David,
Come to Bonny Island and you will see more wonders among the expatriates!

Foreign artisans without good education earn more dollars than their Nigerian managers.

Well, I just enjoy the comedy of errors.

Most of those so called expatriates are technicians in their home countries. When they come to Nigeria, they are elevated and celebrated over seasoned and experienced graduates.
