That was the era when Nigeria had started enjoying massive oil boom. The then president of Nigeria scoffed at them and asked,”Can anything come out of a sand?”. Fast forward, 30 years later and look at the two nations. Nigeria, even though it has made trillions of Dollars from her sales of oil, it is still suffering as a third world nation. Nigerians even take delight in visiting Dubai for shopping!
