A rich man in Nigeria is more wealthy than his counterpart in Europe. The reason is that he pays much less taxes, and finances his infrastructure himself (electricity, water, security et al), and the cost is much smaller than his tax would be in Europe. He also has a cheaper staff pool to draw on. The only disadvantage he has are probably the bad roads, but with an appropriate car, even this is not that big of a problem.

An appropriate car? Even if there is an appropriate car, that car won't fly over traffic jams. :)

Nigeria should put a tax on beer and cigarettes and allocate all the revenue generated in that manner towards fixing public hospitals. Beer should cost N400/bottle and cigarettes should be N500/pack

Yeah I agree with that. I think the gov't should reduce the size of beer bottles in Nigeria, and still sell it at the same rate. Nigerians consume a lot of beer at a given time! I blame the bottle size tho

To those who said Goodluck has no balls, removing the fuel subsidy is the most ballsy move any Nigerian president has ever done

Like when he disbanded the super Eagles?

Why don't you wait until he actually removes it and keeps it removed.

Any baby that can talk can say anything. Saying stuff requires no balls. Doing does.

Only 'Like'? I expected 'awesome' or 'mindblowing'.

The solution to the state police argument: Let all states pay a state-allocated clean-cop bonus. Any policeman who is filmed breaking the law (bribes, etc) does not get this bonus. Bonus is decided by the state governments.

Nigeria should have "fast track" courts for any crime that has video evidence. This will encourage people to film crimes with their cell-phones. It will also help against police brutality and lynch mobs.

Nigeria should pay N1000 for everyone who gets HIV tested at designed centers. Up to N100 billion every 5 years

When forty winters have attacked your brow,
and dug deep trenches in your beauty's field...
Your youth's proud dressing, so admired now,
will be a tattered weed of small value held.

Then being asked where all your beauty lies,
where is all the treasure of your lusty days,
You'll say from within your deep sunken eyes
they were an all-eating shame, and it was pointless praise.

How much more praise would deserve your beauties use,
if you could answer: 'This fair child of mine
will sum up my counts, and be my old excuse',
Proving his beauty by inheriting thine!

This could be you, made anew when you are old,
and to see your blood warm when you feel it cold
