A student reportedly from the University of Benin (UNIBEN) has made a funny submission in a viral video and drawn massive reactions on social media.
In the clip shared by @Instablog9ja on Instagram, he and other students had markings on white shirts that show it must have been on their sign-out day.

The man speaking directly into the camera filming him said:
"Na mumu dey do masters. Go and hustle. Enter Ghana, enter Ghana.
There were some murmurs and words of agreement from others in the video as the man laughed after every sentence.

Meanwhile, it was earlier reported that a Nigerian man with the handle @banney___ made a case for why having a low CGPA in school does not determine how far a person will go in life.
Using his life as an example, the young man said that despite his expulsion from school because of his bad CGPA, he made it in business.
@banney___ revealed that his business has now grown to the level that he makes his lecturer's salary in a week.
