Nigeria in 10 years!

As evident in the status quo, Nigeria is mired in a state of political mess, corruption is endemic and the coming election is threatening the body politic. Yet the positive growth is undeniable – population is rising, agriculture is largely untapped, technology is emerging, and there is opportunity abound in the financial, services and productive sectors. As Malcolm X once pointed out, the future is for those who prepare for it today. The meet-up will offer us an opportunity to look into the next 10 years with our knowledge of the past and discuss growth, challenges, opportunities and threats while identifying pathways for individual and collective success. Our discussion will encompass how we as individuals can take advantage of rising prospects while taking cognizance of threats and challenges.

    It's important to remember the main thing is social re-engineering as a nation.

    Had very stimulating conversationa about problems facing Nigeria and suggested solutions/opportunities. Many views were shared about the potential solutions to the problems, however, we all agreed that Nigeria problem is COMPLEX and requires great SYSTEMs/INSTITUTIONs! I hope we can begin to delve dipper, in order to come up with highly creative ideas resulting in innovative solutions.
    Have a fabulous week all :)
