Qatar is the richest country in the world with a per capita income of $124,927. Qatar has a well-developed oil exploration industry where the petroleum industry accounts for 70% of its government revenue, 60% of its GDP and 85% of its export earnings and most residents of the country enjoy a very high standard of living.
Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani is the Emir of Qatar(President) who born June 3, 1980, he is just 38.

Vanessa D’Ambrosio is the regent of San Marino she was born April 26, 1988 meaning she will be 30years come next Thursday yet San Marino holds the designation of being the world's tenth richest country, with the average personal income coming in at $60,358. Major industries in San Marino include banking, tourism, electronics, and wine and cheese production. Notably, San Marino holds no national debt. Around half of its economy is fueled by tourism.

Guðni Th. Jóhannesson President of the Iceland is 49years old he was born 26 June 1968. Iceland has a per capita income of $52,150,its residents enjoy a high quality of life, with access to high quality education and universal healthcare. The major components of Iceland's economy include software production, biotechnology, and tourism (ecotourism in particular).Iceland is the fourteen richest country in the world.

Xavier Bettel is the president of Luxembourg he was born march 3rd 1973 he is 45. A symbol of wealth, Luxembourg takes second place with a per capita GDP (PPP) of $109,191. This is nine times the world average. The backbone of this strong economy is its vibrant financial sector, prudent fiscal policies, and dynamic industrial and steel sectors. Banking in Luxembourg is the largest sector of its economy with an asset base of over $1.24 trillion alone.

Lets consider the following, Qatar has a well developed oil exploration industry, half of San marina economy is fueled by tourism, Iceland are particular in ecotourism,Banking is the largest sector of Luxembourg economy. Evidently,Nigeria has a whole lot compared to the attributes that made those countries ranked has best in the world. Nigeria is blessed with oil, quite a lot of tourist attraction centers, rich in cultural heritage, dominated with several banking firm yet the standard of living of her citizenry can never be matched up or compared to that of those countries.

"The efficacy of a leader can be determined by how innovative and creative such individual can be."

One of the unique features of the best ranked countries in the world is the age of their leaders which implies that the young and energetic drive of these individuals can be said to be effecting positively in the state of things in their respective countries. Vanessa the regent of San Marino is just 30years of age and I can fight to live the rest of my life in that country.

We have tried several over-aged leaders and they have failed us. The adage that says what an elders see's while sitting, the young one might not see even while standing seem not to be working for us in Nigeria as our elders have failed us. It's high time our older citizen take the back sit and hand over the wheel to young individuals with sound, great, brilliant and intellectual ideology needed to move this country to a greater height. Enough of a leader crippling our economy making life unbearable for it's citizen and still berate them internationally, enough of foreign medical tourist, enough of the retrogression.

In changing this country for the better, we all have a collective role to play, as our choice will either led us to the sustainable development we desire or we will keep living that suffering and smiling lifestyle. The choice is us...
