It has been difficult for me to engage w/ largely dismissive criticisms of #Nigeria’s move to close its land borders with #Benin & #Niger to address rampant smuggling and #Benin’s systematic flouting of Ecowas trade protocols & other treaties signed w/ #Nigeria.
But I feel this issue is too important not to try to improve public understanding about what’s at stake and why the status quo was untenable. So, what follows is a #thread about border security & rules-based trade, which is what the border closure is about at its core.
I’m going to state upfront that I will not engage re this issue on this medium. Instead, I’ll be doing a Facebook Live on Monday w/ @EurasiaGroup colleague Willis Sparks @ 11am EST/5pm Lagos. Please send (constructive) questions w/ hashtag #NaijaBorder & we will address them.

I can't stop thinking about the Afrikaans university being build. White people mobilized 300 million amongst themselves. This uni is already under construction, and whites have yet again created an employment project worth 4,5 million. Dear black people.... (THREAD) stay with me!
Dear black people, whilst we are busy killing each other, white people are BUILDING THEMSELVES. Whilst we are busy violating, abusing & committing femicide, white people are BUILDING THEMSELVES. Whilst we are busy "shutting down" the country, white people are BUILDING THEMSELVES
Dear black people, whilst we are busy being "activists", "feminists" and so forth and so on, WHITE PEOPLE ARE BUILDING FOR THEMSELVES. Whilst we are busy "Thuma mina-ring", WHITE PEOPLE ARE BUILDING. Building generational wealth, a whole university and they are successful at it!
