I’m not actually a fan of isolationism. France has capitalized on the raging anger in its former West African colonies over the indefinite closure of Nigerian borders – a move that hurts national economies of the neighbouring countries – to tradeoff CFA currency for Eco which is pegged against the Euro. The crafty French didn’t stop there; they reach out to Ghana, an Anglophone country and epitome of economic prosperity in West Africa, to join Eco.
If Ghana joins Eco and Nigeria is shut out, there would be dire consequences for our national economy. It is time of rethink for Nigeria; and clock is ticking past. Let’s work on economic cooperation arrangement that provide access for our goods/services to the regional markets while safeguarding our national security. We should use COMMERCIAL SOLUTIONS to solve ECONOMIC PROBLEMS.
