Small small nah, aunty Chimamanda before oyinbo awards go finish.

But come to think of it, no Nigerian university has extended such gesture to her or anybody of her match in recent time.

They prefer politicians and thieves.

That is a reputable school not that fake uni that granted same to linda ikeji
Congrats to her

By the way I learnt many years ago that the difference between college and university is this
The colleges have no post graduate school and universities do
I asked that question when a 4 year college I know changed name to university
Now you know

I was at a beer parlour last week, we were discussing who is the most intelligent tribe in Nigeria, almost everybody said Igbos. Two afonjas there didn't disagree, both nodded but didn't say anything. Finally dawning on them that Igbos have reclaimed their seat vacated due to evil perpetrated by Awolowo; not knowing it will not take long for Igbos to reclaim it. I feel sorry for Afonjas because the way they are regressing in education is very scary; like a rocket ship! Most results seen in the last 2 yrs have them ranked next to Zamfara and Kebbi. Don't be surprised two SW states carry last in the next WAEC! The Davidos and Wizkid, and Oluwale have scattered the brain of these young Afonjas that they no wan go school or take it seriously!
