Abuja – The ministry of information has just released positive news on Nigeria's economy.
Nigeria, a major oil producer and home to about 150 million Africans, has so far been unable to shake off the title of Third World, but things are looking good for the nation, according to a new study conducted by the World Bank.
In new data released, Nigeria occupies the number one position in CEOs per capita. That is: Chief Executive Officers per citizen.
The interesting figures for Nigeria also show that there is no sex bias when it comes to Nigerian citizens who are CEOs, thus placing Nigeria above so-called developed countries in terms of equality and woman empowerment.
To really appreciate Nigeria’s excellent performance in terms of number of CEOs, America with a population of 313 million only has 400,000 Chief Executives whereas Nigeria with a population of 150 million has over 40 million citizens registered as CEO of their own companies!
Speaking on the revelation, a Professor of Economics, (who is also CEO of his own school/study-handouts company), expressed his shock that the number is not higher.
According to him, his wife is CEO of her own cake business while his daughter is CEO of her own events management company. His son is also CEO of his own record label – to which the son is signed as only artist, and his son’s friend and collaborator on the son’s upcoming first single is also CEO of his own record label.
A printer in Lagos confirmed the World Bank findings by revealing that all the business cards printed by the company in the last year were for CEOs.
