This website has a number of links to Nigerian/African information sources.  We do not update these links frequently, other than to check that they still link to real sites.  

Provision of links is no longer so important, as all this information comes back quickly with a Google search.  But they may guide FON members on what to look for.  Please let us know of other sites that should be listed here.
