For the past one year or so, every Sunday morning, I watch this program on Discovery Family for two hours called "How it's made". Now here's the interesting thing about this programme. It gives out, in visual and practical details, how everything in the world is made. From cars, super production machines and everything in between...including production of canned foods. Everything!
You know why I got interested? You know I listen to our politicians talk about industrialising Nigeria and the model of development they will use in achieving all of that. In truth, these guys are lying. Honestly, if you have ever believed anyone of them, then you need to travel to the industrialised nations of this world and comprehend why they are so called.
Nigeria and her different states possess enough resources to become an industrial nation. But look at our system, look at the incentives for production and taxes, it is not encouraging. So many Nigerians have massive production companies abroad. They produce there and import into Nigeria.
Oh you thought Nigerians don't own big companies abroad? Think again.
Well, I think we can begin to look towards individual solutions. I love Anambra State and what her people have achieved. You know, we have men who defiled all odds to stand up and succeed beyond any government bureaucracy. They have models that works and they are the ones we need to reshape the destiny of this state and nation. Whether they are already in government now or getting the required attention remains to be answered.
But if you can, do spend just 30 minutes next Sunday from around 9am to watch this programme.
Till we get to the Promised Land, I shall be waiting for when you will pass me a glass of water and thank God for the gift of grace for the race.
