Most Educated and Uneducated Presidents Come from Africa!!
By a press release (11/05/17)
Astonishing to believe that President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe has been recorded the most educated president in the world today.
With a Bachelor's degree in History, English, Administration, Education and Law and also a Masters degree in Law and in Economics alongside several other PHDs beside the 14 honorary degrees, this record will indeed be a very hard one for any other president in the world to break. (Pictured: Presidents Koroma and Mugabi).
BUT, WHO IS THE MOST UNEDUCATED PRESIDENT IN THE WORLD?
Surprisingly, it’s not President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria who they claim at least has a secondary school certificate and is ranked the 6th most uneducated.
If your grand mother was able to acquire a primary school certificate, then she is more educated than the world's least educated president.
Jacob Zuma, the president of South Africa is the world's most uneducated president!!! Jacob Zuma has no formal education. In fact he is self-schooled. He taught himself to read and write at home.
Acquiring formal education was difficult for Zuma because he was poor, and lost his father at a very young age. With little or no access to funds, he borrowed books from friends in the neighbourhood, and would insist his friends put him through on how to pronounce words.
Many a time, Zuma would personally educate himself in the bush and was involved in the fight against the apartheid government alongside Nelson Mandela and this led him to prison, yet he continued in self education.
He regarded self education as more important than certification. Hear Jacob Zuma: "I don't regard myself as uneducated. I only lack formal qualifications and certifications."
But who today will believe he doesn't possess a primary school certificate when he stands to address his nation on political and economic issues and when he sits in the African Union and the United Nations. He speaks even better than so many professors!
There is destiny orchestrator! The qualifier of the unqualified! The one that picks the needy from the dust and the beggar from the dunghill and cause them to sit among the princes!
Now, compare the two presidents! One is the most educated and the other is the most uneducated. People of entirely opposite extremes, yet, they both arrived at the same destination. This tells you that it’s not about efforts, it’s about Grace! Yes, effort is good, but nobody can receive anything unless it is first given to him from above.
Are you bragging about what you seem to have achieved in life? Your education, your wealth, your intelligence, your success or beauty is not a product of your effort but the mercy of God!
There is nothing you have that you didn't receive. For without God, you can do nothing. Nebuchadnezzar failed to recognise this until he was turned into an animal.
"It is God that worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasures" (Philippians 2:13). "It does not therefore depend on human desire or effort, but on God's Mercy" (Romans 9:16, NIV)
