Why are African governments concerned with creating more jobs clearly that hasn't worked ever. Why don't they focus on getting the youth to learn employable skills or self providing skills so that they don't have to work for others.

This is a step in the right direction.

Prioritize power and education, Nigeria desperately needs this moving forward.

I hope you do know that if u are expecting the Germans to provide solutions that will fit in our current electricity generation - transmission framework, then you will have to look at current roads/city infrastructure. No reasonable transmission is possible with d present.

Finally taking action. It's unfortunate that our leaders are in a difficult position where they have to fix the problems caused by previous generations. But any progress however small is still progress.
