Kofi Asiamah Menzgold mentioned:
It's a plus for the states but truth be told he might end up to be a business student or a procurement , purchasing & supply, human resources management or any banking relating program that adds nothing to our country in terms of production. Teach him science & technology or a technical skills. He shouldn't be at the bank with this kind of brains cos there's lots of bankers in the system.
Good one there . What is his position in Africa? What is his position in the world ranking? What has his position brought to his country? What will be his impact in his country's problem? How is he impacting this world with his position? What this so-called ranking for? ☹️
