In related news, Legit.ng reported that Tony Elumelu shared his successful journey from how he got his first banking job and how he rose to become one of Nigeria's most successful and influential men.
The billionaire businessman revealed in a Facebook post that even though he knew he did not meet the requirements for a banking job, he applied anyway after attaining his Master's degree.
Elumelu stated that he had always admired the banking profession from afar. It was always a pleasure for him to watch the practitioners of the profession as they were always impeccably dressed.
As fate would have it, he got the job regardless of his 2.2 grade, which was lower than the 2.1 grade required by the advertisers. He, however, spent every day trying to prove himself to the company.
