Security and the Rule of Law For Nigerian Enterprise Development and Revolution

Nigeria’s long history with conflict and bloodshed begins not long after its independence from British colonial rule in 1960. Six years later, Army officers executed the then Prime Minister and two of his cabinet colleagues in the country’s first of many coup d’etats. Political upheaval stoked social fires as religious, ethnic and regional disparities billowed over to create a climate of official persecution and brutal governance. The string of military takeovers continued into the ’90s and until the very end of the last century, when the first peaceful transition to civilian power brought back some degree of normalcy to a beleaguered nation.

Nigerian Infrastructure Development and the Enterprise Revolution – An African Perspective

Nigeria’s deplorable infrastructure situation came into the fore recently at an unlikely event.

The Startling Prophecies of Vanga

One winter’s night a phantom knight in full armour appeared in the village, entered her house and said: “The world is on the threshold of disaster. Millions of people will die. You will stand here and prophesy. Do not be afraid! I’ll tell you what you should say.” From there on even the all powerful visited her, including it is claimed Adolf Hitler who ‘departed a very sad man’. The date was January 1941. It was significant as the war at that point dragged in the USSR and USA, plunging tens of millions into death and slavery. As world events unfold more people are taking an interest in the predictions of the prophetess Vangelia Pandeva Dimitrova (Vanga).
