The lesson learnt from 'The Fulani Creation Story' is that Doondari cannot tolerate
According to the Fulani Creation Story, Doondari, the creator, cannot tolerate pride. This is shown when the first man Doondari created, Paa, became proud of his physical appearance and started to think he was superior to the other creatures Doondari created. As a result, Doondari punished Paa by making him blind, unable to appreciate his own physical beauty. Thus, the story teaches us the importance of humility and the dangers of pride.
