... USSR kept US on her toes for a very long time, forcing her to keep up with the technological development of the Russians.
too bad they could never build a decent commercial car .... the Lada is an embarrassment

Given the right environment, I have no doubt that Nigeria and Nigerians will surprise the world in almost every aspect of human endeavour.

All we need is mass science education in Africa. I've been crying out loud for this for ages.

Once Africa get science right, we will be so much technologically advanced and wealthy that white people can only envy us. We already have a natural potential to out-do the rest of the world, just that we're still in inertia.

Please what's the meaning of your Moniker?
'Aareonakakanfo' means the chief warlord of the Oyo empire and the yoruba land at large. Then, it was a legendary title bestowed on courageous individuals of high spiritual standing. But now, it has become more like a ceremonial title.



Back to the topic, students being doing what their lecturers don't have the intellectual capability to do. All most of our lecturers do is to carry their Sec Sch note come teach students. Kudos to our great students.

Nigerians have school mixed up, school is meant for you to learn a theory and then you go out experiment and build something but along hte line we have been taught that school is to learn theory and find a job which shd not be so

Whatever the Americans and the rest have done, Nigerians can do and even better. We just need a govt that funds and provides the facilities for research and development. We also need Hi-tech investors

Am sorry I don't want to be a party pooper but most smart phones have an application that does this. e.g Siri on the iPhone and talk back on androids and they aren't bulky just in-app. The funny thing is if you travel abroad "basic" projects like this are done by teenagers. its commendable but we going gaga about this just shows how low the educational standard is, especially if its developed by probably the best students in one of the so called best in the country. its a basic software with level 1 difficulty. let's take a look and India and see what goes on there, you would understand. A college kid would do that even better without breaking sweat. This is basic coding. No big deal.

This is the reason I strongly advise the new government to consider a "new technology hub"in every major city (Lagos, Kano, Port Harcourt, Enugu, Kaduna, Abuja) which can be as small as a multi-storey office building or as large as a village for young brilliant minds to develop and garner skills in latest software and hardware technology. In 5 years, Nigeria will surpass India in new technology revolution; massive reduction in unemployment; and there will be a major outsource of expertise to neighboring African countries and beyond.

Globalization, environmentalism and sustainability are the sure fire ways for human capital development.

Well done guys!
