A country with more than One billion people and a GDP of above 12 trillion dollars (2012 quoted),it can only get finer.
The Chinese and their technology have been saving lives in this country and even though we coin silly names for their products; it’s sure a life saver. Be you rich or poor, you can't count five appliances in your home without picking up a Chinese product (either in part or whole).

It will most certainly broaden your horizon and give you more chances of inking a better job after school.

China has enormous potentials that can be harnessed by Nigerians if we get the right training. We mustn't depend on government or blame government for everything that happens in this nation.
