  4. Interesting in deed, Ukraine, a poor country who can't face their Russian neighbors in arm combat is going to train the zoo army. So what is the need for the Nigerian defense academy?
    Strong institutions, weak leaders. To hell with them and Ukraine, the zoo must fall. No one is proud to be a Nigerian yet they hold on to it because of fear of the unknown.
