God is Nigerian enough to bless the country with the world’s 10th largest proven crude oil reserves and the 7th largest proven reserve base of natural gas .Nigeria is about the 12th largest producer of crude oil in the world and the 8th largest exporter. Nigeria has the best weather condition through out the year coupled with large expanse of arable land for Agriculture. All these shows that Nigeria is one of the richest countries in the world .But unfortunately majority of Nigerians are just potentially rich, larger percentage live below poverty line. I don’t want to use the word the poorest people because we are not poor; we are potentially rich because the country wealth is enough to go round.

Let us start this way with this analogy. An heir of a wealthy late father is entitle to some of his inheritance? I guess your answer is yes. Ok let us move on. By virtue of you being born in Nigeria, naturally you are a citizen by birth and Nigeria becomes your fatherland. I hope I am right and correct?

Ok let us come from another angle. Come to think of it ,millionaires and billionaires around the world ,people like Bill Gates, warren buffet, Richard Brandson, aliko Dangote ,Jimoh Ibrahim etc one thing they have in common is that they came to this world with nothing and they were not born with silver spoon but at a point in their lives ,they accessed the portion of their country’s wealth because they were doing something and people are paying for it.

Hmmm, interesting they were doing something, hope you are also pondering, like I am too. Lets move on, let me share some things you must know about the National cake. I will put you through in my next write up on how to assess the National wealth.There is a portion you must access,after all the profit of the earth is for all.see u next week.

Thank you so much for reading this write up.I will appreciate your comments.
