This piece was insightful and undeniably true. Just wish you were able to probe these 1% on what/when/how the continent of Africa, and Nigeria in particular will emerge out of statism and entrenched corruption...Happy to notice that your trip was "flawless and delightful"

Thanks Femi. Not sure I used those words, exactly. Biut it was really good to meet you, and I hope all goes well at the Boat Club.
