This is inspiring. this paper certificate of a thing..class of degree does not always reflect the ability and intelligennce of an individual. Let's focus more on what people can do and give them the opportunity than writing them off at mere sight of their certificates

I love this story . This is an inspiration to hard working youths . This story is as important as the foundation he established to nurture young Africans to success.

Last year, Jim Ovia the founder of Zenith Bank also told us how he started as a young man from nothing until by Providence he got to where he is. It was a very motivating story.

This is the kind of story we need or needed by youths instead of how celebrities or yahoo boys live a life of opulence which source of wealth they cannot defend.

TEYA:

University education is overrated. The bolded is not necessarily true. Many programmers are not university graduates and are way far better at coding than the typical first class graduates.

The owner of nairaland is just one person. University degree (especially in computer science) is over rated.
Mark Zuckerberg: Not a graduate
Bill gates: Not a graduate
Steve Jobs: Not a graduate
And so are lots of their employees.

Transcript: Tony Elumelu’s Opening Remarks at the JETRO Japan Africa Business Forum

The Chairman of Transcorp, Tony O. Elumelu’s Opening Remarks at the JETRO Japan Africa Business Forum in Yokohama, Japan

First, I must thank Chairman Nobuhiko Sasaki of the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) for organising this important event, and I specially commend his team for all the effort put into a seamless conference.

Just January this year, I hosted Mr. Ishige, the previous JETRO Chairman, in Lagos, at the United Bank for Africa (UBA) headquarters, Africa’s Global Bank.

Mr. Ishige requested that it was imperative that I attend the TICAD 7 conference to promote a new message of trade and investment between Japan and Africa, and he was absolutely right.

I stand before you as Chairman of the United Bank for Africa, Africa’s global bank with presence in 20 African countries as well as offices in the United Kingdom, France and the only Sub-Saharan African bank with deposit taking license in the United States of America.
