In a Twitter post by the young graduate, he disclosed that he nearly abandoned his programme a year after enrolling at the Central University Business School.

''You know mothers, she motivated me. The stress from Level 100 through 400 but look at me now. A graduate! Wow,'' he said.

Kwesi Tumtum shared the inspirational post along with photos from his graduation as he proudly posed for the lens in his regalia.
