@deezer234 @elharsh Lmfaoo okay. Since you insist!
@deezer234 @elharsh Nigeria is a compound

There’s a tenant who just moved there with his 36 wives and 200 kids
The man is into the business of selling palm oil and with time he grew, he is now producing and selling wholesale in the market so he makes cumulatively 500k in a month...
@deezer234 @elharsh Things were going good by a his standard - cause we all know 500 k ain’t gonna do much- and now there are more kids (population+) and there are calls for more wives (creation of states).. Some of his wives who put in more work actually requested for 13% cut from the 500k profit..
@deezer234 @elharsh They got it, even though from time to time their sons will sneak up and burst the jerry cans for a scoop here and there but they got along just fine.

Now the chief reason why this man makes 500 k is because he has a customer who pays for large supplies (USA)...
@deezer234 @elharsh Tides have changed and the once trusted customer is now biggest competitor in the market alongside other established competitors (OPEC)
@deezer234 @elharsh In a market where you and the business clique sells 100,000 jerry cans cummulatively you now have this new guy who can produce and supply 40,000 at once, what do you think will happen? Prices will start falling like dominoes because there’s more supply than demand...
@deezer234 @elharsh So now the price is cutdown and our Oga the breadwinner is now turning 400k profit for like two months, in the next three months Oga is bringing 350k.

Note: 7 more kids were added to the 200 kids despite the reduction in earnings.
@deezer234 @elharsh The wives and kids now getting more constrained with the finances started asking questions.
Then he narrated to them what happened, they had not saved, they didn’t utilize their space and family size to be productive and they depend literarily on buying stuff outside.
@deezer234 @elharsh so as time goes, they started falling in debt, they do not even know how to weather the storm because there’s no savings and the only job the man and his family ever knew was the business of selling palm oil.
@deezer234 @elharsh Oh I missed the part where criminals (Boko Haram, kidnappers, ISWAP) constantly attack his house, beat the shit out his kids, commit atrocities occasionally because the gate man and the gate needs fixing.
@deezer234 @elharsh So now what happens if you were brought in? Here’s Buhari’s story so judge.
Buhari came in post-2015, a month later the 36 wives need their monthly allowance & he looked in all the bank accounts, withdrew the 2k here & there to pay salary(Note: 2k represents $2bn left in the ECA)
@deezer234 @elharsh So he got to work, got new padlock to secure the house, got some of his healthy and willing kids to till the farm and plant the maize for harvest season.
The house is relatively secured & he kept an eye on the production line of the palm oil to reduce theft...
@deezer234 @elharsh It is already bad that you - a big family man - produce lesser than your peers, what takes the icing is that some of your kids are now taking from the Jerry cans themselves so he had to engage them & keep an eye on things so that’s why you see relative peace in Niger Delta..
@deezer234 @elharsh As more food baskets roll in the kitchen, more money roll in the account and then the domestic issues are now sorted. From paying Pensions to the Old mother - in-laws to paying workers to paying electrician to change some of the bad sockets and bulb in the house.
@deezer234 @elharsh Out of the little earnings he paid civil engineers to pave his front yard and right outside the fence a car wash stand was erected with water tanks erected to supply sustained water for profit and water for car wash in order to increase earning capacity...
@deezer234 @elharsh Some of the younger ones are now getting restless, they need to be engaged but they are still wobbly and rough on the edges, they have the potentials but they just need a little fine tuning, so Buhari declared “they need to be sharpened” (N-power)...
@deezer234 @elharsh The net didn’t capture all the kids (that wasn’t the intention), but somehow they got along fine, then Buhari also thought to himself, some of his female daughters have shown leaning towards trade so he encouraged them with some startup capital. (TraderMoni, FarmerMoni)..
@deezer234 @elharsh He also noticed some also have a thing for tech/automation, stuff kids do like “powering winds on a blue bucket via battery powered motor” so Buhari said okay, why don’t we give them something they can use to complete their science project (Aso Villa Demo day, 7 Ict Hubs)
@deezer234 @elharsh Now things are looking up generally on the economic side and the ex is now back to take it from there.
We told the man Atiku, shift my nigger and we shifted him on

@deezer234 @elharsh Anyways being close minded is not sexy, being open minded to learning (not to bullshit) is the new sexy.
@elharsh you blocked me because you are afraid to learn.
