Obasanjo Set To Receive PhD Degree On Saturday

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo will on Saturday, January 20 join 14,771 individuals to receive honours at the 7th Convocation Ceremony of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) in Abuja.

NOUN’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Abdalla Adamu, made this known in a press conference on Tuesday.

Obasanjo will receive a doctorate in Christian Theology at the institution’s headquarters in Jabi, Abuja.

Adamu said, “One of the graduands is the first PhD graduate the institution will produce; a university must graduate students at academic Masters Level before graduating PhD.

“Only one candidate has been able to do that and that is Obasanjo; the Senate has found him worthy of the award and approved the conferment of PhD on him.

“There are lessons to be learnt from Obasanjo’s feat – one is never too old to learn; Obasanjo was about 80 years when he started the programme and has finished it at 82.

“Again, one is never too powerful to learn; he was the president twice and yet subjected himself to learning; learning is a humbling process.

“We will consider him for the post of a facilitator or supervisor; maybe for our Abeokuta Study Centre; we will suggest it to him.’’
