"I cannot do blood money because I was to be useful to Nigeria, my family, myself, and God."
The graduate who said that his entertaining skill once won him an award during his National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) days added that he could not raise a capital to start his own outfit.
My father borrowed for my education
According to him, his father told him he was unable to raise a loan for him as his university education was sponsored with borrowed money.
The LAUTECH graduate said that his father told him he ought to be reaping his labour on him already. Idowu was in tears when he heard that.
He stated that he wanted his school to give him all the school fees he had spent in exchange for the "useless" certificate so he can use the sum to better himself.
