10-year-old Nigerian Girl Accepted To Study Maths In University

Forgive me guys for being away for so long. I have been seriously hit with my worst virus flu and cough and it is so bad that my lungs were affected. I feel much better now but slight pains in my lung pipe. The weather is so terrible and cold that almost everyone is sick.
 A 10-year-old Nigerian, Esther Okade, has been accepted into university to study maths degree despite not going to school. Esther Okade enrolled on an Open University course months after she passed her A-levels and wants to study for a PhD before running her own bank.

 Esther and her brother are both home-schooled by their mother Omonefe Okade, who has converted the living room of their semi-detached, three-bedroom house into a makeshift classroom.
Mathematician Mrs Okade, 37, said: ‘Esther is doing so well. She took a test recently and scored 100 per cent. Applying to the university was an interesting process because of her age. ‘We even had to talk to the vice-chancellor. After they interviewed her they realised that this has been her idea from the beginning. From the age of seven Esther has wanted to go to university. ‘But I was afraid it was too soon. She would say, “Mum, when am I starting?”, and go on and on and on. Finally, after three years she told me, “Mum, I think it is about time I started university now”.’ 

Her father Paul, 42, a managing director, added: ‘I cannot tell you how happy and proud I am as a father. The desire of every parent is to see their children exceed them, and take the family name to great heights, and my children have done just that.’
