The director-general of Sokoto Information and Communication Technology Directorate, Nasir Daniya, has shared his life's transformation pictures.
Sharing four photos on the platform, Nasir said that things could change with a strong belief in self, hard work, and prayer.
According to the man, the first frame showed when he was making a service charge of R10 as a barber with few resources. He added that the second picture was him as a driver trying to make ends meet. The third snap showed the man during his wedding ceremony.
Many years after, the man graduated with his PhD from the London Metropolitan University.

Many people took to his comment section to wish him well. As at the time of writing this report, his tweet has over 1 000 likes with hundreds of comments.

Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za earlier reported on a hilarious story about a barber visit. While some professionals are hitting the nail on the head for their customers, others simply are not - this poor man unfortunately is one of the many who ended up disappointed.
Taking to Twitter, @ratchedrxlph shared pictures of his dismal haircut. In the caption of the hilarious post, he explains how all he wanted was a simple fade - and that is certainly not what he had received.
"Just a fade, that’s all I wanted," he captioned the post.
