SHAM! Vultures Promote Asset Sale Plot - By David O. Kuranga

Crony capitalist and corrupt vultures have begun to circle around the Elitist-serving Nigerian Federal Government under President Buhari. 

Their goal is to convince the administration that the only way for Nigeria to emerge from its current recession is to sell-off its oil assets to them and their foreign business partners and financiers. 

They argue that since the government does not have enough to fund its current budget and stabilize its currency, that it should permanently sell all its oil assets to “investors”, and use the proceeds and foreign exchange to finance its budget shortfall and stabilize the national currency. 

The vultures involved in the plot include top business leaders and lawmakers in Nigeria. The idea that these predatory politicians and crony capitalists are promoting is reminiscent of how Jacob convinced his brother Esau to sell his birthright for a bowl of soup by taking advantage of him at a vulnerable moment when he was starving.
