A Nigerian Man, Basorge Bastos on Twitter has began and is leading a campaign to recognise and celebrate iconic authors, such as P.N OKEKE, O.Y ABABIO & ANYAKOHA for their immense contribution to education in Nigeria and West Africa.
These authors wrote textbooks on Physics, Chemistry & Physics respectively, which formed the basis of what majority of Nigerian science students know and were taught in schools.
According to Basorge, who specialises on cyber security and digital forensics, as his bio specifies, PN Okeke would be turning 77 on the 30th of October and deserves to be celebrated while he still lives and not posthumous .
As at the time of publishing this story, his tweet has since garnered over 3,000 retweets, likes and comments from people who profess the genius in Professor Okeke and has lent their voices in the call for his recognition as well as other authors earlier mentioned.
