It's so nice to hear that every one is doing nice.  This post would be broken down into two because I have some web development projects to work on.

Nigeria and Her Enemy Education: Waging War Against the Future?

Nigerian educationAny nation that is working towards advancement and not merely proclaiming advancement does not underestimate the power of education.

 Education has the ability to re-construct a person's mind, which in turn can make the person leave a mark in the sand of times. Little wonder someone said:

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” 
That was a world renowned legend speaking - 
Nelson Mandela.

The way the giant of Africa - Nigeria handles education is pathetic. 

Some months ago, I was at a government-run primary  school in the Lagos metropolis and it was  nothing to be compared to what could be obtained at an average private school. The classroom did not represent the wealth Nigeria claims to
