Nigerian man whose mother sold her properties to sponsor his education becomes successful, bags PhD degree in Accounting

A brilliant Nigerian man named Kolawole Babatayo, who lost his mother while she was struggling to sponsor his education has achieved extraordinary success after earning a Doctorate degree in Accounting.

Kolawole Babatayo who celebrated his success on LinkedIn dedicated his success to his mother who he said sold her clothes to get money for his education. “I remembered how you were forced to trade off your clothes when you were unable to pay back the loan you took to pay my WAEC fee in the year 1997,” Babatayo narrated about his mother.

According to Babatayo, he had promised his mother that he would strive to get to the peak of his educational journey. He enrolled for a Diploma degree before gaining admission into the University of Lagos, South-West, Nigeria where he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting.
