I have read so many offensive comments about Nigeria. The truth is that Nigeria is a good country with good people. What many Nigerians do outside the country do not in any way represent the majority good people of the country. There are many scammers and hackers across different countries just like there are from Nigeria. There are insecurity challenges in Nigeria just like there are in many other countries. But overall, Nigeria is a good country and it's worth to explore it's goodness. However, when coming, try to stay alert and get in touch with good people

This was only implemented so the corrupt political & money elite can hide their shady deals without anyone being aware of; another Nigerian digital scam.

Typically the infrastructure is not in place. Quelle surprise digital transformation strategy not in place.
Furthermore the basic power supply infrastructure isn’t there alongside blockchain so how will this work
Baby razor blade scenarios there will be blood before this works anywhere near properly
