      Thank you oh! When we don’t have modern corporations that focus on legitimate businesses yet. Maybe they have one or two Nigerians on their team (like most other companies in the world), and CNN has termed them a Nigerian business. If only they would classify Goldman Sachs, PepsiCo, Facebook, and other businesses that have Nigerians on their payroll as “Nigerian corporations”. Lies!
