Buhari’s statement : Should Nigerians who think they’ve another country leave?

It is frustrating  especially when someone is building and others are pulling him down. I did not see anything bad or derogatory in the statement.

Can Blockchain transform developing nations?

Developing nations have a lot to offer the world and unlike the Western world, these countries have very few or no legacy systems which makes them perfect for the installation of new systems.
