Buhari Must Develop Nigeria —World Bank Consultant

A Consultant to the World Bank, Olu Ajakaiye, has said President Muhammadu Buhari, and
subsequent governments in the country must
develop Nigeria, even if it meant stealing ideas
from other countries. Prseident Muhammadu Buhari, Ajakaiye, who is also President of Nigerian
Economic Society, stated this in his keynote
address at the 2017 edition of The Bullion Lecture
organised by the Centre for Financial Journalism. According to him, many first world nations have
stolen their way to development. He said the government must not leave
development for the markets to handle, but
combine all instruments, positions, variables and
policies to drive growth and development. Ajakaiye said: “Let us, therefore, not be under any
illusion and say the market will do it. They have to
make sure they provide the market, whatever it
takes, including stealing from other countries. “The developed systems that we have now were
as a result of resources taken from here, and they
are ahead. Their government didn’t say we would
be nice guys, we would not go and steal. They
carried our people, young people, valuable
people, and they now established the first world.”
