Friday Solomon: You can also have a Master’s degree and still be foolish, all those degrees are just piece of paper, common sense lay in our behaviour and the perspective of how we see things, interact with people and handle cases.
Meanwhile, Alex CALM DOWN and give that person you are talking to ONE MORE CHANCE.
Kedei Favour Awukam: You actually don’t gain wisdom from education you gain knowledge from education it’s only through God you gain wisdom kos God is wisdom and wisdom is God………… so you are ryt!!!!
Joseph Timothy: cert is not a guarratee of success. it is better to have a good skill or business before going to school!
all the find X in mathematics where are they today.
I love doing my business… as far it puts food on my table.
having the Cert to me was just to fulfil alll righteousness
Amusan Kayode Victor: He wasn’t right in his choice of words. He meant to say that there is a difference between “literacy and education”. Getting a degree does not mean that one is educated. Going to school could only afford to make you a literate. It is when the knowledge you acquire in the course of schooling amounts to a positive change in you that you are educated.
Buenyen Jonathan: One doesn’t need to go to school talk more of earning a degree to have common sense . Common sense is out of school though school enables one to shape his common reasoning . Common sense is self learnt
Franco Di Santo: There is that innate intelligence that doesn’t have anything to do with education or certificate, if you don’t have it no matter the degree you have, you will forever be a clown unless you beg God for wisdom, else you will forever be an idiot to the extent that it will become hereditary even your kids will inherit it….not everyone with a degree has sense not all of them are intelligent, some of them are just overrated
Ayike Oge Pe: Dem plenty…
Shouting the youth don’t want to work, when na dem supposed leave office for better brains. There grammar seff, dey fear Mr Soyinka
Benjamin Benevolent Benalisa: Very possible …
There is different between been educated and having wisdom…or should a say, having knowledge or wisdom…
