Popular activist, Aisha Yesufu is celebrating her son, Amir who just graduated from a British university. She recently broke the good news on her social media page, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to her, she is very proud because her son achieved a lot with his education despite being dyslexic.
Aisha Yesufu added that it is funny how she remembers how people said that her son will never be able to go the university.
Her words, “When you were told your son will not be able to go to university. When you had prepared your mind to him not being a graduate and God proves you wrong!
At 14 we took him to a school in England, today at 22 he is a graduate.
