Man goes from finishing with 2.2 in Nigeria and being rejected by UK to becoming the best
Meanwhile, legit.ng previously reported that a Nigerian man who had finished from a university in the country with 2.2 emerged the best student in an European school after more than 16 rejections.
Obi's result served as a bottleneck as all foreign applications he made to further his studies were turned down including the ones made to US, UK and Canada universities.
An undeterred Obi said he applied to study in another European university, in Cyprus precisely and succeeded. He not only finished with a higher honour result but went on to become the best student of the year and also bagged a placement for PhD studies.
Four years on, Obi became an associate professor and had his software, BuildTech, approved by a UK body and consequently got a special visa to establish a lab in London.
