Is Nigeria A Developing Or A 3rd World Country?

I am often confused, annoyed and belittled when reading both local and foreign newspapers and my potentailly great country, Nigeria, is refered to a 3rd world country. I prefer been refer to as a Developing Country/Nation.

Come to think of it, what are criteria for nation classifications??

What do you think?

Is it not a case of calling us a lesser human being?

Some time ago the widely used term was “Third world country”, but presently it got substituted with milder “developing country”. This term is considered to be more politically correct, as it gives hope and prospect of development being in sight.

So, Nigeria could be called both developing and third world country. It has many opportunities to become a developed one. It all really depends on the nation.

Occasionally we just need to find and present acceptable unbiased info. Here:

128. Kenya

129. Bangladesh

130. Ghana

131. Cameroon

132. Myanmar

133. Yemen

134. Benin

135. Madagascar

136. Mauritania

146. Angola

147. Djibouti

148. Tanzania (United Republic of)

149. Côte d'Ivoire

150. Zambia

What kills me is that we were at the bottom of the medium development list 2 years previously. Then someone ushered in pogroms and bloodletting claiming election-rigging that reversed our progress and now that same NIGGER is now posing as a statesman over a similar situation in Cote DeIvoire!!!! AAARRGGHHHHHH F&*(@??!!

If there is anything like 4th world nation, that is what Nigeria is.

Cos even the 3rd country is improving, but Nigeria is getting better by being worse.

Joke of a nation.

@ topic.

The reason why we have been classified into this category is because they have done their research and have seen that we as a nation still struggle to compete on a global scale, due to the fact that we are still lagging behind in some areas as our government has failed to provide basic amenities, which include standard health care, education, employment, resources, money, and other various factors.

Based on what I have been hearing, Lagos and Abuja is gradually developing. Let's just hope that other governors will get in line and start reforms because we have so many natural resources that are able to catapult our nation to the top.

@ poster.

This issue should not bother you because at present I am studying in the US, and believe me the vast majority here think that we are still swinging from tree to tree. Anyway, ignorance is the worst communicable disease of most Americans and it is pathetic to see that it is an epidemic they are not aware of.

In 2007, Nigeria was ranked 148. This latest survey places Nigeria as the 59th most corrupt country. This is by no means a small achievement for a country which some years ago, was ranked one of the most corrupt countries in the world.

Notwithstanding the controversy surrounding the efficacy or otherwise of TI's methodology, becoming the 59th most corrupt out of 180 countries ought to call for a celebration. Not even the government celebrated. What could have been wrong?

Only in a 3rd world Country can they expect celebration for being 59th on the list of most corrupt nation.

Mpele, don't get the wrong idea, my outcry is borne out of frustration, not hatred. I am frustrated that a bunch of hopeless putrid parasitic nitwits that barely make up 2% of the population have turned the country into their private company. I am frustrated that a vast majority of Nigerians who are decent people have embraced the mind boggling, gut wrenching status quo instead of sticking out their necks in order to enjoy the benefits of a functional country. Everyone knows the right thing but nobody will do it.

It seems that only violence works in Nigeria; violence against the insignificant parasites masquerading as Governors/Reps/Local Govt Chairmen/Presidents/AG/Commissioners etc etc. Perhaps that language should be spoken for things to turn around.

So Mr. Mpele, I do not wish death and destruction to Nigerians, because 80% of the most important men and women in my life are in Nigeria, instead I have the urge to pulverize the ''leaders'' and a few imbecilic ''citizens'' who have turned the nation into a laughing stock.

Nigeria can only be classified as a third world country for the following reasons.

1. Mains electricity supplies are erratic or non-existent in most parts of the country.

2. There has never been provision for any form of social security, unemployment or retirement benefits to most Nigerian citizens.

3. The streets are strewn with mountains of trash in most major Nigerian cities as municipal trash collection is effectively non-existent.

4. It is possible to break the law and sometimes even get away with murder simply by bribing the Nigerian Police.

5. The innocent often wind up in jail or get summarily shot for failure to bribe Nigerian policemen.

6. Armed robbers very commonly lay siege on residential neigborhoods FOR HOURS AT A TIME in many Nigerian cities, without police response.

7. Federal and state highways in Nigeria are pock-marked with massive craters that constitute death traps to motorists.

8. Nigerian state-run hospitals are under-funded, under-staffed, housed in run-down buildings and lacking both equipment and reliably safe pharmaceutical drugs.

9. Dead bodies are a common sight on the streets in metropolitan areas as well as in plain view along major highways.

10. Vehicle safety codes in Nigeria are non-existent, and vehicle smog emmission controls entirely unheard of in Nigeria.

11. In Lagos, Nigeria's commercial hub, there exist TODAY pedestrian over-head bridges in such disrepair as to have rotted clear through, leaving gaping holes through which unwary pedestrians do regularly fall 50 feet into traffic below.

12. The number of Nigerian metropolitan areas that are served by a centralized drinking water supply can be counted on the fingers of one hand.

I would be very interested to hear from anyone who feels that ANY SINGLE ONE of the above twelve points does not on its own classify Nigeria as a third world nation, or who feels that any one of the above twelve points contains an exaggeration or lie. [quote][/quote]

If the above are true then Nigeria is definitely a third world country.

And if you don't know what xenophobia is then you know your lying cause that's like the news of the day.

Thank you. That's what i've been telling this people that nigeria is both a developing and a third world country. But of course you can't teach nigerians anything. Everyone has to be right.

Too much ego in our bodies. Ah

If that quote is to me, you know i didn't write that. Hmm. Kobojunkie. How much do i hate thee? Not much but i can't stand you.

What is a definition of a "third world country"?

What is the definition of a first world nation? What is the yardstick for measuring development? The US or the EU? Why are nations like Brazil and Mexico still second world nations despite their thriving economies?

We are not an underdeveloped country, we are simply an exploited nation! Exploited by those same "super powers" for their own greed and selfish gain. Their economies where built on the backs of poor africans and the resources they stole from us!

if u are living in the usa as u claim my dear, won't u work towards changing our identity from third world country to fourth or fifth? in which aspects of life do u wish to compare things here and there? why do we always run away from the truth? who exploit you and when? how many years of independence? or are you telling us that the abachas, babangidas and objs to mention but a few are whites?

far from the truth, i do not know the last time u were in nigeria but events back home is showing that we are directing our efforts to go down to fourth world country. nigeria has succeeded in a step forward and four backward.

it was on news that robbers went to yar adua's mother's house a couple of days ago which shows how safe we are all there in our first world nation.

we are our own problem and until we begin to accept this responsibilities and decide to make amends, things will continue the way it is.

please if u have decided to believe that nigeria and the usa is in the same train, pls come back home.

Mbele don't mind Kobojunkie.

He just love the west so bleeping much.

He doesn't think the US does anything wrong.

It's a waste of time.

I do agree America hides their corruption and poverty even people of America says that but according to Kobojunkie, they are not doing that.

I believe the people of America rather than Kobojunkie.

So don't mind him, you'll only be wasting your time arguing with him.

E be say, he dey Craze

And i do agree with You. Nigerians needs to start going back to Nigeria to help.

Everyone of them is complaining but they are not doing Anything about it.

When i learned about Government in Class.

I learned Nigeria really doesn't know much about how government works.

For example: I learnt that schools are created by Governors, not Presidents.

The only difference is the president Sponsor them(For example: The Anambra governor is opening up new medical schools in Anambra) and according to what i heard Anambra governor seems to be the only decent governor in Nigeria

Other Governor are waiting for the president to do what's suppose to be their jobs.

Another thing i learnt in Government was Governor are the one's who brings investment in their state

And the president brings investment for the country.

Nigeria governors are not even trying to bring investment in the state they govern(I don't even know what the hell they doing)(Hell they may even steal everything).

Nigeria uses United States way of government and yet we are not even doing what the constitution and bill of right and all that bull says.

I'm not going to Lie, Nigerians aboard sickens me.

I'm Nigerian and i live in the USA but i'm here for my education and i'm still a student.

When i'm done with everything and i get my medical degree. I'm moving back Nigeria to help as many people as i can.

I told myself i'll open up a free clinic(which we really need in Nigeria) and also i'll teach people what i learnt when i was in America.

Even if i die poor doing it. I don't care as long as i help my people.

Nigeria health care is so bad and yet we have millions of doctors in America, Canada, and UK that's from Nigeria.

I mean seriously, it shouldn't be like that.

__________________________________________________________

No offense but South Africa is getting worse based on what i'm reading.

Your economy is dropping, just like it was in aparthied, the government is not helping anybody

And since Xenophobia began it seems to be increasing.

And again No offense, but i've dealth with many South Africans; you all really don't know anything about Nigeria, At all.

Again No offense.

Based from all the comments i've been reading from South Africans. You all really don't know anything about Nigeria or any other African country

Again No offense.

I hate when dumb people try to act smart.

There are 33 fourth world countries in Africa and they are  Angola, Benin, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Central African Republic, Chad, Comoros, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Djibouti, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Gambia, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Lesotho, Liberia, Madagascar, Malawi, Mali, Mauritania, Mozambique, Niger, Rwanda, Sao Tome and Principe, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Sudan, Tanzania, Togo, Uganda, and  Zambia.

Two countries were taking out of the 4th world countries and put in another catergory and that's Botswana and Cape Verde.

Like i said before NIGERIA WAS NEVER IN THAT LIST.

Ever since Abacha died, Nigeria economy is growing each year.

Right now Nigeria has the highest growing in Africa(We used to be 2nd growing economy in Africa right behind South Africa then Xenophobia started and their economy started falling).

Nigeria has the HIGHEST growing Economy in Africa and also ONE of the highest growing economy in the World(well for now, lets just hope it doesn't drop).

Nigeria economy growth rate is now 6.8%.

Yea it's true, Obasanjo stole millions of money from Nigeria. I always taught he didn't do anything for nigeria when he was president.

Until i started Researching about Nigeria that i learnt our economy started increasing during his time as president and Yaradua kept it growing more.

But i have to tell ya'll.

If it wasn't for "Soludo" Our economy wouldn't be increasing each year.  That man has been doing all the job ever since he took over Nigerian Banks.

But Nigeria still has the one of highest Unemployment rate in Africa(Sad isn't it).

Nigeria GDP ranks 49 out 190 nations since 2008

In 2007 it was 173 out of 190 nations(To me, that's a huge Jump).

Nigeria GDP is said to reach $216.4billion in 2008(Let's hope to God, Nigerians sees those money)

N-way in 2007 Nigeria GDP was $166billion

Nigeria is also ranks No. 35 with a 6.8 percent in terms of growth rate.

Other countries have joined to help Yaradua reach that one of the Top 20 countries in the year of 2010 goal of his.

One country i can remeber right now is Thiliand(Lets just hope they joined to help Nigeria,  and Not to Use Nigeria) (Let's just pray for that).

According to UN, Africa economy is increasing and Nigeria and South Africa are the one's leading the increase.

But one thing i also learned was some parts of Nigeria is living as a third-world country especially those living in the Northern part of Nigeria and Niger-delta

Oh yeah one more thing

Nigeria is also listed among the "Next Eleven" economies(Egypt and Nigeria are the only African countries in that list).

And also ever since Xenophobia started in South Africa.  Nigeria, Ghana, and other African countries has been receiving investments from countries and companies who wanted in invest in South Africa but decided not to(Nigeria and Ghana seems to receive the most).

Nigeria also has been hosting some events South Africa was suppose to do(For example: Noami campbell Africa rising festival)

Nigeria was also places in the league of eight sub-Saharan African countries, heading towards emerging market status.

Alot of countries and people has been investing in Nigeria and according to International Monetary Fund (IMF), Nigeria also has some potential investors.

According to IMF,  Nigeria is now put as a "frontier emerging market"

That doesn't mean out market is great and strong, it just means we are moving forward to it.

Nigeria has been getting alot of money and investments, let just hope to God that Nigerian people and Nigeria(ourcountry) actually see those money(Let's hope to God that our policitians don't steal all of those from us).

That's why Nigeria is labeled in a developing/underdeveloped country

Nigeria is in both list.

But according to the UN, Nigeria is developing.

But we are still in both list.

Nuzo,

Next time, don't fight with a girl that recently just finished researching alot about that country and about Africa also.

Too much of it, is still in my head.

P.S: The above may sound like everything in Nigeria is all Good.

No ya'll.  We still have ALOT of works to do

For example: Nigeria umployment rate is too high.

Our Health Care is bad

and our Education is Bad.

We still have ALOT and i mean ALOT of work to do(Let's hope our government gets on it too).

I am sorry? You, having been to the USA means you know what it means to be poor in the USA? lol, Please, I have lived poor for years in the USA and the cities you mentioned happen to have been cities I have lived in myself. You claim of the USA hiding the fact that there exists poor people even here is as bogus as your claim that you have been to the USA 20 times meaning you know a lot of the West. Anyone who has even spent time monitoring elections in the USA would know that the west does not hide the fact that there are some poor among the population. In fact, pick up a western movie and you see many of these poor people being portrayed in movies. Why you decided to insert that bogus claim in here escapes me. Worse comparing the fate of the poor in the USA to that of poor people in these so called Third World countries show you have little clue what it means to be poor or the actual state of these people’s existence. I spent years in America on the poor list and I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt that it is nothing like being poor in a third world country. Tap dancing around the fact that third world countries have huge numbers of poor people compared to the countries labeled first world, goes to tell that you may not actually have a complete grasp of the topic or the question here. That is why I urge you to do some research instead of coming in to spout such trash.

Sure there are poor people everywhere but what has that to do with Nigeria being a third world nation? I am not sure if you have ever been to the west but your theory of the West hiding their poor is ridiculous as there are many on here who have never been to the west who will tell you of the many poor who live, even on the streets of newyork. Now, for you to compare the poor in the west to the poor in Brazil and other third world countries already show you do not understand anything of what it means to be poor but are just looking to post crap to claim a point is being made.

Please go do some research on what the term means please. A poor man living on the streets of Philadelphia can not be compared to a poor man living on the streets of Lagos. If you have not figured that out by now, then may I suggest that you do your homework.

I had to use the example of South Africa because I live in South Africa. I can't determine whether Nigeria is a third world country or what as I've only been to Abuja. There is this notion that Europe is first world, is rich. The reality is that only Western Europe, Scandanavia and USA are actually the so called first world. I have been to Portugal and Italy, and what I realised is that just like America, the West always hide their poor and destitute, just like Brazil. The are so many poor people in Philadelphia and Texas. But we're only shown New York, LA, Chicago.

You need to go to the chinese hinterlands and see poverty to try and compare Italy with China! It is not the gleaming buildings in beijing, Shanghai or Shenzhen that you will safely conclude that China is a fantastic country. Overall quality of live, GDP per capita and other more economic, social, political factors are what you should be looking at.

Nigeria to me is third world. Go to some othe countries like Brazil and see the difference between them and Nigeria. we are not even in the same class! However, there are still many things you will see or experience that make countries such as Brazil not to be in the same class as most of the European and north american countries.

When you have an economy that depends to a great deal on it’s people acquiring cell phones and subscribing to plans offered by the many communication companies down there, you know you have a third world country that could easily collapse if care is not taken. ROFLMAO!!

For information on the definition of the term "Third World" visit this page [your=http://www.thirdworldtraveler.com/General/ThirdWorld_def.html]Third World[/url]

China is still a third world country due mainly to the country housing a huge number of the world's poor, to date. Even though it is one of the biggest economies today, it still houses the vast majority of the poor in the world today( well, I believe India is first and then china is second). No matter how much economic growth a country like china experiences, if the majority of the people remain poor, it can not be labelled anything other than a third world country). Same with Nigeria, we hear of 10% or thereabout GDP growth in the last 5 years or so, but the vast majority of the people remain poor. Does that then mean Nigeria is no longer a developing country?

By the way, Nigeria has ALWAYS had potential, that is a not a new discovery.

I find the fact that other countries can come to a conclusion that others are third world and they are first world. What criteria was used to judge other countries. Who gave them the right or the go ahead to determine what is what. For instance I find it hard to believe that China can be labeled a developing country (so called third world) and a country like Italy be labeled a first world country. Italy has one of the most worn out infrastructure in the world, be it sporting infrustructure and buildings, their economy is not as big as the Chinese economy. With China I'm telling you that country's infrustructure is even better than what the Americans and the West have. The sporting infrustructure, the buildings in Shanghai and Beijing etc are top class. But hey! for the Europeans, China is third world. The crux of the matter is that countries like South Africa,Argentina, Mexico, Brazil, Malaysia, India,China, and to some extent Tunisia can no longer be classified as third world. Those who always come with terms to determine ones beign can simply call these countries second world.

When it comes to Nigeria, I think that the country have lots of potential, but I don't think it can be seen in the same light as countries like Zimbabwe, Somalia, Cameroon, Ivory Coast etc. I actually believe that Nigeria and Egypt can do better than what they're doing right now. I mean for god sake Nigeria is one of the biggest oil producing countries. Post apartheid South Africa don't have the luxury of producing oil, but at least we've made use of the gold, platinum and diamond that are mined in the country. Nigeria produces lots and lots of academics, I actually believe that Nigerians are actually the most educated people on the continent. Why is their country struggling. I personally think that the reason Nigeria is not economically strong is the fact that most of the educated Naijas leave the country for Britain and the US. Why go and grow economies that are already strong, why don't you stay home and help in making Nigeria the giant that it is. People will continue to look down or not take Nigeria serious if it continues to be a regional powerhouse rather than being a continental giant. Nigeria is supposed to be with South Africa in the top five developing nations. During the apartheid era South Africa was not as strong as it is right now. Yes I agree that the economy is still 70% in the white hands, but we have used that to our advantage. Today we're a global player with so much influence. South Africa is the only black country at the G8 + O5 Summit.

i Dont think nigiria is a third world country it is a developing country ba the reason why they say that it is a third world country is because of the on ecual devision of money for instance you have extremly poor people poor people people with a normal income rich people and people that are so rich that they dont know what to do with the money and that is a problem of the whole of africa. Ba it is not only africa south america is the same and north america too you also have very poor people there

if it were in America or europe that they had massive rigging and total unaccountability in most posts believe me a machine would be built to rectify dat. America and europe police and other law enforcements have containment procedures like if u seem too difficult then the swat comes in and if u'r still stubborn the national guard comes in. All these stuffs, Nigerians know. We also know dat our leaders are eating our money but decided to stay calm; we also know dat we like western things like cars, trains, planes etc but have decided not to try manufacturing but to import everything including second hand pants; We know dat anyone who should have the first 50top posts in the country should be educated with a degree but we have decided to let any person rule and lead where fit; We know dat TOO much traditional rulers bring ethnicity awareness but we have decided to say Britain is doing it, as if before u build a house u have to pay the local government then traditional ruler and these 'r just a few people u have to pay, my thing is we should choose one traditional ruler for every language dat exists today or an elected local government officals; We don't have a secured and reliable citizens identity cards or proof but we decided that it be dat way; We would rather inflate our products than make it for the masses; We would rather do juju to kill than do juju to progress our nation; We also know dat we don't have to be yankee or jand to progress but we have decided to be excuse makers; Basically, we are a developing nation dat has d potential and capacity to be developed but our individuals be it in d government house, school, hospital, security, agriculture, etc is d same greed and power hunger so dat they will be called Oga.
