African Leaders Do Not Believe In Continuing Their Predecessors’ Good Works – Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, yesterday, said that Nigeria has not been able to make progress because successive governments failed to continue with good policies put in place by their predecessors.
.
Also, former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, said that about 40 per cent of Africa’s non-land assets are held outside the continent, adding that Africans must repatriate such funds to form the fulcrum on which to build a large poll of international capital for the continent’s infrastructure development needs.
.
This came as Acting President Yemi Osinbajo urged Africa Finance Corporation, AFC to do more in providing necessary leadership towards mobilizing private capital for infrastructure development in the country, noting , “We will be relying on AFCs, especially our own DFIs to do much more; we will be relying on them to show much more leadership and to take greater risks.”
.
They spoke, in Abuja, yesterday, at a panel discussion on the 10 years of AFC, operations at the Infrastructure Summit.
.
Also speaking at the forum, Finance Minister, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun, said there was huge appetite globally to invest in Africa’s infrastructure, adding: “We need to properly package and showcase the opportunities.”
.
In his remarks, former President Obasanjo, said that the continent has been unable to develop due to the penchant of its leaders to discontinue the few things that had been done right. He noted that AFC had a “rough” beginning because of lack of understanding by political leaders who succeeded him.
.
Obasanjo also relived his tour of Singapore in an effort to unravel the secrets of the Singaporean success, with a view to applying same to the continent.
.
He said, “I remember taking 40 young and up-coming Africans to Singapore some years back. Lee Kuan Yew hadn’t written his book “from Third World to First World,” and we wanted him to tell us how he did it. We wanted to know the magic and Yew told us there was no magic.
.
“He said: There is no magic. We did a few things right and we continue to do them right. We in Africa have done a few things right. Our problem is that we don’t continue to do them right.
.
“Many things are wrong about Africa but a few are right. We should continue to do those things that are right.”

  7. Caro Daniele,andare al voto non è come giocare la schedina del totocalcio: non devi indovinare chi vince, ma indicare chi, tra tutti, porta avanti i progetti che ti sembrano più sensati. Se il tuo voto va a un partito che non raggiungerà il quorum, non importa perché tu avrai fatto il tuo dovere *verso te stesso*.Non votare un partito perché “tanto non vince” è un comportamento senza senso. Vota quelli in cui credi e lascia che sia il responso a dire chi vincerà. Comunque ne varrà la pena.Andrea

  8. That’s an expert answer to an interesting question

  9. This introduces a pleasingly rational point of view.

  10. – The very crux of your writing whilst appearing reasonable at first, did not sit perfectly with me after some time. Somewhere throughout the sentences you were able to make me a believer but just for a very short while. I nevertheless have a problem with your leaps in assumptions and you might do well to fill in those gaps. In the event that you actually can accomplish that, I could definitely end up being impressed.

  21. Kirjoitat ihan asiaa! Itselläni on valkaistu hammaskalusto kahteen otteeseen. Tämä kuitenkin siksi, että sain syntymälahjana oikeasti ruskean hammasluuston. En kuitenkaan kehu asiasta ihmisille tai oikeastaan kerro, ellei joku tule kysymään tai kehumaan hymyni valkoisuutta. Ei tulisi mieleenkään kehottaa jotakuta hankkimaan ko. operaatiota. Ruotsissa bloggarit saavat esim. ilmaista plastikkakirurgiaa. Kissie sai ilmaiseksi uudet silikonit rintoihinsa kunhan vaan muisti esitellä niitä blogissa. Kaipa se on seuraava aste täällä suomessakin..

  23. Great description of NDPH. I’ve suffered for 22 years now, and can’t really remember what it’s like to NOT have a headache.I’m intrigued by Prajeeth’s comment. Did Jesus give me this headache so I’d become religious? Or does he just not care that non-religious people are in pain?
