Nigerians used to be the most educated people in the world until the likes of Abacha and the Murtala Muhammed came and scattered our educational system to slow down the South so that the North can catch up, instead of speeding up the North- Paul Adefarasin, Senior pastor of House On The Rock.
How do you endear yourself to the Northern half of the country? Call them stupid. I can totally imagine Obama calling all Americans below the Mason-Dixon line "inbred hicks". It would do so much for his approval ratings.
Tact, this man has none of it.
