Folk story writers from around the world, who may like their stories published on this site, should feel free to forward them as e-mail attachments to info@bukarusman.com.

Registered members of this site will, in the near future, access from here, at a discount, exotic art works, traditional crafts and implements, local fabrics and dresses, etc, and other cultural objects from the unique socio-cultural milieu in which Dr. Usman's folk stories are rooted. 
   We shall also be offering FREE travel advisory services and tourist features to all visitors who may be planning to visit some of Nigeria's - and indeed Africa's - tourist destinations.
