It’s graduation season in the USA and a great time for celebration, thanksgiving and reminiscing into the future. It is also worthy of note that a great number of African names especially Nigerians are mentioned during the honor role.

I strongly recommend that the Nigerian Government should institute a scholarship or grant to encourage such feats abroad and attract this crop of dynamic, young and brilliant minds to return home and contribute positively to the economic growth of the country.
