Comment17 Ejeh Dennis , December 28, 2017 at 8:52 p.m.:

incredibly lucid lectures.
Thank you Professor for the free lectures, even though I paid phone bills to watch your videos is nada compared to what I benefited from it.
I wish Nigeria had professors and lecturers like you.
Your lectures on Maxwell's equations are incredibly simple, from the lucidity, the rigorous dept you delve into
and of course the humour you enchant your students with.
Let me try some amusement too.
Try to put on a bushy hair wig and look at your image in the mirror which German Theoretical Physicist you look like.(you mustn't forget to wear a mustache during this exercise.)
