13-Year-Old Esther Okade who made headlines in 2015 after CNN revealed that the British-Nigerian was one of the UK’s youngest fresher’s after she enrolled at the Open University, a UK-based distance learning college, in January 2015 at the age of 10 and was on top of her class
Twitter account, @BlackToLive, which celebrates anything concerning black excellence, shared a photo of Esther, with a caption; “Meet Esther Okade, a 12-year-old college genius who is set to earn her PhD by 2018”.
However, Tolu Ogunlesi – One of President Buhari’s media aid, says he doesn’t see anything worth celebrating about this, asking what a 13-year-old would be doing with a PhD.
What do you think of Tolu’s statement?
