YEAH IT DOES, BUT NOT AS OFTEN AND EXCITING AS IT WAS BEFORE. THAT OF KANO AND ZARIA ARE STILL INTACT AND IN SHAPE, BUT I DON'T KNOW OTHERS.

I used to race horses at Kano and the other racecourses. I had four at one point though only one of them was any good. It was named "Fats Domino". I gave the others silly names. "Cary Grunt", "Gregory Peck" "Tony Curtain" except one with a Nigerian name - "Dattijo" - which sadly broke a leg at Kano races.

It wasn't so old, but it had a white face and mane which made it look like an old man.

Isnt it strange that only Kano State is displayed in satellite images of  IKONOS or QUICKBIRD (not sure which) on Google Earth? anybody know why? Even the great Abuja is in the dynasauric ages of landsat images!!!

It is not really strange that Kano City & its environs is the only city in Nigeria. I think this is probably because the Google Earth (FREE Version) partner, Digital Global has created a detailed GIS mapping for one of it's Client - The Kano State Ministry of Land and Physical Planning, and that it probably decided to make that product sample available on Google Earth (FREE Version) at this time.
Take heart though that Ibadan and Lagos are being planned for inclusion in the near future?.  Anyway here is my neck of the woods on Google Earth (FREE Version) in Kano? http://www.kanoonline.com/samples/SalisuDanyaro'sNeckoftheWoodsinHotoro.kmz
