A Chinese and a Nigerian official meet each other at a meeting.
They soon became good friends and exchanged their business cards.
“If you ever come to China, call me and we can hang out!” says the Chinese official.
“Really? Cool! Same to you. If you ever come to Nigeria, call me and we can hang out!” says the Nigerian official.
6 months later, the Nigerian comes to China, remembering about his Chinese official and decides to call him.
“Hey, I’m in China, want to hang out today?” he asks.
“Sure! Just a question, where are you staying?” the Chinese official asks.
“The Hilton.” the Nigerian replies.
“Pack your things and meet me at the front. You can live with me for your trip.”
The Chinese official pulls up to the hotel with a BMW, the latest model. The Nigerian gets in and the Chinese official takes him on the freeway to his condo. On the freeway, the Nigerian admires the beautiful scenery. Once at the condominium, the Nigerian is impressed at how big the condo is: 5 rooms, 3 bathrooms, and much more that he was baffled about.
The Nigerian official goes to the master bedroom and asks
“You are just a Chinese official, how do you have enough?”
The Chinese official tells him to come to the window and asks, “What do you see outside?”
“Houses, apartments, and people.”
“You see that freeway? Yeah, I took 10%”.
Fast forward 3 months when the Chinese official comes to Nigeria.
“Hey, I just got to Nigeria, want to go grab food later?” he asks.
“Sure! Where are you staying?” the Nigerian official asks.
“The Hilton.” the Chinese official replies.
“Well, pack your things and meet me at the front because you are going to be living with me.”
“Great, I’ll get ready.”
The Nigerian official pulls up to the hotel with a Lamborghini. The Chinese official gets in and the Nigerian takes him. The Chinese official is really excited, wanting to see the beautiful place Nigeria is. They drive and drive when suddenly the road turns into a muddy unpaved road, filled with mud. Huts and children running around. The Chinese official is shocked until they get to the Nigerian’s place: a mansion. The mansion is gorgeous, 35 bedrooms, completed with a slide to the pool from the 2nd floor to the 1st.
The Chinese official goes to the master bedroom and checks the toilet, in disbelief. The toilet seat is pure gold.
He then ask,
“You are just a Nigerian official, how do you have enough?”
The Nigerian official tells him to come to the window and asks, “What do you see outside?”
“Huts, poverty, and barren wasteland.”
“You see that dirt road? 100%.”
