Amouna and Hauwa, two daughters of Borno-born billionaire, Alhaji Mohammed Indimi graduated from the University of Lynn, in Florida, USA.
Their joyous billionaire father donated a $14 million (N4.2 billion) complex named after him as "Mohammed Indimi International Business Center" to Lynn University as part of the activities of the University Commencement Day.
This demagogue made his billions in Nigeria from oil wells his military dictator friend dashed him.
He is the Chairman, CEO of Oriental Oil and Gas and he is reported as the tenth richest billionaire in Nigeria.
The Borno-born billionaire, Mohammed Indimi has never ever donated a plastic chair to the University of Maiduguri or any university in the Niger Delta; talk more of endowing a chair in any Nigerian university.
But the irony is that he can afford to endow a chair and donate a $14 million complex to a US University, which by the way does not even need such gesture from him.
Hundreds of internally displaced people in Borno state need his Robinhood-like assistance from what he has stolen from the people. But whosai!
Ladies and gentlemen, this is how Nigerian elite underdeveloped Nigeria, with due apologies to Walter Rodney, the author of the book, "How Europe underdeveloped Africa."
