- Opportunities for the private sector to key in and give room for competition just like every other businesses.
- Reduction in corruption and mis- management of funds from the oil sector.
- Job opportunities and creation (this would be the long- term benefits) similar to the telecommunication sector where we have now different key players thriving and giving jobs to Nigerians!
- Less attention in the oil sector as this would enable us to start getting less dependent on oil! Virtually everything we do in Nigeria is oil-driving!
By the side, I'm also thrilled by the reactions of Nigerians both locally and in diaspora; perhaps its time for us to look at the cost of running the three-tiers of government and work towards deregulating it, if you know what I mean.
