Nigeria as a country is blessed with Natural and Human Resources and citizens from this country have proven beyond doubts that they have all it takes to succeed in life. We all know that our dear country is currently being bedeviled by terrorists who have vowed to disturb the peace of the country. Even at this, the country and her citizens are still moving forward, taking life they way they see it and hoping for a better Nigeria in the nearest future.
Experiencing economic melt down and recession will make one think Nigeria's economy is in jeopardy, but just recently I was proven wrong when I saw a rating by Africa's Facts Zone, placing Nigeria on the top spot as the country with the largest economy in 2021. Nigeria having made the top list was valued to have an income of $514 billion, followed by Egypt valued at $394.3 billion, with a difference of almost $150 billion.
At the bottom of the list are countries like Ghana whose currency (cedis) was recently rated as the best in Africa. The West African country has $74.260 billion, while Cote d'Ivoire, $70.991 billion. One would fault this list judging from 'Inflation' that is currently rocking Nigeria as a country and the only way this can be seen in Nigeria's Economy is if the per capital income is calculated and estimated.
President Muhammadu Buhari's Personal Assistant on Media, Bashir Ahmed reacted to the post as he described it as 'socially distanced'. He threw his weight around Nigeria and celebrated his country for such a great achievement.
After he retweeted, some Nigerians took to the comment section as they expressed their dissatisfaction in the list released that placed Nigeria first on the list. They decried the current state of Nigeria's economy and opined that per capital income should be calculated so as to know how bad the state of the economy is. Some also said that Nigeria emerging top is because of contributions from rich men whose businesses benefit the economy of Nigeria.
With the way the prices of food items are on the increase, will you agree with this list? Like, share and drop a comment.
