Preach on dude. There need to be a change in the mindset of Nigerians if we really want to move forward. University education is not the only way to succeed or to be productive.The worse part is that Nigeria university education system isn't very efficient. There is one advantage though, lots of graduates can speak big english, and they have good grammar construction, unfortunately, that is the only good in them. #NoBeef
