A large number of Africans (including myself) come to the WEST for higher
education and remain here. This is a major problem in many developing countries.
Unless we go back and tackle the obvious problems ourselves who is going to do
it for us.
Criticising somebody's effort is easy. It is important that WE Africans to go back home and use our experience where it really matters.
