Zango: Yes Mohammed, I keep telling people that I am not a graduate of any university or polytechnic and that I do not have a degree. But I think education goes beyond just having a degree or whatever. If an individual can make and contribute positive things to himself and the people he lives with; learn from them and give back that knowledge he has in whatever capacity, I think that is real education. I have so much experience in life and I am well educated in my own capacity. It doesn’t have to be a degree or Masters or whatever. I think at some point in life one has to get educated. It only depends on how you use your education to benefit the people.
