The Ivory Coast Blog

Freedom. Stability. Independence. Prosperity.

Look to the Ivory Coast for Inspiration


I recently was shown this snippet from a blog featuring Nigerian interests. Nigerian Curiosity is the name of the site and is edited by SOLOMONSYDELLE. Click his name to read about the blog.

It was a very powerful commentary about his own personal understanding of the Cote d’Ivoire and I hope our readers will go to the site and read the whole commentary and the string of responses to it. More.

Here is the snippet:

I had the good fortune of living in Cote D’Ivoire for almost 7 years. It is a beautiful country with wonderful people, incredible music, great food and excellent beaches. I must confess that despite the recent insecurity and fighting that nation has experienced, Cote D’Ivoire and specifically, the city of Abidjan, will always have a special place in my heart.

He goes on further to compare his nation with the great efforts President Gbagbo took in the Ivory Coast over fuel cost riots:

Well, Cote D’Ivoire, or the Ivory Coast as non-French speakers call it, has done something that Nigeria’s government should pay attention to. There was a riot in April when the government increased the price of diesel. In response, the Ivorian government has just announced that it will slash the salaries of Ministers by half to subsidize the lower cost of diesel for the masses.

Many thanks to Solomonsydelle!
