44 African nations sign pact establishing free trade area: AU: Politics : Nigerialog.com - Nigeria's Premier Online Forum
Nigeria, one of Africa’s largest markets, hesitated after objections from business leaders and unions — a sign that getting the deal through scores of national parliaments may face several hurdles.
I wonder why Nigeria which should be leading Africa in these things should be hesitating. I wonder which "business leaders and unions" want for Nigeria to cede her natural leadership position to tiny countries like Rwanda and the like.This is embarrassing to say the least. This is why we need very well educated and confident leaders at the top. Imagine Nigeria fearing competition from other African countries.Simply laughable.
Nigeria is a notable absentee after President Muhammadu Buhari pulled out of this week’s launch in Rwanda saying he needed more time for consultations at home.
