  10. Terdz says:

    Nigeria is a country cursed by abundance of resources: until we start killing thieves, fraudsters called leaders, I mean in the civil service inclusive we shall make no headway. Stop celebrating those who steal your resources for thier personal gains.

  11. adamu says:

    please kindly let me know Nigerian population statistics of male and female parents and religious clerics.Thank you.

    • adamu says:

      population census should also take good care of number of muslims and christians religious clerics in both urban and rural areas.This will greatly help in curtailing those selfish religious clerics who always like to mislead their followers.

  16. Ifeanyi Enebeli says:

    For us to have an effective and productive population our educational system from primary to tertiary level must be properly funded for it to have the capacity to produce resourceful graduates.

  17. Dahiru Mohammed Musa says:

    Nigeria is blessed with every resource. Human and natural reseources are in abundant. Indeed my country is great. But why people are suffering in the country? This question has differet answers. However, my opinion is that we lack good human resource that will put in to practice proper utilization of these abundant natural resources. According to Prof. (Emeratus) Ali Al – Amin Mazuri, he described Africa as Garden of Eden in decay. This is so because the abundant natural resources are not properly into use. Hence, we lack good human resource. In fact this is pity.

  18. Abdulrahman idris says:

    The former nigerian military head of state general muhammad buhari he was one of the most formidable intellects of his time @ vote for him 4the next 2015 election…………….

  19. Awura Adeck Bina says:

    Nigeria has every thing needed in terms of human and natural resources to develop beyond where we are now. Our political class/leaders out of their selfish interest destroy national interest to promote wickedness of all kinds that is affecting the our blessed human and natural resources, with all the sectors of the economy surviving under the virus of stagnation.
