The Gazprom-Nigeria Brand Still Catching Criticism

It looks like the unfortunately named joint venture between Nigeria and Gazprom is still causing some problems.  Luke Harding as a piece taking a look at all the reactions, while I found this eyebrow-raising quote at the bottom of a Reuter’s piece:

“White people are making too much of this. As long as the Russians pay us, they can call it what they like,” said one Nigerian in the commercial hub, Lagos, asking not to be named.

Problem is, I wouldn’t count on that Russian money arriving any time soon.  They make this promise about once a year.
