Certainly, China has growing stakes in Africa.
Total SA, on the other hand, will probably be glad to get rid of an adventure in a country where killings of Christians by Muslims are a daily occurence. Nigerians also tap the oil pipelines, and the whole country is one big mess. Instead of using oil revenues to advance Nigeria as a country worth living in, Nigeria's corrupt bureaucracy is booming.
Germany's Bilfinger & Berger, a major construction company, has sold most of its shares in Nigeria, too.
