WAEC 2022 Massive Recruitment for Graduates

Tonye Patrick Cole narrates:

*I met the renowned Nobel Laureate and African literary giant, Prof. Wole Soyinka (the grey-haired man in the picture) in the departure lounge recently and excitedly moved to greet him*

*He said soon after, they headed into the flight and the Prof occupied a window seat in the business class cabin. But before long a young man (in the picture) walked in and asked the Prof to move to his original seat (the aisle seat). So he (the youngman) can have the seat allocated to him (the window side) where the Prof had occupied*

*Tonye added that, amidst the situation, he and a member of the cabin crew tried to convince the young man to allow the Prof keep the window seat. But the young man wouldn’t agree*
