“I Left the Country with 16,000 naira” said a Nigerian Man
A Nigerian man named Dr Olumuyiwa Igbalajobi,said he left the shores of the country with just N16,000 after winning a scholarship from the Korean government.
He said the scholarship provided all that he needed to leave the country.
“I am forever grateful to the Korean Government Scholarship Program that provides tuition-free, settlement allowance, monthly stipends and flight tickets to successful applicants.”
Today, he is a PhD holder who is flying the flag of his country high in Canada and proving to the world that Nigerians will always succeed wherever they find themselves. Dr Igbalajobi who wrote O-level examinations ten times said he didn’t give up because he was determined to succeed. He said;:
“When I was young, my father had a book titled Success is Never Ending, Failure is Never Final. That stuck with me while I wrote those exams. Yes, at a point, I wanted to pursue another degree with the results I had then because I was really discouraged but thanks to my family, especially my mum, she wouldn’t give up on me.”
