Nigeria's Competitive Advantage Over The Rest Of The World
#1
Nigeria has some competitive advantages over the rest the world. It’s rather painful that the country don’t take advantage of that as it should. We let foreigners come in and exploit us.

I’ll try to list some of them below:
The country is big and populated.

I know there are other big countries in the world, but the size of Nigeria gives it an advantage over so many other countries of the world. We've got that numerical strength. If you have a product or service to sell to Nigeria, you have over 170 million people as your target market. Imagine having just 1 percent of the population as your client. That's what the likes of MTN are enjoying.
There are diverse cultures right within Nigeria.

According to wikipedia “There are over 521 languages that have been spoken in Nigeria”. You don't necessarily have to travel outside the country to understand how people of other cultures reason. Right from within Nigeria, you can get other people's view to things; I mean you will experience culture shock! (You can come along on a Christian Mission Trip if you want to).

The presence of raw materials.

If you live in Nigeria, you very well know this. We have so much that can give us much more. We've got oil, cocoa, coal, iron ore, rubber, solar... in fact the question is: what don't we have? I still don't understand why we are looking at oil alone. Major projects such as bridges and roads were done with cocoa money.
Technology is evolving.

I made a terrible mistake about 15 years ago. I was introduced to programming at a very young age. After that I learnt web design. But I left it believing that the web design world is already too crowded, I've got to find something else. It took me about 10 years to realize my fatal error. I am back coding web apps now. Imagine I kept doing that since the past 15 years. So, you can take advantage of the evolving technology.
There are many problems to solve.
[Image: main-qimg-fc8ecacf99a82d335f32cd7dcd363c...00x169.jpg]
Solutions to problems is an advantage. There are my problems that needs solution in Nigeria. The things is if you can successfully translate what works in other countries to Nigeria, you will become wealthy. Sometimes I just wish I have a USB powered clipper so that I can just connect it to my laptop when I need to shave. I guess you know why… see the image below.
You can learn things for free and do them for a fee.
[Image: main-qimg-1cf9dfc10acfede3c52ba84b58635aa8-300x200.png]
This is one of the best times to be alive. If you love technology, you can hook up to the internet and learn an awful lot for free. This knowledge will translate to money for you since most people aren't really learning anything new. And you know what, people will always pay for ignorance.
You can start a business without any form of registration.
[Image: main-qimg-714a9357f9542117beffa3a50609a98b-300x200.png]
I am not saying you should go this way, but you can. Very well yes. There are establishments such as schools who only registered their business after they have been in business for some years. If the business had failed, they would have opted out without losing the capital they spent on paper work. You can't do that in most places.
Talent is everywhere.

In fact I almost captioned this as labour is cheap, but I don't like to say that. In Nigeria, there are very skillful and extremely talented people you can hire for very little. They will beat your expectations if you give them the opportunity. Sometimes all they want is an environment where they can demonstrate their skills.
I can go on and on. Nigeria is indeed blessed, but like I said above, the blessings are not being utilized.
