Tobechi Chigbu Posted about 2 years ago I'm trying to excite tertiary education institutions in Nigeria to explore the alumni option in funding their needs. Any thoughts and help? Thank you very much my friend for your words of encouragement. It means much to me as well as the methodology you suggested. I assure you that this idea of mine has consumed me to the degree that I feel that I owe it to my country to actualise it, and I will do my very best. Africa needs to look inward and harness its latent richness which to my mind is her only way get there. She must pull herself by her own bootstraps and then fly. Romanticism is one attribute Africa has in great abundance. Those of you from the West cannot begin to understand it. Unfortunately, there is also ineptitude on the part of the majority of our pollicy makers who need to be jolted to life's realities and to competition from abroad. Wel will get there though! We only require a little hands-up (not hand-down) from the developed world.
