"Which country in Africa is home to the largest population", I asked the young bright face in front of me.My head hurts!
"China", she shouted back almost instantly.
I looked at her with a smile borrowed from years of experience with young undergraduate students.
"Are you sure?", I asked.
"Yes I am because they have more than a billion people there", she insisted.
"But China is not on the African continent", I said.
She looked back with a furrowed brow as a slow smile of recognition crept over her face.
"Oh yes that is true ... China is more like in Europe", she declared.
"Right ... and China's capital city would be Lagos, right?", I said.
"I don't know but is this question going to be on our final exam", she asked somewhat exasperated.
"No it won't be on your exam. I'll stick with the easier questions on foreign policy formulation and implementation", I replied.
Wonder what Mita is doing at home?
Onward! ... if even slowly.
