Emmanuel Nworie, a Nigerian man who resorted to petty cassava farming after graduating with a first class in mathematics, has left the shores of the country for the United States.
A university in Texas is sponsoring the young man for his PhD after he was discovered by a Nigerian man named Michael Taiwo.
The disclosure was made on Twitter by Suraj Oyewale, who expressed gratitude to Taiwo for discovering the young man.
Tweeps were excited for Nworie and they flooded the comment section to congratulate him.
“Wow, wow, wow. Thank God for this opportunity and thank you @MTforChange for your interest in this young man. I pray this opens up even more doors for himself, his family, and his community and that in due time, he will pay it forward for others to benefit. Congrats!”
