Flying is an exciting experience. You simply buy your ticket,…
Talking about riding the bull at the Rodeo
By Dr Aroms Aigbehi
I have been doing business in Europe and America for over 25 years. I have never been targeted for assassination. Not by a business rival and not even talking about government people. I still can travel freely to over 180 countries of the world, except my own country Nigeria. Why? Because I went to do business there to change lives.
I have be shot at several times, almost got kidnapped. jailed by the police, Lost money to crooks, flew on a plane that crashed a week later due to poor maintenance and many more. My spouse was locked indoor for an entire year because she couldnt go out without being kidnapped. I don’t know where in Europe or America you lock Foreigners indoor for an entire year. Investors are people. they have spouses and children.
I have never come across someone doing business in Nigeria that is having fun doing it. So if you have that great experience or know who does I really want to talk with you. We all could learn some lessons from you.
One of the reasons Europeans are more successful than us is they look at the problem and do a thorough analysis then port solutions to tackle the problems.
Africans like to whitewash the problem and hide it in public. But the public already know what the problem is, so why not face it and deal with it.
I can tell you all beautiful stories of how great it is to do business in Nigeria and I would be lying. I like to be real.
If you love to ride a bull, thank God Nigeria is available to do business. It is not for everyone out there.
