Following the ranking of Africa's largest economies during the 2020 financial year, here is how Netizens reacted.
Manana: "Egyptians are highly aware of what leadership is and how it is implemented. It's only in South Africa where leaders were never greedy and angry over apartheid government. Today South Africa would have been having the strongest currency, biggest economy, high valued infrastructure, quality education, good standards of living and lower unemployment rate."
Violet: "The GDP of both Egypt and Nigeria is not proportionate to their populations hence the lower GDP per capita. Economically speaking, this might hinder improvement in the quality of life for Citizens."
Engry: "Nigeria's only undoing is LEADERSHIP. It's not corruption nor lack of electricity nor any other thing. As soon as Nigeria gets the leadership right, she will be among the 5 greatest nation on Earth."
