A brilliant 13-year-old Nigerian girl named Saratu Dan-Azumi after solving some math questions, won a scholarship from her primary education up to her university education.
Saratu who hails from Kano State, Northern Nigeria, was challenged due to the inability of her parent to enrol her on school for proper education.
However, after a video of her solving math questions went viral, a generous Nigerian man named Bashir Ahmad took it upon himself to sponsor her education.
Bashir Ahmad through his Foundation said he will sponsor her up to her university education. “The Bashir Ahmad Foundation has successfully concluded the enrollment of Saratu Dan-Azumi, a brilliant out-of-school girl, who effortlessly solves math arithmetics without being taught, in a school in Gaya LGA.”
