    There are already hausa pmirary schools in the north . The problem lies in the quality of teachers hence the education the children receive. i’m fully in support of teaching in hausa but we need better educated and trained teachers to do so. but how many educated Nigerians want to teach in a local language?My aunts and cousins read hausa novels like mad and some of them are really excellent even though majority of them are silly love stories. and yes even ‘illiterates’ read them because it is easy for them to read hausa alphabets since it almost directly corresponds to the ajami (hausa written in arabic letters) that a lot of them grow up reading.

    we can start designing and prdciotuon/manufacturing products like bottons, agro allied machines, alternative power generation devices and most equipmets, industrial machineries and spare parts in this country to international standards. we can start mass prdciotuon of clothes, tooth pics, combs, and most of the products we imported from china, we can do better than china. whoever is concerned pllease encourage us. most of our substandard local producers will do better with time or we can fast track it by teaching them how to do it better. i love nigeria, i love nigerians, i love the president, i love the governors, senators, reps, and our media stations you can help nigeria ealier than 2020.tunji ishola08099692415, 08021215661
