Why Do Most Undergraduates In Nigeria Lack Quality Textbooks?

17

Last month, I was opportuned to visit a certain Federal University, and met with some of my friends, who are students. And there was something I noticed: most, if not all of them, seemed to lack hardcopy textbooks, on the various courses they're taking, and rely majorly of PDFs books and all that. Using a soft copy, as a replacement for the hard copy of a particular textbook, poses a lot of limitations. Imagine if you have a 5 inch smartphone, how are you going to read a 600 page textbook efficiently on that size of screen? I know most of these advanced textbooks are really expensive, and scarce, but for someone like me who prefers hardcopy, I don't know how I'll cope with that.
