You’ll know in just a minute! Stay with us, we’ll be right back.
Welcome back. This is BBC special edition of Phenomenon Extraordinaire titled “From Third World to Wonder World”. Years ago, Bernard Siegal said, “No matter what the statistics say, there is always a way.” The citizens of this wonder nation have proved him right time and again. In fact, years ago it was predicted that this same country would have disintegrated. But, on the contrary, as we can now see, it has become a wonder to behold! The strategies they used to become a developed nation simply don’t add up, going by just the facts. It defies all the so-called theories of economic development. It is definitely the 8TH WONDER of the world! However, what is apparent is that they discovered what works best for them and they have applied it to economic development and nation-building.
They had a perfect vision of where they wanted to go.
They allowed themselves to imagine freely and were able to come up with many surprising alternatives. As a nation, they have designed an alternative political institution attuned to the needs of their society. It is called the G3 government. It is also interesting to note that over 70 years ago, on September 21, 1966, at an ad hoc constitutional conference, their military head of state presented the possibility of a new political system. According to him, “This is an entirely new arrangement which will be peculiar to Nigeria [Newnigeria’s former name] and which has not yet found its way into any political dictionary.”
And G3 government is exactly that!
Some of the other surprising alternatives they have created in the process of nation-building are the E3 economy, the H3 education, the A3 agriculture, the M3 media, the S3 society, the F3 football/sports, the E3 environment, the A3 arts/entertainment, the H3 healthcare, the SC3 science and the T3 technology. By now you should know who these people are. This is BBC. Stay with us. We are going to take a short break and we’ll be back in just a moment!
And welcome back to this special edition of Phenomenon Extraordinaire, titled, “From Third World to Wonder World.”
Today’s headlines in newspapers the world over scream:
“Newnigeria The tax haven turns 80!”
“Newnigeria The investors’ sanctuary turns 80!”
“Newnigeria The trigger of Africa turns 80!”
“Newnigeria The 8TH wonder of the world turns 80!”
One particularly interesting headline reads, Cameroon returns Bakassi to Newnigeria as a goodwill gesture to commemorate its 80th independence anniversary. It’s quite amazing, wouldn’t you say? The citizens of New Nigeria have redefined everything, both locally and globally. Their ingenuity has finally paid off in a positive way.
They have successfully reproduced heaven on earth in their society. Sorry, we have to interrupt this programme for some breaking news. Stay with us as we go back to the BBC Broadcasting House in London.
This is BBC breaking news. A group of New Nigerian businessmen and women have just bought controlling shares in 10 multinational organisations. The organisations are Amazon, Mercedez Benz, Apple, Microsoft, Google, Visa, Facebook, Tencent, SAP and AOL Time-Warner. Speculations are that this group of Newnigerians, under the name Naigacorp Plc, intends to buy up a total of at least 12 multinationals listed on the New York Stock Exchange.
In case you don’t know who the new Nigerians are, they are citizens of the Federal Republic of New Nigeria, formerly known as Nigeria. The New Nigerians have done the impossible yet again!
We will bring more news to you as the events of the biggest acquisition ever unfold. Stay with us as we go back to our special coverage of this wonder nation of new Nigeria on Phenomenon Extraordinaire! Back to you, Femi.
Thank you, Jane Lane. This country, my parents’ homeland, is indeed a phenomenon and the 8TH Wonder! It never ceases to cause people to wonder. They consistently have the WOW effect on people they meet all over the world.
This great nation was able to achieve all this in last 20 years using new development strategies.
It was able to quicken rural development through the decentralization of government and energy, using microelectronic technology. They found a way around their energy crisis and now they use low-cost, non-polluting renewable energy. They have harnessed the power of solar energy like no other nation.
New Nigeria, without a doubt, is the 8TH Wonder of the world. What has happened in this country in just a few years is impossible to explain. It is nothing short of a miracle!
Wonders have become an art for the New Nigerians and they have just painted their masterpiece in the 8TH Wonder!
