How Nigerian Elites buy Premature Death with their status symbol

Nigeria’s Richest Telecommunications Business Guru, Dr. Mike Adenuga Jnr. (A Very Affluent Elite in Nigeria & Africa)

advantages and disadvantages of “making
or becoming a big man/woman collectively predispose the unfortunate
affluent Nigerian to a price to pay. That price is in the form of the
likelihood of premature death from
heart attack or suffering a massive
as a complication of high blood pressure.  These two problems can therefore be
considered as a price for the pleasure and pain of affluence, which many Nigerians pay. Even if the victims of
these two horrible conditions escape immediate death, the disabilities that
usually follow are probably worse.  For
example, nothing is more painful than seeing an erstwhile vigorous and
outstandingly productive friend, relative or colleague being maimed by a stroke
or turned into a vegetable as a result of mental deterioration from
hypertension.  It also does not feel good
to think that as a middle class Nigerian, you can be a victim any day.  It probably feels better to think: “It cannot happen to me!” And many take
refuge under that illusion or the belief that it happens to others and not me.

the fact is that the chances are high that any of these horrible conditions can
happen to you or any middle class Nigerian
in his or her middle age, spanning from mid-thirties to the sixties.  On the individual level, this is the period
when one is either at the height of his/her productivity or savors the pleasure
of own life-long labor and productivity. 
It is when family members and loved ones look to the individual for
support and guidance. More importantly for the nation, this is when individuals
are at the height of their productivity in their respective careers; when the
younger generation is supposed to draw on their invaluable knowledge and
experience for leadership, guidance and support.

death and disabilities from stroke and heart attack that afflict this segment
of the Nigerian population has created a near universal feeling of anxiety and
insecurity among middle class Nigerians. 
With so many relatively young blood relatives, friends and acquaintances
often reportedly becoming victims of sudden death or disabilities, one is often
reminded of own vulnerability.  If and
when it does happen, the family is usually devastated.

reader should take a moment to reflect on what might happen to own family if he
or she were to die right now!  Imagine the
fate of the young children at different levels of schooling, the fledging young
adults barely able to support themselves, not to talk of wife and elderly
relatives who depend on you for sustenance. The family that has attained a
notable level of prosperity and progress will suddenly become shattered,
resulting in deem hope for the future. 
Your life-long labor and vision for the family suddenly varnishes with
your own life.  This is a disaster that
can be avoided by your taking the information in this book seriously as well as
taking the simple measures recommended.

Mr. Kunle Onigbanjo, a Lagos Socialite died of Heart related disease couple of years back

relatively early and sudden deaths and disabilities, which happen more among
middle class Nigerians certainly constitute a major drawback to the economic
and political growth and development of the nation.  The frequent reports of the sudden death of
notable political, socio-economic and local leaders in the country certainly
constitute a major drain on the overall development and progress of the nation.  No one who really cares about the self, his
or her family and loved ones, or the growth and development of the Nigerian
nation can afford to take the prevailing problems of early and sudden death
lightly.  They surely deserve both
personal as well as governmental attention at local, state and national levels.
