A man who got N100 equivalent to GH¢1.40 as a crash prize for being the overall best graduating student has proven that a person’s success is not tied to what they read in school.
The man, identified as Bamisaye Tosin Tope first went viral in 2018 after he graduated from Ekiti State University as the best student in civil engineering; was given a cash prize of N100 (Ghc 1.40).
