It could also be recalled that when former president Bill Clinton was asked ” if he wasn’t a citizen of United States, which country would he want to be her citizen”, he answered without hesitation ‘Nigeria’. He said go to Silicon Valley, and you will understand why I want to be a Nigerian. He added, they also have the highest number of qualified medical doctors within the shores of United States of America. Everyday or year we always hear the great news of achievements by Nigerians in United States of America. A book published by a Yale University professor of Chinese extraction, mentioned Nigerians, Chinese, Iranians, Indians as one of the most achieving and educated migrants in United States. That also make some of us speak about the brain drain out of Nigeria or Africa in general.
