$5 Million offered to anyone who can successfully govern an African nation

Burkina Faso: Country on the Move!

Burkina Faso: Country on the Move!

Do you have what it takes to lead? Do you have any idea how central management works? Have you personally seen the corpses of starved children and people hacking each other’s limbs off with machetes for no discernible reason?

If you’ve answered yes to any or none of these questions, $5 million could be yours!

You think this is some kind of funny joke for comedic funniness?? You’re one plane ticket away from becoming the president of Burkina Faso!

It’s a country!!

Yes glorious Burkina Faso: a completely stable African nation that, like every other sovereign entity on the continent, is just one ambitious visionary away from first-world prosperity. You’re smart, right?

The initiative is the brainchild of Sudanese communications billionaire Mo Ibrahim, who has been very sad at the fact that he hasn’t been able to give the $5 million to anyone in the last 35 years.

“You’d think somebody could dodge bullets for four years when five million dollars is on the line,” claims a weary Ibrahim.

So there you have it: don’t get kidnapped, held for ransom and then ultimately killed in a blood-drenched coup and you too can be a millionaire! Piece of cake!
