Even Jesus cannot save Nigeria's economy - Comedian Alibaba

Nigerian Economy doesn’t seem to be getting any better and Nigerians are beginning to lose hope.



Many who believed in the recent government are beginning to fear if the change they voted for would ever happen.

The situation of the country is really deteriorating and the worse of it all is the issue of insurgency summing up with bad economic situation.

Ace comedian, Alibaba is not a fan of PMB’s government at all, and he doesn’t stop himself from letting the world know.

In a recent post, she shared his thought about the recent hardship the country is sadly going through.

In his words: “Did we build more roads to take care of the millions of cars and transportation needs? Did we improve the services of the police force, did we use the money to build better hospitals?

Did the new industries create more jobs? Did we improve our power supply? Did we have stronger and modified laws that made sure that people who broke the laws were punished adequately to discourage others?

Did we tidy up our pension scheme so that people are assured that they did not need to steal to assure themselves of better retirement? What have we done to reduce cost of administration? What kind of enabling environment has government created to grow the economy?

What have we done to ensure the right people got elected? Have we developed our tourism potentials to attract foreign investors and revenues? Better banks? What have we done to curb corruption?

What steps have we taken in the direction of housing? Who has security votes helped? We have failed to do all of that… ‘NOW OUR ALMIGHTY’ crude prices that were our saving grace are low. The production is even nearly nonexistent, thanks to militants. There are backlog of owed salaries, uncompleted projects, dead refineries, high unemployment and huge numbers of the unemployable. We are borrowing even Jesus cannot save us unless we create new sources of revenue. What do I know? I am an ordinary rip-cracker, I dey look,” the comedian jested.”


The economy will remain like this for a loooooooooooooong while. Because the strings that pull us into dire straits are still pulling us even much stronger. How did we get here? We were making so much from oil and neglected all other sources of revenue. We did not only neglected those sources of revenue, we did not invest the revenue from oil in infrastructural development of the country. We were not futuristic in our planning either. Did we increase the number of hostels in our universities to accommodate the new numbers of students? Pay teachers well? Did we build more roads to take care of the millions of cars and transportation needs? Did we improve the services of the police force? Did we use the money to build better hospitals? Did the new industries create more jobs? Did we improve our power supply? Did we have stronger and modified laws that made sure that people who broke the laws were punished adequately to discourage others? Did we tidy up our pension scheme so that people are assured that they did not need to steal to assure themselves of better retirement? What have we done to reduce cost of administration? What kind of enabling environment has government created to grow the economy? What have we done to ensure the right people got elected? Have we developed our tourism potentials to attract foreign investors and revenues? Better banks? What have we done to curb corruption? What steps have we taken in the direction of housing? Who has security votes helped? We have failed to do all of that... NOW OUR ALMIGHTY crude prices that were our saving grace are low. The production is even nearly non existent, thanks to militants. There are backlog of owed salaries? Uncompleted projects. Dead refineries. High unemployment and huge numbers of the unemployable. We are borrowing. EVEN JESUS CAN NOT SAVE US unless we create new sources of revenue. What do I know SEF? Shebi I am an ordinary comedian? I dey look
