Mr President (Musa Yar’Adua), this is another reminder that the world does not take Nigeria serious. To even make matters worse, Nigeria was grouped among some 20 failed states in an article that appeared on Guardian Newspaper of UK, Thursday November 27 2008 page 23. This will do a terrible damage on our battered image abroad. Our clamour for foreign investors will be a joke taking into account our poor image.
I will advise you to make a viable and transparent plan of action so that Nigeria and the Nigerian masses can benefit from the funds which the G20 pledged to developing nations. Nigeria is part of the global economy, therefore your government should fashion out a way by which Nigeria should benefit from this biggest global economic stimulus of our time as announced by the G20. However for us to benefit from G20 global economic recovery package, transparency will be highly needed on the Nigerian economic sector. Transparency is what your administration should endeavour to establish. May God bless Nigeria .
