Hehehehehehe grin grin grin

On a serious note, this is what Nigeria needs if we're going to not only remain as a country, but reach our full potential in science, technology and a robust economy: the recognition of hardwork, and that only through putting in your best can you become a success in life; not getting a job and earning a living through bloody quota system, federal character, man-know-man, and ethnicity.

This was how it once was in the 60's: healthy competition among the component units; not monkey dey work and strive while baboon dey chop.

More grease to their grey matter.
