Title: Nigeria: The Economy And Military Super Power

Nigeria The Economy And Military Super Power
1888 PressRelease - The evolving economic and
political dynamic in Africa and the role Nigeria
now plays. In the past several weeks there have
been numerous reports via and through the media
suggesting that Nigeria has surpassed South
Africa to become the most super Economy Power in
Africa! Such media reporting appears to be
authentic on the basis that albeit South Africa
has been a/the leading African economy for a
while, most medias appear to now agree amidst a
substantiated and demonstrated general African
Economy of growth which has been moving forward,
will subsequently create a good economy
challenged only by competing continents of which
such competition the African countries will be
willing and able to participate with. The
Economical and Political aspect should also be
considered with the question being asked - Are
the African nations really changing economically
for the better or just the review of the
accounting policy???. Regarding the economic
aspect, although there is a willingness to
believe in this prosperous news, there still
needs to be an exploring of how this could occur
when in the previous three years there was no
change on the economy status or economic
indicators. The African nations appear to be
developing and retailing huge elements of their
natural resources but with little or no
investment in to their own domestic employment
based economies or infrastructures. The African
countries are generating wealth and GDP at the
expense of no investment into their own economic
and or welfare needs such as water, healthcare
and education. Externally, such governmental
activity does not honor the country with any
economic prowess or respect. In real terms the
only thing that appears to be changing is the
Treasury accounting policy and not the human
rights consideration of the people whom reside in
such naturally wealthy resourced jurisdictions.
In real terms Nigeria is probably not the only
country to take such an approach to "creative
accounting". A review of governmental accounting
books is obviously taking place in several other
African countries also in addition to many
developed western world countries also. This
method and use of financial manipulation, is
adopted in many countries when and before the
approach of a general election to "beef" up the
government balance sheet.
On the political aspect Nigeria is one of
countries within Africa that has produced
political leaders for not only Nigeria but all of
Africa. Nigeria has exported its culture, music,
sports and many issues to the rest of the world.
Nigeria should be looking for Leadership but not
a President to lead this great nation to its own
destiny and also Africa's destiny. When the
French government did their first nuclear text in
the Algeria desert, Nigeria was part of the
leading group of countries in Africa to highly
protest against General De Gaulle Government. The
Gerboise Bleue was four times as powerful as the
bomb dropped on Hiroshima. Due to a legal case
brought by veterans of France's nuclear tests,
expert Bruno Barillot tells Le Parisien that "the
norms at the time were a lot less strict than
today". The document also admits that dangerous
levels of iodine-131 and caesium-137 were found
in Chad's capital, N'Djamena, as well as Arak,
near Tamanrasset in southern Algeria. According
to the newspaper le Parisien and the expert Mr.
Bruno Barillot "Everybody knows today that these
radioactive elements cause cancers or
cardio-vascular diseases," Former Nigeria
Government under the Presidency of General Gown,
the Former Nigeria President had strongly
protested against General De Gaulle's Government,
this protestation had irritated the former French
Government, to the extent the French would
encourage, involve, support and arm the Biafra
war, which killed several millions of Nigerian
people. During that war there was new arms
testing that resulted and still this day
continues to harm people. Nigeria, the most
densely populated country in Africa has been a
key player in leading West African Forces in
Liberia, Sierra Leone and the Ivory Coast Crisis
and recently Mali also. Nigeria has the ability
to exercise its economic strengths during its
military occupations. The temporary Government in
charge of the country's affairs during these
times was enacting several illicit trades or
commerce agreements and albeit under the embargo
was very lucrative. The governments under embargo
still had privileged relations with their
homologues in Africa and also in the westerner's
world. These relations had encouraged the illicit
trade/commerce under the embargo in exchange for
arms to continue their wars. The consequences of
such were several hundreds of thousands of deaths
and millions of displaced people with shortage of
water, food supplies and diseases. All these
situations involving warlords and allies in
Africa and Westerner's world were aware of these
criminals' activities and subsequently enjoyed
the war crime privileges!
During the aforementioned war process, the
International Court in The Hague filed charges
against the Former leaders and wanted them to be
extradited to The Hague. The election in Liberia
and the ex-president Charles Taylor is exiled in
Nigeria. Africa's biggest country and the West
African largest economy and Military Force were
capable of turning that International Court
request down and demonstrate Nigeria's regional
or Africa leadership and determined the Former
President of Liberia will be judged in Nigeria,
West Africa or in one of the African countries.
It remains to be seen what the implication will
be of court requests and arms dealings and
accusations. Former President Charles Taylor
needs to face his responsibility but this war
would not have continued without the involvement
of certain people and government arms
manufacturer's etc but he appears to be the only
one who is getting punished. On the basis of
current dealings, the question of How Africa is
going to be respected is of paramount importance.
During said war there were several United Nations
employees and or military persons whom were
involved in the arms trades and the supplying
arms. During the Ivorian presidential election
dispute, Nigeria immediately took sides with one
of the contenders. This situation created several
thousands of deaths, disappearances,
infrastructures demolished and a costly
rebuilding program with the need for costly loans
to the country in mention. No one knows why a
simple Presidential election could create such
animosity between the same nation of people whom
have been living together in peace for many
years, grew together, went to the same schools,
universities and played sports together? In the
Ivorian Election, if you put aside who won the
election and focus on the issue of if it is
possible for a United Nations employee to have
the power to declare a presidential election
winner of the country? What happened to law and
Constitution?? How did such a thing occur? The
Ivory Coast is located in West Africa, which
country would you think had the better
jurisdiction and super power to solve the
problem? Surely Nigeria!!! No!!. During the
process Nigeria become an extension of the NATO
forces with threats to other political
challengers. Nigeria made the statement!!-Our
military is ready to come to the Ivory Coast and
remove the challenger. In simple form Nigeria
didn't take the opportunity to show his
leadership through this Ivorian crisis. They
failed to let the two presidential contenders sit
and work through the process and reach a
compromise. It appears that the Great Country of
Nigeria was receiving orders and requests from
other developed countries in the region and
elsewhere to allow the Ivory Coast to become
This begs the question-which country is going to
be the next elected by United Nations? Maybe
Nigeria!! Maybe a recount of Ivorian Presidential
election votes would be appropriate?? Former
President of Liberia Charles Taylor (West Africa)
was sent to The Hague, for Presidential Election
issues another former President of Ivory Coast
was sent to The Hague under the Military
leadership and guidance of Nigeria! It is very
sad and sorrowful to see such a great nation
become an economic puppet. If the Ivory Coast
could not judge the former President of Ivory
Coast why should anyone? This appears to be
global and UN overreach!! West Africa needs to
stand firm and handle their affairs appropriately
and respectfully. In addition to the above, the
Boko Haram situation has made Nigeria Government
weaker than ever. It is very sad to read in the
media and news papers how many people die per day
due to issues relative to the Boko Haram
situation and the most recent of the young girls
being abducted is the absolute sign of sovereign
weakness the parents are emotionally destroyed
and the government doesn't have a solution! Are
these girls still in Nigeria? Do they benefit
from other country's supports? For the security
of the people and eradication of this group why
does Nigeria not decide to close the borders and
mobilize a manhunt until the group is eradicated?
Who is financing them? Why could Nigeria not ask
assistance of other countries in West Africa,
such as Ghana, Senegal, Benin, Togo or Angola,
South Africa, Egypt, Algeria etc? Nigeria the
Great economy and military power in West Africa
is asking for the United Nations to come and
rescue it by fighting Boko Haram! This shows that
Nigeria is not the Nigeria it used to be? There
is potential for this recent event to explode
into an experience like no crisis before the
United Nations has been involved with,
potentially much worse than their earlier
involvement (Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Ivory
Coast, Liberia, Central African Republic, Sudan,
Etc.) It will be a huge mistake that if there is
such involvement this Boko Haram crisis. This
will create a problem for all the West and
Central Africa it could turn into an
irreversible mess of human loss and economic
catastrophe. The Former President of Ghana
Honorable Gerry Rawlings has expressly protested
against this idea to let the United Nations be
involved with this affair.
It appears that Nigeria is on a quest for third
party leadership and not a Presidential leader.
With the appointment of the appropriate captain
and the subsequent steering of the economic and
political giant Nigerian ship to hand,
Nigeria and the other West African countries and
the rest of Africa, could be an immense economic
and political might that could content for
continental economic supremacy. At this moment in
time Nigeria and West Africa are at a loss to
find their identity. For more information about
