From CNN:

Abetifi, Ghana — A former teacher has just graduated from university in Ghana — aged 99.

World War Two veteran Akasease Kofi Boakye Yiadom enrolled at Presbyterian University College’s business school aged 96.

“Education has no end,” he told CNN. “As far as your brain can work alright, your eyes can see alright, and your ears can hear alright, if you go to school you can learn.”

Now he has finished his studies, Boakye Yiadom is urging his classmates to resist the lure of higher salaries overseas and stay in Ghana.

Most say they have no plans to leave. Bright Korang, a fourth-year student at Presbyterian University College, told CNN, “Throughout my education, taxpayers’ money has been used to support me.

“Therefore after school I should also help the taxpayer. I can see there are so many opportunities here in Ghana.”

But some of his classmates are looking outside the country. Joshua Odame will study for his master’s degree in the UK. “The developed countries have the technical know how, so we go and learn and bring it back to the country,” he told CNN.
