What happens when the President of the USA, Donald Trump references a poem you’ve written a decade ago as an Irish proverb? This is what Nigerian banker Albasheer Adam Alhassan, a Nigerian banker found out today, according to a report by CNN.
“My sister just brought the news to me. I didn’t want to believe what she said initially. I posted those things when I was back in school, over 10 years ago. I never thought it would get to this level,” said Alhassan, a who wrote the poem in college.
A business manager at First Bank of Nigeria, who lives in Katsina, added, “Maybe I shouldn’t have been a banker, maybe I should have been a poet all my life!”
