Nigeria, a country in the West African region, is richer than Dubai, one of the most advanced cities located in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), but its development is hampered by corruption, an Arabian man has said.
In a video trending on social media, the Arabian man, whose name was not revealed, said Nigeria has a problem of bad leadership.
According to him, Nigeria is rich in oil and that the country had the mineral resource before Dubai discovered its own.
Apart from oil, the man said Nigeria is blessed with fertile land for agriculture.
He said: “Nigeria is way richer than Dubai. Nigeria had crude oil before Dubai.
"Nigeria also has agriculture, gold, diamond and many other valuable mineral deposits (minning), but Nigeria is currently the way it is because of bad leaders.
"The only reason Dubai is better than Nigeria is because of good leadership.”
