Who Are The Most Educated Nigerians?

Higher education is the bedrock of any nation's growth. Educational pursuit in Nigeria is a serious issue, but for one reason or the other, not all Nigerians show interest in that endeavour. Therefore, who are the most educated Nigerians at the moment? The North or the South? The East or the West?

Nigeria has many highly educated people living in it, as education is one of the top priorities for Nigerians. Yes, they say Yoruba tribe has the largest number of educated people. But they are not the only ones. Presently education is available to the wide range of population. And education is not about the degree or number of years in University. Self-education is crucial, too. Find out more about the prominent Nigerian poets and learn what tribe they come from. Follow the link below.

Some believe that Yoruba is one of the most educated tribes in Nigeria. There are many actors in Nollywood from Yoruba tribe. And of course NIgerian Noble prize winner Wole Soyinka is also a yoruba. Do you agree?

Nigeria's GDP that supports education is currently at 0.9%

This is NOT a country that promotes the Education of its people.

Therefore, the illiterates will continue to RULE and all the smart people will be shut out.

Flip this statistic toward Pro-Education and Nigeria will RISE!

quota system, cut off mark for each state and number of state universities not federal universities.

I am from ondo state and can remember that though i scored 181 out of 300 in the 1990 jamb, i was in the supplementary list while my best friend who scored less than 180 was on the first batch into unilag.

When i SAT for Poly jamb, I was advised to forget Yabatech thta Ondo students were disadvantaged but I passed easily. I went to a high paying secondary so I had a firm foundation.

This anyway does not matter. The education system needs repair and the best education anyway is spiritual which is "beneficail nolt only in the life now but also in thta which is to come"(1 Tim 4:8 and John 17:3).

That education everything!

Man, world don spoil. Back in the day, kids could walk around anywhere they went without fear of danger. I used to walk from Housing to Iweka Rd. to get little electronic toys (age 10 or even less), walk to Ochanja market, sometimes we stray all the way up to "Culvert" i.e. Ugwunabamkpa or something (they have the Grail Message Building there now). Go to where old men looking to join Nigeria's U-17 team are playing, buy groundnut and banana, kwuli kwuli from the Northerner. . .Good times!

Now kids can't even go anywhere!

Why are you so upset?

My idea of education is never ending, something one must do for the rest of ones life. My idea of education is worldwide, not just westernized. I think everywhere on this planet matters and not one group of people should dictate exactly what education is. I am not studying to become a doctor but I study for my self by reading and researching what diseases are and how people get sick. I do that because my interest is holistic healing, I am educating my self but not just from an American perspective. I don't think everything needs a drug or a shot so I have to find ways to prove that. By trade, I am a Pre-School teacher but I have many interest outside of teaching so I study many different things. To me, that is education, learning about the things that interest me and help me to understand the world that I live in as well as understand my self.

I can imagine many reason why you think I am making fun of Nigerians by asking that question but let me tell you, none of what you think is true.

I asked you Nigerians, what does education mean? what exactly is it? I asked because from what I can see, too many Nigerians, education is the only way to make good money and one must educate their self in a field that will guarantee good economic money for a long time and after they are rewarded for their education with a god job, the education seems stops there.

My only motive for asking that question to Nigerians was to see if my observation was correct or incorrect.

Institute discovers herbal cure for AIDS

From Iyabo Lawal, Ibadan

Monday, February 19, 2007

HOPE of a lasting cure to the dreaded HIV/AIDS brightened at the weekend as the Executive Director of the Forestry Research Institute of Nigeria (FRIN), Dr. Solomon Badejo, disclosed that the institute has discovered medicinal plants for the treatment of the disease and other similar ailments.

An elated Badejo disclosed this in Ibadan, Oyo State capital while conducting the Minister of Environment, Housing and Urban Development, Chief Helen Esuene round the institute.

The institute's boss listed the scientific breakthroughs recorded by the team of researchers and solicited government's efforts at sustaining the feat.

He explained that the digitisation of African type specimens under the API programme sponsored by the Andrew Melon Foundation, U.S.A, was in progress.

The FRIN boss also informed the minister of the institute's development of the use of sawmill wood wastes - principally sawdust - and wood shavings from sawmills and plant markets, for the production of ceiling boards, floor tiles and wall tiles.

Badejo added that FRIN had established and continue to maintain the largest Forest Herbarium (FHI) in West African with a collection of 107,294 plant specimens inclusive of the documentation of the medicinal uses of some of the plants.

You know that the slowpoke that made "Igbo girls like money too much" thread was merely replying to the other that made the "Why are Yoruba girls so skanky" thread, you know this right?

Also the chick who made the "I hate Igbo people" thread, her name is Gamine and she's not Yoruba either.

Please clean the egg off your face. oponu.
