even South Africa sef assuming he didn't have funds or sponsorship for the countries you mentioned.
it's possible he didn't want to leave his family behind,you have to pay bills while doing the PhD and care for your kids and wife.

This just defines the useless University system we have in Nigeria, I started masters at University of Ilorin in 2012, passed all my course work, no reset whatsoever, many of us made As and Bs but our thesis na problem, you need to know a strong lecturer that will back you up during your seminar or else they will rubbish your work. Me I have moved on with my life, I can't come and kill myself, let them eat it. Nigeria is bleeped

AKswift:
Same with my school l had my first degree: it takes 3-4yrs to get a masters degree, same degree that is possible within three semesters in the US....

A junk school will give u masters in 3 semesters in the US. To get a masters degree, in the US, you must complete 36 credit hours or at least 30 in some cases

So which reputable school will allow u take 4 courses of 3 credit hours each per semester in the US? ... don't forget some courses are prerequisites to others, so don't wish for what u don't know

There is nothing wrong about his suicide. He had one mission and one mission alone. To defeat Mathematics and he failed at it and decided that it is time he quits the matrix.

We should rather be thankful for his sincerity of purpose, in quitting when he failed and not blaming others for his inability to win and above all, for his steadfastness in using his brains and brains alone, not his coins, not his loins and definitely not onions.

Real souls do not die, we simply change the vehicle. There is no point to wish his Soul to rest in Peace. Peace is illusion, he is everywhere as Numbers and Maths in the Universe. We all are.
Change vehicle to where? Another planet or another cosmic place shocked

Some lecturers don't even do their phd in their school. ..they go to other schools. .and that should be the best. ..the competition in Nigerian universities is too toxic. ..funny thing is that same hand out of year 2000 is what they will still use in 2019...education is not even in Buhari's agenda...

Our bodies are Space Suit designed for Spirit to steer on Mission Earth. You should rather be asking where the origin of your Soul is and especially the home of your Spirit, that is where you will like to return to, alternatively you can go to another planet or design your own Universe the way you like it and create beings who will call you God, and worship you if you so desire to be worshipped. It is all a game. A Cosmic Reality Experience.

And I am enjoying it with nearly all my junk DNA fully activated grin

To me
My own personal opinion
I think the lecture is to be blamed for it.
The singular act of suicide negates all of the good things he has done or the bad things the university has done
There are a lot of people going through bad times
Not excluding me,sometimes I do feel like just giving up and ending it so the pain would go away
Sometimes I do question my very existence
But my religion Islam wouldn't let me have that courage
Suicide wouldn't make the pain or troubles go away
It will just be the real beginning of your troubles
And the worst part,you won't have the opportunity of correcting it again
The fear if the tribulations of the grave is enough to give someone sleepless nights,let alone you murdering yourself.
