Nigerian apprentice bags PhD

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a Nigerian man who courageously pursued his academic dreams has finally bagged a PhD. In a Twitter post, the man named Aloysius Odii said he graduated from the University of Nigeria, Nsuka, UNN.

According to Aloysious, before deciding to return to school, he had worked as an apprentice to a business mogul at the Alaba International Market, Lagos. Aloysius said he finished his secondary school before working at Alaba, but the urge to go to school remained strong.

He said he was always reading books while in the market, and his then-boss had told him to try and concentrate on business.
