    Mr writer, let me ask you what you really mean by education in this concept. If you mean the real education that I and others know, then you are very wrong in your research

    Niger Delta is the only region in Nigeria people speak both pigeon and correct English even in remote locations both old and young, can you say the same for the northern region or the west even the east.

      The problem with the Fulanis is that only few of them can present their certificate when they’re asked to do so. So, you can’t blame the writer on that. I like your grammatical construction by the way, it only shows the writer might be wrong after all.

    it’s wrong. the major tribe that you mation is not so, I can agree with you for yoruba own but hausa no na. go to benue State and ask of idoma people they’re well educated people when can speak English and you will find it difficult to identify their language unless they speak it out.for Igbo Biko let go. for hausa dualam i no go go. for yoruba you will identify them from their tough.

    From all indications the writer of this piece is from Niger Delta region. When majority of ur people speak pigeon English and cannot write, it doesn’t mean they are educated.

    When you started I thought you were going to be sincere in what you are doing. But I come to see that your findings are just limited to what you know. Without much consultation you decide on what you know. Please I encourage you to find out about the TIV people. Thanks
