It makes me reflect my own background too; therefore, I hereby adopt him ”On receiving the N5M gift,and showing the greatest of appreciation, a grateful Fuad was full of ‘thanks’ as he emphasized how useful the financial aid and scholarship will be to him.Olugbenga was one of the five selected Hesselbein International Scholars from Africa to participate in the Hesselbein Global Leadership Summit at the prestigious Hesselbein Global Academy for Student Leadership and Civic Engagement, at the University of Pittsburgh, in the US.
