    Firstly would love to commend you for this huge opportunity to help many graduates to grow their potential fully.what is my concern is this program is restricted to "A" plus graduates. I and many others would love to have a shot at this but not with that restriction.ABSA is huge and prestigious, personally I would love to work in this prestigious organization. I want to build my career and of course help Africa grow like others. Though many are not A plus graduates,they are innovative,proactive and focused people out there. There are graduates with full potential but unfortunately,they are not A plus graduates. Wish you would make this big opportunity available to everyone..thank you for your time
