of these elites travel abtoad and they see the way things are beiog run over there. Sadly, they comply & co-operate with rules over there.
But, back home here, they use crude methods to run our economy. Why can't they apply those policies they abide with over there to run economy too?
If we have leaders that are intellectually sound, the most appropriate thing to do is to give room to innovations and advancement in all their policies which in turn will positively affect the economic growth of such countries.
I make my submission in humility.
