He explained that he decided to enroll in the University because he never had the opportunity to do so while growing up
“I was really happy when DMU staff said I could study here. I wanted to do this course because growing up in Nigeria we didn’t really have the opportunity to actually go to school.
“It’s a personal thing for me that I want to do, to expand myself and learn new things. Instead of sitting at home after training I
come to DMU for my classes.
“The teachers have been amazing, they really try and help me understand. Rather than just reading books they take time to
explain things to me and they are also very understanding about my schedule with training,” Ndidi told the University website.
Ndidi was an instrumental to Nigeria team which emerged third at the just concluded AFCON
