THE REAL NIGERIAN PROBLEM

When asked to analyze the stagnate state of his country Nigeria, the wise and old celebrated man decided to tell a story.
One of our great and not so long ago Nigerian leader took a leaders trip to the UK and during launch with her majesty the queen, he asked her to tell him her secret of leadership. In response, the queen picked up the phone and dialed her Prime Minister Tony, she asked him a very direct question expecting an answer like it was a riddle “your father and mother had a child” she asked, “it’s not your brother and it’s not your sister, who is the person?” “It’s me, your majesty” she thanked him and hanged-up the phone. Turning to the Nigeria leader, she said with a smile “You see, I just have to surround myself with intelligent people”
The Nigerian leader came back home summoned the senate president immediately, he asked him the same exact question with high expectations “your father and mother had a child” she asked, “it’s not your brother and it’s not your sister, who is the person?” the senate president thought a while, then told the Nigerian leader that the matter was too delicate to take likely and would need time to carry out proper investigations, the Nigerian leader gave him two weeks. The senate president immediately called an emergency meeting of the house and threw the matter open, the house deliberated for hours and then decided that a committee be set up.
The committee sat and came up with a working budget to aid their research, they needed to travel to the senate president’s village and since the roads were bad and security poor. They arranged for new cars and conveys with lodging allowances, travel allowances, feeding etc., billions were approved. Hours to their deadline, the committee met again with no conclusive report. The senate president than decided to call on his good friend Jerry Rowling’s of Ghana, he asked him the exact same question, “your father and mother had a child” she asked, “it’s not your brother and it’s not your sister, who is the person?” Jerry answered, “It’s me u dumb Nigerian” the senate president immediately took his convoy to the Nigerian leader’s rock, ran up to his room and breathing very fast with only seconds to the deadline, he said to the Nigerian leader. “Your Excellency, I have the answer, it’s Jerry Rowling’s of Ghana.
The Nigerian Leader look at him really disappointed with his response and said “no no, no, my friend, it’s Tony Blair of England………..
If you are simply laughing then this was a joke but if you are nodding your head at the same time, then this is a very serious matter. Our leaders spend billions on issues of state seeking solutions when in most cases it’s just there staring at us all in the face e.g. Oil Refineries and Fuel Subsidy
