A Nigerian man, Gift Odoh, has finally triumphed despite the long years he spent in school for a programme he ought to have finished sooner.

In a post he made on LinkedIn, Odoh said that he wasted two extra years on a 5-year-programme because of ASUU strikes and “unnecessarily long sessional breaks”.

He said that while he was in school, some of his mates who went to private schools had gone into other phases of their lives like marriage.
