Nigeria: President Fooled the People Again

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Nigeria, Development, Politics

Japheth J Omojuwa says that Nigeria's president is fooling the people again [1]: “Those of you getting fooled by phony rankings placing Nigeria as the fourth fastest growing economy in the world (or ninth as some other agencies reported), should not be fooled. There is a paradigmatic difference between growth and development. Wasn’t that why our teachers made us understand their differences and individual meanings? We may be growing as an economy but we are far from developing as a people and a society.”
