    Hello, I have gone through the list and I think it’s a really nice write-up.
    It’s a beautiful reminder of the ethnical diversity of our fine country,
    I however would like to draw ur attention to the aspect of the tribe u called “Benin” if by “Benin” you actually meant the largest ethnic group in Edo state, south south Nigeria, then pls note that we are not called “Benin” or “Binis” as some people might erroneously assume, we are called “Edo” or “Edos” a formal declaration of this correction was made by the Oba of Benin a few years back.
    Thanks.
