“Education should be the most important thing in Nigeria,” says Successful Developer

Emmanuel Opara, a talented Nigerian man who developed a Mobile application game on iOS device, has said that education should be the most important thing in this country.

Emmanuel, a talented Nigerian-Amerian Mobile App Developer noted in an interview that education should be more important than anything else in any country. 

My parents were both teachers; they taught mathematics and sciences. 

“They both made education a priority for me that when I came fifth in a class of 37 pupils (students), I was flogged and starved that evening.

“Education should be more important than anything else in any country.” Emmanuel said 

Talking about his journey as a developer, Emmanuel revealed that his interest in computers began when he was 9 years old.

“I used to dismantle things like radios, cable boxes, phones and put them back to together. “I remember disassembling my father’s working radio and putting it back together. I was flogged for that. 

“I grew up with just my sister. It was just the two of us. My family didn’t have much, but my mother made sure we went to school. 

We were okay as a family but not as okay as the average family of today. “I was 10 years old when my father passed away. Things got tough, but God saw us through till this day.” He stated.
