This is to me one of the saddest and most important charts on the pandemic. Those countries that are doing bad right now (high on the y-axis) are largely the same countries that did worst overall in this pandemic (cumulative case rate until Aug 1 on x-axis).

So reporting FY2020 fiscal estimates: - Fiscal deficit of 6.4 Tn (!) - Debt Service to Revenue ratio of 124% if yields were normalized. I’ve advocated a “Controlled Detonation” of the runaway spending but the recent track record on that is poor. So 🤷🏾‍♂️

One 50 kg bag of rice is now above N30,000. How many Nigerians see N30,000 in cash? So the mad rush for Covid-19 palliatives should be understood in that context.

The level of impunity and unaccountability that makes a politician say publicly that government-bought palliatives found in his house was meant to be distributed on his birthday. That is self-admission of conversion of state property for private interest. He should be prosecuted

The “I always knew this would happen” response to the protests really rankles me. Because it is the sort of practiced cynicism Nigerians are famous for but which at its heart is a defence of the status quo & a call to do nothing. Just eat whatever nonsense is fed to you.
