Excerpt 103-My best gift to my beloved Africa
My thoughts about my people was centred on my struggles in the land of my birth. I remembered growing up in the west of Nigeria, with a hausa grandmother. it was not always easy to laugh at some of the tribal jokes. I remembered being told sternly never to marry an Ibo person and an Ibadan,Ijebu or Ogbomoso etc.. it was very confusing to see the hatred among a people that shared a nation.
