SLIDEBOOM Nigeria: Our Resource Curse - Dutch or Nigerian Disease?,

More amazing is the refusal of a national gas company, in which Nigeria has the controlling equity, to sell gas to local independent power projects. Our large population provides cheap labour that the Chinese and Indian industrialists are exploiting but our leaders forgets that this is an asset for a strong manufacturing sector. We cannot even handle basic infrastructure of power and transportation. Yes, our political institutions are seriously floored but when we talk of institutions, the press, civil societies, NGOs and the society at large are involved. We all owe ourselves a duty to hold government accountable by bringing to light their ills, bring them to book and, if need be, by getting to the streets in protest. The Arab Spring of North Africa and Middle East is a point of lesson, that we should not remain so pliable in the face of official ineptitude.
