shocked

She entered the University to study Admimistration and law at 14 (and graduated from Administration at 17, that's 3yrs!) and graduated from Law @ 18yrs. She studied two courses concurrently!


Sierra Leone should loan Nigeria some tips from their education system.

It is possible in Nigeria. It's just that it is not given much publicity. There are graduates who are under 20 years even in professional courses like Engineering.

Some people will not be able sleep tonight. They fail to realize that Yoruba have been leading in every area. They think south west is a joke when it comes to breaking record. We are better by far and they know this just that they will never own up to the reality. God bless oduduwa.

How is she the youngest lawyer in Africa when in Nigeria, you can't call someone a lawyer 'till he/she is called to bar? Please call her the youngest lawyer in Sierra Leone, not Africa. That said, admitting her into the University at the age of 14 was an injustice to her. Let kids grow as kids. Fortunately for her parents; it turned out well for them.
