Who Has The Strongest Military On Africa?

My opinion is Egypt.

The armed forces of Egypt are the largest on the African continent and one of the biggest in the world (ranked 11th), consisting of the Egyptian Army, Egyptian Navy, Egyptian Air Force and Egyptian Air Defense Command.

Egypt maintains a large paramilitary force under the control of the Ministry of Interior. They number around 250,000 strong and are known as the Central Security Forces. The government also has a relatively strong National Guard and Border Security Forces however they, unlike the Central Security Forces, come under the control of the Ministry of Defence and are reported to number 60,000 and 20,000 respectively.

Providing seedlings is a cost to the taxpayer and is only meant to facilitate the industry.

That doesn't mean that the government is the exporter. Individual farmers and entities are. It just makes no sense that if the collective industry exports $10 bn in value, then the government earns $10 bn.

The article is simply a picture of how big the industry is. It has nothing to do with government earnings. We can't even work out from the article how much each of the actual exporters make in profits. How much their income is and how much they pay in duties or income tax.

Nowhere does the article say your government earns $10 bn. you're stretching things. A lot.

Anyway, your article says "nigeria EXPORTS $10 bn ...cocoa". Your bolded sentence is a beeeeeg thumb suck and misrepresentation of what the article says.

The Nigerian government provides seedlings, subsidised fertiliser, storage facilities, loan facilities and machinery to small and large scale farmers, including chocolate manufacturers in the country.

These farmer inturn pay duties, taxes to the nigerian government. Across the cocoa chain, the government has made 10 billion dollars of a 200 billion dollar industry.

It is a straight forward comment, easy to understand.

Like i've said, a sellers earnings can and would match up to the value of his produce, if he is able to meet and satisfy all demands.

Nothing to it.

First of all, the nigerian government does not farm or sell cocoa. So, that the government earned $10 bn is rubbish from that perspective.

Two - if I sell units worth $10 bn, that's only my revenue. The top line. The bottom line will be less.

It means there isn't any Economics to state Total value of cocoa, cannot meet government earnings if supplies are adequately met.

This is the bottom line.

The Nigerian government made 10 billion dollars in cocoa exports, what the government currently has in it's purse after payments have been made is a totally different matter.

So meaning is in the title now?

The value of your exports CANNOT be equal to your earnings.

Your country exports $10bn in value. That's not the bottomline and that certainly NOT government earnings.

What does the businessday tittle say? Who say's value can't equal earnings?

Fact is for a single commodity, cocoa, Nigeria gets an estimated 10 billion dollars yearly. If Nigeria has an OPEC quota of 2.4 million barrels of oil at $100 per barrel, how much is nigeria's government earning?

You are utterly daft, it isn't shocking any longer. If the revenue for a single commodity is 10 billion usd a year, how can you rationalise the total government earnings to be 25 billion? Fool.

The title say's it all.

You lack enough common sense to understand that the POTENTIAL 10Billion in exports (not actual) does not go straight into your governments pockets

Good lord man. I am astounded by the utter and complete irony of your post

Facts are facts - your government lives off a paltry 25billion income

You can speak like the persecuted messiah until the sun rises in the east, but it won't change anything. You are a fraud, like you have been told before. You tried to mislead the forum. We can read for ourselves man. If you'd posted the links before, why go through the trouble of making screen grabs. It's much easier to paste links? No, Auguby. We don't buy it. Let us read for ourselves or simply quit this story. What devalues the thread are fraudulent posts.

And enjoy sulking!

I did not marry the two screenshots, I posted two different images, and because they are HP computer screenshots, they have no boundry line and appear like merged, you are a computer illiterate and an IT mumu.

Each photo screenshot mentions the news media that published it, Janes says Janes, Tribune says Tribune, or your fish brain has ever seen Nigerian adverts pop up on Janes pages? Can't your dull head figure out Nigerian local adverts on the second screenshot from Tribune newspapers? Soweto Retaard.

Call me a fraud 1,000 times and I don't care, I have developed thick skin, so I don't care.

I have those weblinks repeated over 20 times in the past one month, and I will NOT repeat them for you, keep on devaluing this thread, I am out, have fun !

Olusegun Aganga, the minister of industry, trade and investment, has disclosed that the total value of exporting raw cocoa from Nigeria is approximately $10 billion a year.

He reiterated the commitment of the country to expand the commodity’s production for additional foreign earnings.

Aganga, who said this at the just concluded cocoa summit 2014 in Abuja, noted that with the planned repositioning efforts of the present administration, the country would extract immense value out of the cocoa industry.

According to him, the Federal Government would not relent in the implementation of expansion projects for cocoa processing and manufacturing in the country to claim a greater share of the annual $200 billion global market for finished goods made from cocoa.

“The total global value of exporting raw cocoa is approximately $10 billion a year; the total value from chocolates alone, all made from cocoa, is over $100 billion a year, while the total value of all finished goods made from cocoa is estimated to be as high as $200 billion a year, all drawing from the same $10 billion raw cocoa beans produced.

Like I've consistently told you, those numbers you always parade are wrong, and have always been wrong. The problem is, you lack common sense and the ability to think.

But you're still a fagg, however. Scorned that your lust hit a brick wall, outside of Postmann. You are all about attention and not value-add. Expressed your love openly, multiple times on a military thread. Not a single poster here is about other posters, beyond the issue at hand. Not a single one but you, cause you fagg around.
