I challenge him why he didn’t further his education? He responded that he wanted to study medicine but he didn’t gain admission, adding another person came it’s was the same story.
” I went back on my Knees and I told God that I don’t have the resources but use me so that we can be out of this problems.
He explained that, they are carefully choosing the courses so that by the time all the Students pass through the school they can be able to fed for themselves.
