It is now a norm for you to hear people of different background praising and almost worshipping imported things that they can easily get in their country. They praise that is been given to the imported stuffs is given not to emphasis on its quality because we import on a daily basis from China and you can agree that most a times their stuffs are not up to high quality. The praise is to emphasis on the fact that you had to travel from one country to another to get it, that you spent an insane amount of money on the stuff, a sum of money if well invested can change the world!
They give unimportant praises to you for your capabilities on importing stuffs. You gallantly receive the praise not knowing that those so called people are praising you for spoiling (derogating) their country’s economy, for creating unemployment, for discouraging people who manufacture those stuffs that you import in your country.
When you’re in a country like Nigeria and you still feel no shame in the fact that your country still import tooth pick! From China then something is wrong. Imagine such nonsense, with the unending list of engineering schools and engineers we have in this country we still can’t make our own tooth picks. It is just downright ridiculous to hear about how much people both high and low, rich and poor spend on small things like things they know that they can’t afford in the next years to come.
It is just bad that we (some) still import fish, potatoes, turkey, chicken, petroleum and toothpicks etc. I mean isn’t it bad enough that we still import things that we can actually and capable of producing in our backyard.
Just think about it then do something about it…
