      That is why there is something called Political Economics
      Everywhere all over u cant separate politics from business, even amongst mations.
      So your eyes are really still closed. U need to open it

    Hmmmm! What about the import waivers,campaign contributions and other advantages? Corruption can be direct or Indirect. Now, the questions we need to ask is – are connections corruption?

      Was he the only one to get import waivers, or (more importantly) was he the person that created the waivers? Next, you will accuse those Silicon Valley companies that benefitted from tax credits of corruption. Haba!!

      The fact that he is not the only one to et import waivers and the rest and that he was not the one that created it does not mean he must partake in it. Corruption is corruption, simple.

      And please, do not bring silicon valley companies – there lies the height of corruption, just because they don’t steal like our Nigerian politicians does not mean that they are not corrupt. Do some research please.

    the only reason why is the richest entrepreneur is the lack of competition in the cement industry in Nigeria, the government has denied thousands of people the right to operate in this industry simply because of bribe. He his corruption himself.
