China’s strong centre is not “strong” in the way Nigeria’s is. They set the agenda, but pretty much let the units (four economic regions) do their own thing within the guidelines as set by Beijing.

So, as an example, Jiang Zemin came to prominence because while he was the boss in the area around Shanghai, he did very well, then finally, the person who was tapped up to succeed Deng, (I forget his name), fucked up in his reaction to Tiananmen Square, which pushed Jiang to prominence, and as we all saw, well…

That’s a model Nigeria ought to study.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
