    …I remember the University of Nigeria (my alma mata) as the first place (UNTH) where open heart surgery was successfully carried out in this part of the world, Prof. Animalu (then called the Einstein of Africa) was the first scientist to demonstrate in concrete terms the use of solar energy in the automobile industry. I was privileged to witness first hand his demonstration of what came to be known as the prototype first solar energy driven car. These are just a few of the chain of inventions that I witnessed as astudent in the UNN…but today that same UNTH produces doctors blacklisted in the UK, and the country of origin of Prof. Phillip Emeagwali, the inventor of the supercomputer is now one whose graduates are internationally ridiculed and rejected.
    The time to save Nigeria from total and final death is right now.

  7. Dr. Armah Elibe says:

    When will Nigerians begin to genuinely worry about the slow motion death of the only country they can call theirs ? Our country Naija has been seriously ill for a long time and few Nigerians seem to worry. All the institutions that made us proud in the past have all been eroded completely. Our economy is in tatters, sports ( football) our only bond of unity and international trademark was slaughtered by the NFF, education is dead and our graduates a collosal source of national shame and embarrassment.
    In those good days our standards in education was our national pride, graduates of foreign universities had to write proficiency examinations to have their qualifications recognised in Nigeria,never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that we could get to this present mess. Every thing that used to be of high quality in Nigeria has lost it all because of the lack of a government ( we have only been having soldiers of fortune that call themselves politicians/leaders)…and I ask when will Nigerians arise and reclaim their Nation?
