    was it this week or last week too that Nigerian Central Bank bobo went to teach other African Central Banks, and the grand mufti of Buharinomics himself, the Professeur Ayatollah Buhari led some economic development conference. oh Lord.
    if I was one of those gentle African presidents in attendance, when my translator sets my beats headphones en Francais or whatever I would gently switch the channel to play some Yemi Alade or Papa Wemba to pass the time,
    let teacher not teach me nonsense.

    Africa! Africa! We still need to learn something about education and knowledge-sharing. You do not reproduce with your worst, no, you reproduce with your best. That’s how my dad told me that in his school back in the day, his physics teacher was an old graduate returned to teach. he’d got a P in physics. at least it was not an F. and i guess they didn’t have any A students to use (the system was A C P F – A1 A2 A3 C4 C5 C6 P7 P8 F9)

    If the bottom of the class is what you use to teach, employ in universities, imagine what a bonkom training you will be passing on.

    If the one who raised inflation and is still working hard to bring the currency to its knees while at the same time claiming to not know why the laws of physics are working against him, if that’s the one you keep giving the mic at your economic roundtables, don’t be surprised when olodocracy becomes your case. i don’t know if Bubu is a P8 or F9 in economic transformation, or just plain beyond F level, but I do know Africa has As everywhere that we choose to ignore – so they go to Europe and America looool.
