Nkwato was the son of very rich parents. He lived in luxury. He was driven to school in a Prado. He went to a leading primary school in his locality; and later to one of the best secondary schools in his country.
He had much pocket allowance – 100.000 cfa francs every term, the equivalent of two hundred dollars.
Asanji was poor. His parents couldn’t make both ends meet. They sent him to a mission school where school fees were insignificant even though they still found it hard to afford it. Often, the boy was sent home for school fees.
The two boys were in the same class though in dofferent schools. Surprisingly, Asanji graduated with the best results in his region. He had ten GCE O/L papers with ten As and one B.
Nkwato had a bare pass – 5 O/L papers with no A grade.
