According to Friedrich Hayek, the law of unintended consequences is that actions of people, and especially of governments, always have effects that are unanticipated or "unintended."
A simpler analogy for my lazy generation is in #GameOfThrones Season 5 when Cersei gave the High Sparrow power hoping that he would use that power to get her perceived enemies off her back.
Eventually, the only way she could get out of his grip was to stroll from one end of town to the other in her birthday suit.
Back in the 1960s, our country, #Nigeria, had two economic corridors. These two corridors ran roughly alongside the old British rail lines.
Despite the NVNV thing, and despite that Ukpabi Asika did his level best to rebuild the East after the war, the end of the Gowon era put an end to all that, and the Eastern Economic Corridor was all but abandoned.
