USA Africa Dialogue Series - 3rd letter to President Muhammad Buhari

3rd letter to President Buhari

Dear mr President  

 I hope you did not leave Otunba  Niyi Adebayo behind.he is the Minister of trade, investment and industry. For I did not notice his name in the beautiful and fantastic news report by  deji eliumoye   in the THISDAY NEWSPAPER titled "nigeria moves to attract foreign investment to the economy". Very very exciting news report Mr President, you have some good men no doubt. If i am to go by the topics to be deliberated upon. impressive. Those who packaged the talks for government deserve free lunch at any restaurant of their choice same with the reporter Deji elumoye.

  And somebody else,yewande sadiku the immediate past dg of nigeria investment promotion council, she did well. of all the the   MDAs  hers was rated number 2 second to dr ogbonnaya onu.then minister of science and tech.  Both of them should be with you in new york. I also think the heads of  nigeria's four unicorns should have tagged along to new york.  I see  Mark Zuckerberg is  going to be there and bill gates so I expect   the presidents of OPay. Paystack, Piggy Vest and Fluttewave would be there.  Then   Tony Elumelu's name is conspicuously absent. He has been making massive investment in the youth Of africa, the new york crowd can learn from his experience. I also notice that the minister of power is not mentioned/ i hope he is going to be in new york

  Mr President,  I learnt you are in New york for the 77th session of the  united nations general assembly  and on the 22nd  of September let me add 2022  the anniversary of the birth of  Michael Faraday, father of the all too often talked about electricity.!

Somehow it all takes my mind to   Obafemi Awolowo..let me explain the number 77  reminds me of 77 obafemi awolowo way,ikeja lagos,  Headquarters of the manufacturers association of nigeria and obafemi awolowo launched the unity party of nigeria on september 22 1978, with the symbol of a candle lighting up nigeria.    We had NEPA plc and people read plc to mean please light a candle! In 1979 om national television  whilst expecting the results of the 1979 electrician of which papa awolowo was a candidate we were brought face to face on national television a  a LIGHTED  CANDLE was blow out before our very eyes. It was the  NPN blowing the UPN AwAY/ That candle/awolowos candle cannot be blown is metaphysical.

At this material time some seem to be presenting  Nigeria as being in a precarious conduction  almost like "a candle in the wind" which is the title of a Television Drama by the famed laolu oguniyi. Should i also add the television and film industry should have been represented in the nigerian delegation to new york investment wise.because it's all happening in new york finance wise.and lastly  the Book publishers because new york   is  not only a financial center it is the publishing   and cultural  capital of usa, so the publishers should have been invited. Including segn rusewe   of the national council on arts, thank you mr president
