A Nigerian man with the Twitter handle @banney___ has made a case for why having a low CGPA in school does not determine how far a person will go in life.
Using his life as an example, the young man said that despite his expulsion from school because of his bad CGPA, he made it in business.
@banney___ revealed that his business has now grown to the level that he makes his lecturer's salary in a week.
The man, however, said that he is not asking people to drop out as he added that going to school is not worth the effort.
