John Connors, The American Who Sponsored Akinwumi Adesina In School

The President of the African Development Bank, Akinwumi Adesina, who previously served as Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development has revealed his meeting with the American man who sponsored him in school.

Making this open on Twitter, he wrote:

A $100 investment: I remember…I had only 25 cents left in America. Could not pay 50 cents for bus to school. Same day Prof John Connors gave me a $100 check. Was like a million dollars. He sent me to Prof Phil Abbott who gave me a scholarship, same day! Forever grateful. 🙏🏼💕

One can never tell how far the seed sowed will go…
