Nigeria has lengthy over trusted oil income, therefore, any time there’s a fluctuation in oil worth, it might positively inform on our financial system as an entire. Our nation has been so enslaved by oil income to the extent that our nationwide price range has all the time been primarily based on oil worth benchmark within the worldwide market.

I consider that if each area of this nice nation would focus their efforts within the space of exercise the place they’ve comparative benefits over different areas, our financial system will obtain a lift greater than what’s presently being skilled.
The authorities ought to present the enabling setting whereas the financial take a deep look into selling our pure endowments. The strong minerals cum iron and metal sectors which should be the bedrock of our industrialization now appear to not be receiving the fitting consideration any longer.
Ultimately, what Nigeria must be nice lies inside Nigeria
