In recent times, nothing captures Africa's poverty, lack of infrastructure & lack of vision like global sports. If you deep it, it's so mad.

For yesterday's UCL final, 60,000 Dorrmund fans travelled to London. Most of them came from Germany by road, train & air. The ease of travel around Europe for Europeans means most of them didn't have to suffer visa application troubles.

The infrastructure & foresight of their leaders aid travel across borders for as low as £51 (roughly N100k)

For those who don't understand the noise. Lemme do a small explainer. For the purpose of conducting a transparent election, INEC/Electoral Act introduced an innovation called Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS). This system was to be used to ensure that only duly registered Nigerians were able to vote. The BVAS machines were also to be used to transmit results directly from the polling units to a central server in Abuja, which was to be publicly displayed at the National Collation Centre

Pay attention to Tinubu's refusal to attend the NBA conference today. It would have been the first public comparison of the top contenders for next year's election. And his camp knew that it would expose how badly he compares to the others. So they sent his running mate This is exactly how they'll campaign - by deploying a basement strategy. They'll hide him from the public as much as possible & try to campaign through surrogates. They'll do this for 2 reasons.

In this video, @atiku talks about 3 things that are key.

1. Systemic reforms for the civil service & effective monitoring systems to reduce corruption in 1 of the places where it occurs - award of licences.

2. Reducing size of govt to reduce cost of govt & increase efficiency To achieve No 2, he'll have to adopt recommendations from the Orosanye report - reduce 263 of the statutory FG agencies to 161, abolish 38, merge 52 & turn 14 to departments in ministries. There are currently 541 Federal Government parastatals, commissions & agencies.

Now that I have your undivided attention, why @atiku? It's simple. Nigeria is pretty much at the same place it was in in 1999 - an economy in tatters; a govt with a revenue problem, fiscal irresponsibility & monetary ruin; a pariah nation - in this case we are a laughing stock. We have an economy no one in investing in, a badly divided nation, rising inflation, skyrocketing cost of living, record unemployment and insecurity on never before seen levels.
