Reading her profile is a pleasure.
Unfortunately Nigerian universities have not deem it fit to invite her as one of their faculty members,
while foreign universities are benefiting from her wealth of experience.
This shows the static nature of Nigerian education system that is so certificate centric

Depends on what's she's lecturing.
Not every person that doesn't have formal education is dumb and not every person that does is intelligent.

Not just because of problem of education in Nigeria, but because of the system of education handed down to Africa by white people, which doesn't allow us think outside the box.

We're trained to vilify anything we create, to consider our creation as inferior, to exalt white people. That's what the colonial masters told us to do. We were trained to believe the only thing we should consider valuable is what white people consider valuable.

The only reason we're even talking about this woman now is because white people thinks she's valuable. If white people didn't say so, we will all call her a useless illiterate.

Unfortunately, we're going to continue that way until we discard the colonial education handed down to us and create our own version of what education should be.

Well, in Nigeria, we are so fixated on the words written on a piece of paper. Sad really.

I think she was interviewed earlier this year by Richard Quest when he came to Nigeria.

Mrs. Nike really created a name for herself.

Meanwhile, the moribund Nigerian universities will never see her as anything.

She is a Yoruba woman from Kogi state.

She definitely married a Bini man.

By the way, she's an Omoluabi.

you can say that again bro.
In Nigeria, when you don't have that paper called certificate, they take u as an illiterate. Even if you have a whole lotta talent at your disposal, no one looks your way because you have no certificate from the four walls of a classroom. This is the very sad reality of Nigerian system of education

Which Benin? she is from yoruba speaking part of Kogi state. Anyone who did NYSC orientation in kogi nysc camp will know this. Her village is close to the orientation camp. Can't remember the name of that village now.
