Why Finance Minister Kemi Adeosun's Asset Sale Saudi Comparison Is Bankrupt

by Dr. Peregrino Brimah

1. Saudi Arabia plans to sell just 5% of its oil assets while maintaining an overwhelming 95% majority, while Nigeria has not indicated a plan to sell such a little fraction of each asset but to give them out whole.

2. Saudi Arabia is not selling from a position of desperation and inability to manage the assets but from a position of strength and at top price for assets properly operated and exploited.
