Nigerian Politicians Are Very Insane, They Kill Dreams, I’ll Never Do Business Here Again Says Virgin Atlantic Owner.



The rich international businessman, Richard Branson, has lambasted the crop of leaders we have in Nigeria for their high level greed which, according to him, is killing big brands wishing to do business with the government of the country, for the growth of Nigeria’s economy.
Below is the revelations by Mr. Branson on his experience in Nigeria…
The chairman of Virgin Atlantic said: “we have virgin’s ill-fated footsteps by setting up a new airline in Africa in conjunction with Nigerian government, the details of the doomed attempts to crack the Nigerian market in the 2000s is better imagined. We put together a very good airline, the first airline in West Africa that was ever IOSA/IATA operational safety audit accredited but unfortunately it got tied down to the politics of the country…we led the airlines for 11 years…
“We fought daily battle against government agents who wanted to daily make fortune from us, politicians who saw the government 49% as a meal to seek for all kinds of favour, watchdogs (regulatory body) that didn’t know what to do and persistently asking for bribes at any point. Nigeria people are generally nice but the politicians are very insane…that may be irony because the people make up the politicians.
“But those politicians are selfish, we did make N3billion for the federal government of Nigeria during the joint venture, realising that the government didn’t bring nothing to the table/partnership except dubious debts by the previous carrier, Nigeria Airways. The joint venture should have been the biggest African carrier by now if the partnership was allowed to grow, but the politicians KILLED it.
Nigeria is a country we SHALL NEVER consider to doing business again..”

Sorry, that's what we are facing here ooohhh. They have killed the economy in pursuit of their individual interest and still campaign for a sustainable economy. I really missed Umar Musa Yaradua he made me to understand that a good lead can come from any religion, tribe/zone. may his soul rest in perfect peace, what we have now as president is just a human statue with 1st class in condolence visit. Sorry Nigerians.
