Nigeria’s Economic Recession: ​We are just wasting time

A region of the Nigerian economy was listed as the fastest growing in the world in the 1960s, but we also had corruption in the 1960s.

China was also fighting corruption, growing her economy and fighting an insurgency as well. In the 1970s, China sent engineers to study flyover bridges in Lagos. Chinese were dying of famine in the 1960s.
China is still fighting corruption but her economy is the second largest in the world.
You can have a booming economy and fight corruption, they are not mutually exclusive.

We make it sound like the economy must stop and shutdown before we fight corruption.
We wasted months looking for “clean” ministers and ended up with Dalong; are there no competent and honest people that can serve?
Our recession is self made, a DIY recession. We  refused to scrap capital controls or remove fuel subsidy that’s why we are where we are and not a fall in oil prices. When did we appoint a NSA?when did we appoint a Minister of Finance?
If you know the President tell him to chew gum and walk at the same time. We can build schools and power plants and fight corruption at the same time.
it’s our problem, we can fix it
