CNN Goofed!

How come CNN is referring to Nigeria as Sub Saharan when they can say simply that he was visiting Nigeria!

Stella they are actually right. According to the united nation's geographic demarcation and demographics Nigeria is a sub Saharan country. Sub-Saharan Africa is, geographically, the area of the continent of Africa that lies south of the Sahara desert.

Maybe he's gone to other parts of Africa,say north Africa but never sub Saharan Africa. People shouldn't read upside down

OluVee said...

If it was a bad news nw,they wil remember to call the name 'Nigeria'

James said...

Stella I have always known that Nigeria is among the sub Saharan countries. So I had to go to Google just to be sure.

NIGERIA IS SUB SAHARAN AFRICAN COUNTRY. DOES THE SAHARA DESERT CROSS THROUGH NIGERIA?

Bels said...

Ofcourse nah! Nigeria is among the sub-saharan countries.

keke driver said...

I do not think it's CNN's fault, even on Mark's page, He wrote Sub-Saharan Africa, Nigeria.

Unfortunately,that is what we will ever be in their hearts. If possible they will remove the Sub and just land us in Sahara deserts.

It suits Nigerians, especially when even amongst us,we look down on other people from other places. Igbos look at Yorubas as dirty people, Ndi ofe mmanu, while Hausas are Abokis and are not meant to have anyone that can speak good english cos it is the birthright of Ibos.
Yorubas on the other hand look at Igbos as traders and the tribe that loves money. Why won't foreigners even always look for adjectives to portray us in a very bad state. Even geographically.

Dark Horse said...

You guys should take a chill pill. Who told you that Stella doesn't know Nigeria is a sub-saharan country?? She's only saying that Nigeria is the country being visited and not the whole sub-sahara Africa

Starjoy said...

Nigeria is actually Sub Sahara.

James said...

White Diamond, are you kidding me? With all your plenty grammar. SMH

James said...

Ghana man, are you kidding me ?

Una no do geography ni?

Tetrina said...

Errrr sorry o but how is this racism? It's just lack of knowledge hun, doesn't necessarily mean they are racists.

Mrs. Romas said...

We all know that Nigeria is part of Sub-Sahara Africa, but what stops CNN from say/writting Nigeria.
Is not that difficult. These people will boldly write NIGERIA if it was anything criminal.

That is how they will be listening to Nigerian artists songs and they will be writting West Africa music. Enough already.
Some other will pretend to spoil the pronunciation of Nigerian tribal names; claiming is too difficult. But we Nigerians can easily pronounced their names even the Europeans, claiming African names are difficult to pronounce. They forgot to teach them how to pronounce words in school.

What are you on about? There is nothing bad with being grouped under Sub Sahara nne. It is not a curse word.

Nigeria is a sub Sahara Africa's but when did they start to forget or distinguish or call out Nigeria's name as a country.

I don't think it's a mistake but a strategic way to promote his image of visiting a continent with the largest population for his market without confining him to a "volatile country "as ours

bakejimmy said...

God forbid o! if anything bad happens to mark in Nigeria, WILL CNN MENTION SUB-SAHARA AFRICA OR NIGERIA.
