. It's funny, until you realize that, they've been ruling the country for over 75% of the years after independence, that though literacy level in the region might be low, the educated ones are usually very ambitious and successful, that the richest man in Nigeria is an Hausa.

Great information OP!

But I'm more interested in what problems their research has solved. Alot of these professors in Nigeria especially are antiquated and more of theory oriented. But good info all the same.
