Nollywood actor and model, Alexx Ekubo has caused a stir on social media with a post suggesting that, education does not necessarily makes one intelligent.
According to the the award winning actor, a person’s level of education is not directly proportional to the person’s intellect. He opined that a person can have a bachelor’s degree and still be an idiot.

The actor took to his Instagram page and wrote: “I hate when people confuse education with intelligence. You can have a bachelor’s degree & still be an idiot. Tag 2 friends 1 idiot & 1 intelligent, let them guess who is who.. ”
