Why must you always compare Nigeria and developed societies? Compare apples with apples and oranges with oranges or go and do something else. If you must, then compare Nigeria to South Korea and Samsung to Dangote Group
I should slow down. You got me started. I’m ready for you today
You are ready for what? Samsung is a global giant today
Are you still hung up on the idea of bringing a foreign corporation into this conversation? Doesn’t your charity begin from home? Mine certainly does
In that case, why didn’t you ask what Nigeria is supposed to do with the fact that Africa’s pride, Aliko Dangote had some significant measure of Surulere in his beginnings?
What do you mean by significant measure of Surulere in his beginnings?
What’s the principal business in Surulere?
Buying and selling.
You are right. He bought and sold in Surulere, in his early years as an entrepreneur
He’s since moved on
Doesn’t he buy and sell anymore?
Yes, but you know he has gone through various cycles of change, in scale, form, kind, substance, expertise, network, reach and relevance.
There is no question about that.
Pardon me for switching the direction you probably intended for this conversation but can you please tell me how many cycles of change, in scale, form, kind, substance, expertise, network, reach and relevance Nigeria has had since the romance with crude oil began in the late 50s?
