Traditionalism vs Internationalism in Nigeria

Traditionalism vs Internationalism in Nigeria

People are divided when determining a forward path for Nigeria.

Nigeria is a country that is in dire need of repair. The infrastructure is crumbling, the economy is in shambles, and the political system is plagued by corruption. The people of Nigeria are suffering, and the country is in desperate need of help. Nigeria has a population of over 200 million people, and the vast majority of them are living in poverty. The country is also home to a large number of refugees and internally displaced persons, as well as a significant number of child soldiers.

The security situation in Nigeria is also very precarious, as the country is plagued by a number of armed conflicts, including the Boko Haram insurgency and Islamic State. All of these factors have contributed to making Nigeria one of the most unstable and dangerous countries in the world.

Many believe Nigeria is a hotbed of instability and violence.

The international community often looks at Nigeria with a sense of trepidation and concern. This is due in large part to the headlines that often come out of the country. Mass murders, terrorist attacks, pollution, environmental destruction, poverty and hunger are all too common in Nigeria. This has led many to believe that the country is a hotbed of instability and violence.

Nigerians who travel abroad or move to other countries have the opportunity to see how those countries operate and how they differ from Nigeria. This can be a valuable experience, as it can help them to understand other cultures and perspectives. Additionally, it can provide them with new skills and knowledge that they can bring back to Nigeria. It is an eye opening engagement for most, and they are left wondering why Nigeria has not adapted the solutions from other countries.

Adebola is a successful entrepreneur and business leader.

Adebola Ismail Akindele is a Nigerian business strategist, entrepreneur and philanthropist. He is the Director of Courteville Business Solutions Plc, which provides information technology, consulting and outsourcing services. Adebola was born in Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria. He is a graduate of the University of Lagos, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration. Adebola is a successful entrepreneur and business leader. He has over 30 years of experience in the information technology and business process outsourcing industry. He is a highly respected business strategist and thought leader. He is the founder of the Adebola Akindele Foundation.

His experience has led him to conclude, and caution against importing foreign models of business growth in Nigeria’s economic climate. Him and other experts believe that the Nigerian business environment is peculiar, and Nigerians need to learn indigenous models to grow their businesses, he doesn’t know of any foreign economic theory that has worked. This bold statement, complimenting his book launch “Musings Of The Muse” will obviously turn a lot of heads, as many may not see things his way.

Other countries are constantly updating their concepts and practices.

At the end of the day it is up to all Nigerians to decide which path to take. Do we continue the Nigerian way concept? Do we stick to traditional methods of operation and conduct? Will we continue to learn from our own mistakes? The answers to these questions are debatable. Other countries are constantly updating their concepts and practices as new technology arises, and as new research is conducted. Efficiency, profitability and sustainable operations are conducted on a daily basis. Choosing not to learn from their achievements and mistakes, and failing to adapt accordingly, could potentially lead to a nation’s downfall.

The country is indeed in shambles. Technically, every sector of the country is brutally affected: economy, security, education, health, among others. The rate of deterioration of the country’s economy is seriously alarming. Things shouldn’t be worse than this. Nobody deserves these.

I can say the whole country is in shambles. Everything is regressing, no where is safe and we are not learning from our mistakes. Due to Mass murders, terrorist attacks, pollution, environmental destruction we are facing other country are seeing us with a sense of trepidation. We need to learn from all these developed country and try to make things up

It’s easy to realise that corruption is a crucial contributing element in Nigeria’s downward spiral into instability, poverty, and evil vices. In my opinion, the most effective strategy would be to study and then implement strategies that are used in other countries to address problems of the same kind.

I think we know of internationalism, but then traditionalism can also play a huge role in our business enterprises in Nigeria. Seeing that foreign policies haven’t helped our economy

Only God can save us from the widespread and pervasive corruption that plagues Nigeria, which has led, among other things, to the theft of funds by one individual and the diversion of funds intended for other purposes. Even the citizens of Nigeria are complicit in this dishonest behaviour.

Concern and trepidation are common emotions conveyed by members of the world community while looking towards us because of the news stories that are frequently reported to have originated from within the country, which is true.

In my own opinion, corruption has deeply ingrained itself into the structure of the Nigerian government. Whether internationalism or traditionalism, only Jesus can provide a remedy to the issues that we’re currently facing.

The security sector in Nigeria is also particularly fragile because of the various armed conflicts that afflict the country. These armed conflicts include the Boko Haram insurgency and the Islamic State.

I really wish to imagine that the challenge we are facing is one of governance, and that this challenge is what has led a significant number of young people to believe that unethical activities are the norm in today’s society.

Our people who moved to other nations or travelled outside of the country can better understand those countries’ government systems and how they contrast with those of Nigeria. They might have a better understanding of other cultures and points of view due to this experience, making it a potentially worthwhile opportunity.

I would want to believe that the problem encountering us is a leadership problem, and this has influenced a lot of youth to think corrupt practices are the order of the day.

Even if we step up to international practices, are we all ready to embrace the change?

I would love to read more about Adebola’s success story

As new scientific discoveries are made and new technologies are developed, nations outside Nigeria continually modernise their ideas and methods. Daily, we ensure that our operations are efficient, profitable, and environmentally friendly.

The economy of Nigeria is teetering on the brink of collapse, and the country is currently at a critical juncture requiring urgently needed solutions. The economy of Nigeria needs to be redesigned from the ground up so that it better fits the requirements of its people rather than modelling itself after the economies of other countries. Because of this, I will always advocate for products manufactured in Nigeria that are appropriate for us.

You see corruption is a major factor in Nigeria that has given birth to insecurity, poverty, Boko Haram all sort of nonsense. I think the best way is to learn and adopt the international ways of proffering solutions to their challenges.

To be honest with you (writer) corruption has eaten deep in to the fabrics of Nigeria system. Either Traditionalism or Internationalism only God can find solution to Nigeria situation.
