A few years ago, I heard of a Prof. of medicine who had an accident somewhere up north – Peter Obi said

They were rich folks from that type of nation.

There is no end to such illustrations.

Being rich in a poor nation is just being in one big gutter with others, only that your part of the gutter seems neater than those on the other side… but when the flood comes, it touches everyone to a certain degree.
