The Platform: People with ideas rule the world – Bolanle Austen-Peters

Founder of Terra Kulture and producer of yet-to-be-released ebola movie, Bolanle Austen-Peters on Saturday said Nigerians need to start thinking of ideas that will change the future, stating that people with ideas rule the world.

She said this at The Platform, while delivering a speech titled “Creativity, Innovation and Development”.

Mrs. Austen-Peters cited examples of famous personalities who are indispensable to the world today, because of certain ideas they have developed.

She said oil discovery and dependence made Nigeria and its citizens lazy, stating that Nigeria can exist without it.

“Hardwork is no more synonymous with us.

“Nigeria will exist without Oil. Oil is now a burden more than a blessing.

“People with ideas will rule the world.

“We all need to be more imaginative in our space. We are a consuming nation. How many of us consider creating?

“There’s a lot of gap in Nigeria you can plug yourself into.

“We have a habit of knocking down our own, especially our entrepreneur.”

  1. Comment:Nigeria can exist without oil before the discovery of oil the nation have come to an existence and until we discovered where we are failing the nation we remain stagnant with nothing. Our leader must see beyond politics to the level of understanding the role role of leadership in development of a nation. we need to get our visions right. Nigeria is blessed with good land, in water with different natural resources. Let our leader wake up from there slumber. Nigeria can rise again only when our leader do it right
