Bello Solomon said:

"Congratulations Master Nduka. My expectation is to see you starting your own program geared towards impacting knowledge on youths who are less chanced to experience the level of your exposure. It will be nice seeing you mentoring others with all you have gained from the great Tony Elumelu.
"So many people wants to be mentored by him but I guess he can only do that for the best. It is left for you guys to use yourself as a point of contact for so many others aspiring to learn from that great mind."
