Our country has failed us. You can't grow up here, go to school here, work here and achieve this kind of feat. Who did we offend in this life? I know a Cowbell mathematics national champion wey no get work today.

The only way to develop yourself
& attain your God given potential
is to leave this country.

No matter how gifted or
talented you are,

ethnicity, nepotism, religious bigotry,
government induced poverty, police brutality, ASSU, hungry lecturers, quota system, fulani herdsmen,
Boko haram,stepmother, village ppl etc, etc will gang up
to extinguish your star;

If you escape one, another one
will get you.

Mehhhnnnn
I'm leeeaving, on a jet plane.

The focus of the article is to celebrate the young man. Sadly, negative-minded no-gooders like you will always reduce it to an opportunity to insult everything 'Nigerian'. Get a life, no be everything be an opportunity for senseless criticism.
