Wellington Jighere, Scrabble Champion of the World from Nigeria, believes that Nigeria could become the Scrabble capital of the world.
With concerted efforts from our government and the private sector, we truly can become the Scrabble Capital of the world. This will in turn make us the beacon for educational advancement, at least on our continent.
