“There are many investments that have been triggered with our money taken outside” – Ali Baba speaks on the Trend of Embezzlement in the Country



Veteran comedian, writer and motivational speaker, Ali Baba took to his Instagram page last night to bare his mind concerning the ugly trend of embezzlement that has plagued Nigeria in recent years. He reiterated that it would have been slightly better if the money stolen was invested into the Nigerian economy, rather the money will be taken outside into an economy that is already in good standing. In his words:

So you made some money from your country. Let’s not even talk about how you made it. You sneak the money out to another country. To oil their economy. Then you come back to Nigeria after stashing the money… to be lord over the people you stole blind. And because you have failed to provide proper education, the bulk of the people you stole from do not know their right from their left. So they hail you. Come to think of it, looks like it has always been part of the plan. DONT EDUCATE THEM SO THAT THEIR ASPIRATIONS CAN BE LIMITED OR NON EXISTENT. Now I get it. What does the establishment of a university do to the community it is situated in? The university will be built. That means labourers will work. The economy of the area will be activated for the better. Cement will be sold. Sand. Granite. Wood. Electrical equipment. Furniture. Food and drinks. Transportation. Health sector. Maternity. Markets. Churches. Mosques. Primary and secondary schools. Employment will mop up jobless citizens. Hotel and hospitality businesses… BUT NO. You made the money from Nigeria and decided it’s best to activate another economy in another country. I am using this university as an example… there are many investments that have been triggered with our money taken outside. Let’s think deep

    the so called looters have inferior complex issue there know that if the money is invested here the youth will definitely make a good life out of the invest. how do you expect someone with no certificate and has inferior complex issue to be a head of an organization. most of the leader lack integrity.

    I finally succumb to the fact that Nigeria is going no where positive. Nigeria is doomed, doomed doomed *sobbing*. IN a country when people are desperately hungry, hardworking people jobless and frustrated, some demons statch away monies, leaving it doing nothing, loosing and gaining value and degenerating. $48 million will give us 3 mega cassava processing plants with a minimum output of $2million profit per annum, over 100,000 persons employed. The greed level in Nigeria is unsummountable. I finally accept the obvious, my dear country is heading nowhere. I have lost all hope.
