    Here they come again, meddling with the same colonial, bigoted mindset of superiority. IMF has never benefited the country and their spies who probably want a divided Nigeria continue to give polluted pro European and anti-Nigerian advise to keep the Africans in check. If Nigerian leaders can wake up and realize the potential of the country to lead Africa in economic and political power and be an EXAMPLE of successful nation state led by Black MEN the world including progressive Western leaders will be grateful. Here we go again with the same old “dirty” dance. Good luck prez

      The wolf are coming dictating the way you need to run your economy and make structural adjustment. The IMF is the devil and the root of all evil, the downfall of so many States. God spare Nigeria cos IMF has no mercy.

    We’re doomed, looking at Emefiele Christine has already spun her French magic on him. Devaluation and further liberalisation incoming.
    She may represent an evil neo-colonialist organization that crushed the balls of countless countries, but damn she’s got swag!!

    Serious note though she’s obviously going to make lot of requests which Buhari if he sticks to his antecedents will refuse, meaning that her bosses will junk us. Harder times are coming, but its a brave new path, hopefully we navigate to safety and you know avoid the fate of countries who form initial gra-gra with the IMF. **Cough Cough** Greece, Syriza, Tsipiras.

      I hope you all know Nigeria is very broke and it would even get worse. This is what we get when we drive ourselves through corruption to a broke state, you run to the devil for help, causing even more harm. Oh well, we are definitely reaping what we are sowing, and no God isn’t coming down soon to save us from ourselves because he has already given us the knowledge and will power to do so, but we rather expend such gifts on being corrupt.

    They are coming again oooo…to restructure our economy to suit the western world so we will continually be in debt. Hian!!!! This mess got bigger after the first phase was implemented by IBB SAP in 1987….mind you SAP has been in existence in other countries in Asia and south america and check out those countries today, they are still paying interest on debts accrued over time….It pains me deep inside that our leaders can’t sit down and look at history in the last 60 years and realize that we under an economic imperialism controlled by the world bank, IMF and the US…..if and only if we can go back to grassroot development to boost small scale business, then we have great hope for the future…but will these vampires ever allow us to have our way???

    I’m deeply worried.

    But there is hope if we can look inward and be creative and disciplined enough to help ourselves emerge from this rot.

    The World Bank and all such Rothschild et al. linked financial agencies represent a dark cloud when it come to intervention on the scale of which I suspect Madam Lagarde’s visit is premised on. Oh, they are bodies that do indeed foster laudable causes but we may not all understand the inner workings of these agencies on the world stage and for certain agendas.

    Buhari did not bow in his brief 80’s tenure; if he doesn’t again, I pray we truly find an ingenious way out of this mess.
