I was on board the defunct Air Nigeria Airline to the Gambia for the Conference for African Ministers, Fisheries and Aquaculture (CAMFA) in 2010 when I encountered another Nigerian, who was alighting in Sierra Leone. We both boarded the aircraft in Lagos and soon, I began to chat to him about political developments in Nigeria. The young man, who identified himself as Ikechukwu told me he had lived in China for more than a decade and was involved in business. The moment he mentioned China, I got interested and pressed further. After regaling me with the wonders of China’s infrastructural development, he narrowed it down to his own venture in Nigeria.
