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

He was rushed to a nearby health facility but there were no cannulas to set emergency lines and no other basic materials for an emergency intervention for him. He died. A Prof. of medicine.

If you know what it cost him and the system to get to that level, (a bag of cannulas won’t cost you up to the equivalent of a short bread and a chilled cola drink), he is rich, well informed, but from a poor country.

A professor of medicine also died recently from an asthmatic attack… I think in Calabar, among the stories surrounding his death, I heard about intervention not coming as fast as it should or his car getting involved in traffic or mob interference or the emergency ambulance that came to rescue him not having what it takes to sustain him. One fact was that he died partly because of our disorganised and chaotic nature as a nation.

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.
