Alabi Samuel Anjolaoluwa – Students Of Ibadan

The Studentsofibadan was birthed from the Fame Illuminate Project.

It is the pain, story, struggle and pain of student in Ibadan. The Students are majorly those in Government schools and also, those from low income families. I wanted know what it was like to be a student in Ibadan, share their stories, no because of ‘attention’ basically, but for people to be aware of what an average Ibadan or Nigerian student in a Government school go through to get educated.
