Morris, look for small grammatical errors in these kinds of things.  They
almost always exist, or if not errors, then nonstandard language usage.
Africans generally learn Engish from textbooks instead of the proper method
you and I were priveleged to have: on the playground from other
preschoolers.  For example, "We are having congestions..."  That sounds
Nigerian to me.  Dead giveaway.  spike
