Conductor-Adeoye Fawaz wins best chess and mental maths award
The adage that says “a book should not be judged by its cover”, has played out in the life of a bus conductor Adeoye Fawaz in Lagos.
Fawaz, an 18 year old boy who works as a bus conductor and has spent years of his life under Oshodi bridge emerged as overall champion in both chess and mental maths at a tournament held in Oshodi, Lagos.
The tournament is the brainchild of Chess In Slums Initiative, an organisation dedicated to engaging children and other young people living in slums.
