These 4 Prominent Ghanaians Have No University Degrees But Now Swimming In Cash



Education has been one of the most cherished assets globally. Ask the average man what he so much hopes to achieve, aside from money which is obvious, education will definitely follow closely.

For some, education brings power, class, and respect – therefore attaining a university degree is top on their wish lists.
