Meanwhile Legit.ng earlier reported that Olumuyiwa Igbalajobi had to take the compulsory West African Examination Council examination a 10th time before he had a successful outing.

He said he has now travelled to Korea, Germany and Canada, all within 8 years.

The graduate from the University of Ado Ekiti, Ekiti achieved all that thanks to educational scholarships he secured that covered his flight trips and tuition fees and his never-give-up attitude to life.

Olumuyiwa who currently is a Research fellow at MSL, University of British Columbia, Canada challenged his followers not to give as their dreams are still valid.
