Charles Soludo, the governor-elect of Anambra state, took to Instagram to reflect on his humble beginning.
The former CBN Governor said that as a young man, all he had was a dream of impacting the world.
He added: “Education came to my rescue and aided my release from what would have been a generational trap in the dynasty of poverty.”
He said there are others who escaped the trap of poverty through trade and craft but in his case “education was the saving grace”.
He added that education, when properly harnessed, is capable of bringing many out of poverty.
