Oil and gas aren’t the most important national resources in Nigeria, according to the Britain High Commissioner to Nigeria, His excellency, Paul Thomas Arkwright.
Instead of blaming its colonial master for its lack of industrial development, Nigeria need to look inward and find solutions to her problems, he said.
“I know many Nigerian youth are enterprising and can – do. It is not oil or gas that are Nigeria’s most important resources but its people. The human capital that Nigeria has – Nigerians themselves and their drive, determination and ability to get things done often when facing challenges – are what make me optimistic about Nigeria future.”
He said this during a lecture he delivered at the Federal University, Lokoja on the theme; “BREXIT: Lessons, Challenges and Opportunites for Nigeria,” on Thursday.
