Popular Nigerian blogger, Instablog has been under serious attacks after using the word "Uneducated" to describe a Katsina man who built beautiful motorcycles from scratches. Recall that story of a Nigerian man simply identified as Engineer Kabir has been trending online for making motorcycles from scratch in Katsina State.
The different motorcycles, manufactured by Kabir, were shared online, eliciting praises from social media users. In one of the posts, it was revealed tha Engineer Kabir, who is based in Garejin Ali Chizo in Katsina state, has no formal education but is highly skilled.
See the beautiful motorcycles that were made by the man.
However, while sharing the post, Instablog used the word Uneducated to describe the man and this has generated angry reactions on Twitter:
The word "Uneducated" sounds rude and unnecessary. What have your "educated" ones done? Africans need to get grip of herself and come off thinking everything should be embedded in education. God has deposited talent in everybody, some people might not have the chance of going to school to groom their talents. Education isn't always about school but deals with knowledge, not books!
The likes of Darwin and cos all wrote great books, they created the knowledge from their guts and minds not from education. So, calling others illiterates, many obvious reasons that we are left behind and backwards!
