WITH only some 50 years of independent national existence, Nigeria is a country reeking with "new money." The overwhelming proportion of the millionaires and billionaires in the country are "nouveau-riche;" they became rich literally "overnight." We are talking of people whose wealth does not go beyond a generation.
Indeed, the fantastic wealth of Nigerian billionaires like Femi Otedola scarcely goes beyond ten/fifteen years. Not only does Nigeria's wealthy few have a short history, they often have a short future as well. The money comes "miraculously" and goes just as "miraculously."

In my youth, S.B. Bakare was the celebrated Nigerian tycoon. Highlife stars and juju musicians eulogised him in their records. But ask a young Nigerian today who S.B. Bakare is, and I can bet my bottom dollar he has never heard of him.
S.B. has fallen off the radar and so has his wealth. It is not identifiable by any major industry or enterprise. His descendants may still be in litigation over the dregs of his estate, but undoubtedly it is nothing to write home about again. Certainly, nobody is singing about S.B. Bakare today. There are now new pretenders to his throne.

New dawn
Time was when wealthy Nigerians built something, developed something, or made something. At that time, the rich were truly captains of industry. Alhaji Sanusi Dantata made his fortune in the era of the groundnut pyramids in the North; buying and shipping them for export.

Sir Odumegwu Ojukwu had Nigeria's largest fleet of inter-city "mammy-wagons." He also imported "panla" (dried fish) on a large scale. Sir Mobolaji Bank-Anthony had a tanker fleet and a pioneering charter airline. Emmanuel Akwiwu, hauled oil-rigs and supplies for British Petroleum. Chief Timothy Adeola Odutola produced bicycle tires for the growing army of Nigerian bike-riders.
But thanks to oil, much of Nigerian wealth is no longer the product of such ventures. Yes, we have billionaires like Ibrahim Dasuki and Mike Adenuga who can still be rightfully described as highly enterprising. But even more significantly, we have tycoons who came into wealth through "wuru-wuru" and "mago-mago." These men are hardly Nigeria's Bill Gates.

On the contrary, they don't have a clue what to do with their dubious wealth, and they are ignorant about wealth-creation. As such, they add little of value to the Nigerian project. Their praises may be sung today by their horde of parasitical hangers-on, but they will not be remembered for good when they are gone. As mysteriously as their wealth materialised, so will it vanish.
These men became rich through some of the following tried and tested methods, which can be relied upon to lead to one's inclusion in the Nigerian Book of Irrelevant Rich Men. If you want to get rich quick, here is the Nigerian blueprint. But please, don't tell anyone I "wiki-leaked" this highly-classified national secret to you.

Rob a ban
This strategy has gone through some transition. Bank-robbers used to be men of the underworld who held banks hostage at gunpoint and then made off with the cash. However, it was soon recognised that this approach has distinct disadvantages. You might get arrested and jailed. Even worse, you might get shot. It also became apparent that banks carry limited amounts of cash.
Therefore, a successful bank robbery of this violent kind might only land you perhaps 50 million naira tops, which is not even enough to buy or build a house in Banana Island. There is a better way to rob a bank with far limited risk. Simply establish a bank.

When you establish a bank, you can rob the bank every day without a gun. When people deposit money in your bank, they don't know that they are handing over their life-savings to a thief. You then rob the bank you establish in a number of imaginative ways.

For example, you can lend money to your bank and then charge it a very high interest-rate. Better still, you can borrow billions from your bank and simply forget to pay it back. Or, you can use the money deposited in your bank to buy houses and then rent them out as branches to your bank at exorbitant prices.
This approach is guaranteed to make you a few billion naira until the EFCC policemen come calling. When they do, you can quickly fall sick, spend a few months in Deluxe Hospital Hotel and then relocate to your village to enjoy your wealth, never to be heard of again.

Join the PDP.
This one is a sure banker. As a member of the greatest party in the history of Africa, you will be given a credit-card to spend Nigeria's oil wealth. If you are not getting enough attention in the party, make a lot of noise. Abuse Tinubu on the pages of the newspapers and call Buhari an idiot.
Insist that Goodluck Jonathan should not only run for re-election unopposed in 2015, there should be a constitutional amendment to make him a life-president. This is a tell-tale sign that you are hungry; and the powers-that-be will soon invite you to "come and chop."

As a distinguished member of this great party, the opportunities open for you to set yourself up for life are considerable. For example, you can start collecting billions for petroleum subsidy and simply not import any petrol whatsoever. You can get the government to change all car license-plates nationwide; and then become the sole supplier of the new license-plates.
You can ask the president to make you the sole importer and distributor of diesel for the entire country. Of course, this might also entail that you become the chairman of his re-election campaign, to which you duly make a handsome contribution. Alternatively, you can ask to be chairman of the Nigerian Ports Authority.

Nobody will bat an eyelid when, within a matter of months, you have a fleet of cars, have two or three houses in Asokoro, and own four hotels in Dubai.
You may even kick out your wife and marry a fourteen-year-old "Suzie" befitting your new status. You have arrived as one of Nigeria's celebrated rich men. But keep your eyes on the ball. Don't get distracted or carried away. The enemies of Mr. President must always remain your enemies.
Start a mega-church

This one is pure genius. Peradventure you lose your job or fall on hard times. Don't go into depression. Just start a church. Make it a purpose-built church. Think of something that men need. Tell them you have the anointing to provide it. Tell them whoever wants to be a billionaire should come to your church. Start a few of your messages with "Thus says the Lord." Then teach your congregation the everlasting principles of sowing and reaping.
Make sure they understand that if they really want God to bless them financially, they first have to give you as much money as possible. Create a special prayer group for millionaires and billionaires. That way, if they get any new government contract they will attribute it to the efficacy of your prayers and credit something big into your bank account. Tell everybody to give you their "first-fruits."

That is a code word for their entire January salaries. Then come up with imaginative offerings to collect, such as "prophet's offering," (you, of course, being the prophet); "Father, Son and Holy Ghost offerings;" "Jesus will do it offering."
Very soon, you will be flying your own private jet to preach your gospel in Ilesha; you will be wearing white Armani suits and jerry-curling your hair; you will be collecting gate-fees for new years' eve services; billionaire thieves and robbers will be queuing up to see your private-secretary on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway. In short, you will be living large. For good measure, you will also be slapping demons out of poor bewitched damsels with impunity.
Become a mule.

There is high demand for this job. There are many politicians and men of timber and caliber looking for mules; men who can keep stolen money for them, or smuggle it to safe havens abroad. This is a highly lucrative job because for every ten billion naira you smuggle, you can pocket one billion. Don't get greedy and come to the conclusion that you can make off with the entire loot.
That is a sure way to have assassins on your tail. Before they kill you, they will first break your legs. If you are caught while smuggling money abroad, you can easily escape and come back home dressed as a woman. Then you can get a national merit award.

If you are a mule for a president or a governor, you are set up for life. You will get 24 hours military protection so that no petty thief can come near you. You will get to travel all over the world. You will get free medical check-ups, so that you don't just fall down one day and die.

That would be disastrous, especially if your sponsor does not know exactly where you kept his loot, or if he does not have the password to the secret account you opened for it in the Bahamas in the name of Ali Baba.

I remember the story of a former Nigerian Head of State who allegedly kept a billion dollars with a mule. Then the mule had a stroke. Every effort was made to get him to say just a few words, namely the number of the account where the loot was stashed; but to no avail.

After a few months, the man died. This "national" calamity has prompted the review of the conditions of service of mules. There are now two new, strictly prohibited, clauses. Mules must not have strokes, and under no circumstances should a mule presume to die. If he does, his generations yet unborn will suffer for it.
(P.S./N.B. If you have perfected other Nigerian approaches to quick wealth than these, don't hesitate to let me know. I promise to keep the matter strictly confidential.)

The Monopolistic Problem In Nigeria

The price of a bag of cement jumped from about N1000 per bag to over N2000 per bag just after the 2011 presidential election that was bankrolled by Dangote, the 2013 richest black man in the world. Importation of cement was practically banned for everyone else, except the very few, soon after the 2011 election. Cement is the biggest source of income of Dangote. Please connect the dots!!!!!

50kg of cement is about $12 per bag in Nigeria and about $3 (retail) or less than $1 (online) in the USA. Nigeria has large deposit of limestone and other materials required for production of cement. Yet, Nigerians are forced to buy cement more expensive than it costs in the richest country in the world - the USA.

Now that Dangote has been given a Licence to build a refinery,
Please guess what will happen to petrol price!

When Dangote finishes his refinery, the good news is that many Nigerians will be employed and we may stop importing refined products. The bad news is that Nigerians may buy refined petroleum products at higher prices than average Americans. Otherwise, Dangote will not make enough out of Nigerians to remain the richest black man on earth.

Dangote thrives in truck business that thousands of Nigerians fail simply because what he loses from trucks/trailers he gains double from other areas - cement, monopolies etc.

One thing he deserves credit for - he is not a spendthrift, and he is very shrewd.

It takes more than good reasoning to understand the intrigues of business sense all over the world. It's not peculiar to Nigeria alone. Cases abound of US govt blocking many monopolies ahead of time. It's like a taboo for them. It is also because Researchers, Scholars and Patriots form the bulk of their policy makers.
The links below is still very fresh. US govt blocked merger of airline merger using the court. For every one thousand jobs created by a monopolist, millions others have been lost in reality. The biggest loser for every monopoly initiative is govt earning through taxes, rates, goodwill and social services. Unfortunately, our own leaders cared no hoot.

Importantly, our civil servants should know better and ensure that monopoly is blocked from infancy. Do they know? The civil servants' collaboration to success of monopolies is our collective burden.
Monopolistic tendencies were the reasons our railway system, power, industrialization, etc never worked. If Nigerians can take stock of number of lives lost to road accidents due to pressure on road because of induced collapse of rail transportation, they would understand, the folly of aligning with any monopolistic agenda.

Definitely, another govt will come in, that will grant refinery licenses to other few wealthy ones like Adenuga and emerging rich(rogue) politicians. They will always be few. They will always hold our politics to ransome until we know how to protect our freedom.

GEJ and Dangote - the connection to Riches Re: Dangote Hails Jonathan’s Policies
Dangote is now worth $21 billion - due to "favorable policies of President Goodluck Jonathan" - quoted from Dangote's mouth - please see below.

The same policies that impoverish millions of Nigerians transform Dangote into multi-billionaire overnight - in less than ten years without any invention or discovery. I believe those "favorable policies" include (a) giving monopoly of rice importation to Dangote leading to a bag of rice now selling for between ten to twelve thousand naira from the previous price of N6,000 per bag. Every grain of rice imported by anyone other than Dangote is seized by the Nigerian Customs Officers that now act as financial security agents of Dangote with no thanks to Jonathan and his anti-Nigerian policies ; (b) giving monopoly of cement importation and marketing to Dangote and co, leading to selling of a bag of cement for about two thousand naira when the same commodity should not have cost more than N500....... the count of such anti-people policies is endless.

Have your say!
