Zambian Minister of Labour, Comrade Fackson Shamenda says Nigeria is now the true leader on the African continent having taken the back seat for so many years.
Speaking during a visit to......
Governor Adams Oshiomhole in Benin City, Wednesday, Comrade Shamenda said it was a shame that Nigeria which all the people on the continent looked up to had to get foreign telecoms companies to spearhead the GSM industry in. the country.
He said: “the first time I came to Nigeria, I saw a big plane with an elephant painted on it, and I wondered because elephants do not fly. Nigeria is supposed to be the big brother of Africa but the first GSM company came in from Zimbabwe when you are supposed to take development to Zimbabwe.
“This time, Nigeria is different. A Nigerian went to Zambia and established a branch of his cement plant in our country. It is gladdening, because it shows Nigeria is now truly taking up its role as the leader in Africa. I am proud of the son of the soil.
