Nigerian president is smarter than Obama (almost as smart as Ron Paul) - vows to cut Govt Worker Pay by 25% & eliminate all Fuel Subsidies!
.


Goodluck Jonathan, Nigeria’s president, has pledged to cut
the salaries of ministers and top civil servants by 25 per
cent in a bid to avert a national strike in protest at the
removal of fuel subsidies.

Unions and civil society groups immediately rejected
Jonathan’s plea for understanding, and vowed to press ahead
with mass action on Monday that could bring sub-Saharan
Africa’s second-largest economy to a halt.

I think it's not so much smarts (though Jonathan is a very smart cookie), but budgetary despair.
For Nigeria to stay financially viable in the long run he has to balance the budget.

He's got the advantage of not being encumbered much by ideological baggage.
He's a scientist who more or less accidentally became a politician.
A pragmatist who doesn't seem to worry much about re-election.

Dr Ron Paul recognizes the same thing in America --
that the spending is utterly unsustainable.


Cut govt worker pay by 25 percent and the smarter
Govt Workers will return to the civilian work force.
