The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a popular destination for many people around the world when it comes to leisure including many Nigerians. The country also boasts of a vibrant and diverse expatriate community based on the comfortable lifestyle obtainable there.
However, very few people realize the kind of transformation that has occurred in the country since the 1970s when it was formed.
According to Wikipedia, the UAE consists of seven emirates and was founded on 2 December 1971 as a federation. Six of the seven emirates (Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain and Fujairah) combined on that date. The seventh, Ras Al Khaimah, joined the federation on 10 February 1972. The seven sheikhdoms were formerly known as the Trucial States, in reference to the treaty relations established with the British in the 19th Century.
Dubai in Nigeria particular is an international hospitality and leisure hub with wondrous architecture and sights. See the shocking transformation it has witnessed in less than 3 decades.
This goes to show that with dedication and purposeful leadership, countries like Nigeria can achieve rapid infrastructural and economic developmemt.
unless what happen to Ghana under Jerry Lawrence will happen here in Nigeria….. all the old leaders will be killed and new ones will be install,except that,the leadership of this country will continue to rotate within and we’ll keep wallowing in corruption. Its our time…. its now or never
