Capital investment and the
impact in Nigeria and other third World countries are very slow when compared
with capital investments of the advanced countries like USA, Britain, Germany
etc. The causes of these differences range from low-capital savings, low
investment, low capital accumulation i.e. the term “Vicious circle of poverty”
and other related Geo-socio-cultural problems predominant in the African
continent which is not peculiar with Nigerian style at investments.
In the project attempts were made to X-ray these problems and possible antdots
which will serve as a panacea to these myriads of problems. Such results and
findings include: creating awareness politically, total patriotism like
those exhibited by George Ashington of America, Zike of Africa, Nkurmah of
Ghana, to mention but a few. Also, eschewing social vices like, slander,
corrupt practices, showing equity discourage avarice, entrench a lasting,
tested democratic society for the betterment of all Nigerians. This will help
us to achieve all aims, inability the teachings of God, exhibiting tolerance,
peace, love, brotherliness as we have no any other country, than Nigerian we
have to stay her and selvage it together.
