Are some businesses in Nigeria reserved for the privileged few? Before we can answer this question, let us try to identify the businesses that genuine Nigerian billionaires use to make their wealth.
Aliko Dangote $12.1 Billion Cement, Sugar, Flour,
Mike Adenuga $5.8 Billion Telecom, Oil
Femi Otedola $1.8 Billion Oil
Folorunsho Alakija $1.6 Billion Oil
Abdulsamad Rabiu $1.1 Billion Cement, Sugar.
From just this top 5 billionaires, you will identify 5 industries which are : Cement, Sugar, Flour, Telecom and Oil. Interestingly, the richest of them all Aliko Dangote, is not into oil.
Now the question is, can an average man enter into these lucrative business sectors? A report sponsored by the CBN seems to indicate that an average man can actually break into several lucrative business sectors apparently reserved for the billionaires, especially Cement, Flour, Sugar, Fertilizer, Noodles (another sector by multi-millionaires like Oba Otudeko of Honeywell group), etc.
It seems from this report that the major difference between the ordinary people and the mega rich, is INFORMATION. The rich puts on an aura of invincibility around them, and use it to scare off potential competitors, their profile also intimidates the average man from even attempting to play in their area. Once while Bill Gates the richest man on Earth was being interviewed, he was asked to identify his greatest fear. The interviewer expected him to point to big competitors like Apple, but he said that his biggest fear was young people working diligently in their father’s garage, with nothing to lose. He said that these are the people he fears the most, because he knows that they are the ones that will one day come up with technologies that will disrupt and maybe swallow up Microsoft. A few years after making that statement, two poor students Sergey Brin and Larry Page came up with a search engine Google that nearly destroyed the dominance of Microsoft operating system, by making computing cloud-based. Soon after, Mark Zuckerberg came out with Facebook.
Moral of the story, Billionaires are worried about little upstarts who might discover their secret or discover another trend that will derail their business model. The CBN report is an eye opener that will let you into the world of billionaires business. Although the businesses are still not easy to break into, but knowing that it can be done, and seeing the processes, will instantly change your perception and may get you thinking in that direction. And like they say, As a man thinketh, so is he (ladies too!) .

Have you asked yourself why Nigerians abroad are always the best and brightest talents in so many fields? In robotics (Barth Nnaji) , Computer science (Phillip Emeagwali), Literature (Wole Soyinka, Chimamanda Adichie), in business and in almost every field, you will find Nigerians. It is because we are very resourceful, we are one of the most talented species on earth, but back home, the story is different. Back home we sleep.
Do you know what puts us to sleep? No one is encouraging us, everyone is talking bad of the Nation, Pessimism is the order of the day, the spirit of entrepreneurship is stifled, hatred is fueled among the youth. I don’t know exactly how to put it, but it seems some kind of “evil spirit” is whispering to everyone’s ear that they can’t make a difference, that all those that made it are “government cronies”, that the economy can never sustain them, that they are destined to failure. I think it is the spirit of third world poverty. A special spirit of poverty meant to target the minds of people. I am not trying to be religious, but using spirit is the best way to describe this mass delusion.
As bad as it looks, I know Nigeria will rise again. China was once asleep like us. A great American statesmen said then, “leave China to sleep now, for when the dragon awakes, the world will rumble”. Today Mighty China is awake and the world knows.
Nigeria is also in a deep slumber, but we are waking up. The so called “recession” is waking people up. When Nigeria awakes, the world will know.
