Nigerian student got to the US
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a young man, Emmanuel Chinweuba Nworie succeded. This was after his story went viral in 2020 as a mathematics first-class graduate who had to turn to farming as a way to survive despite his academic performance.
Months after his story became public knowledge, he was offered a scholarship to study for his post-graduate studies.
On Sunday, August 1, Michael Taiwo went on Facebook to write about Nworie, and to inform people that he has finally arrived in the United States.
He described Nworie as a mathematics genius who once won a gold medal in a Nigerian national mathematics competition.
