    Nigeria is not better economically. There are 160 million + with GDP equating relatively to Ghana and that is a shame. I have been to Nigeria and there are only 3 places to be proud off. Bill Clinton, Bush also visited Ghana and other African Countries to improve its partnership so do not be deluded in your judgement of Nigeria. US has decreased its retail trading to 20% with Nigeria, I have a family member working for HSBC and Nigeria is one of the countries they refuse to do business with... Still the best country?? Do not get me wrong Nigeria is full of talent but that is not enough, you guys need to stick together instead of fleeing to different countries.

    Anyway welcome Anderson and I appreciate all your hard work in creating such good articles and pictures.. Keep it up!
