Yoruba Gbayi.
Omoluabis 4r show.

When talking about sheer Human resources and brain power, give it to the West, although other regions are trying too, especially East.. infact, the south in general and some parts of MB. wink
Normally, if things were the way they should be, Southern Nigeria would be the undisputed light of the entire black race world over. Coronavirus jam our purposeless and wicked leaders. angry
