“LLB IN THE BAG …TO GOD BE THE GLORY
It started like a dream , to a wish and finally a reality
Today I finally dropped my pen as a law student
It seems like an impossible journey when I started
Various obstacles on the way
Sleepless nights of reading, dangerous road movements etc
But I didn’t take my eyes off the ball
To God be the glory , the end justifies the means
To those who made this happen especially my family led by my wife ( who insisted it was time for me to get this done, and encouraged me not to give up , when atimes frustrations set in ) I say a big thank you
To my friends within and outside the country , God bless you
To my lecturers , management staff, and students of LEADCITY UNIVERSITY IBADAN , you deserve my thanks
Not a time for so much speech, at the fullness of time, the story will be told ”
The public affairs expert said, in an exclusive interview with this outlet immediately after finishing his most recent article, that his long-term goal has been to read law.
Even at the age of 55, he claims that reading law has improved his perspective on the world and some things he previously took for granted.
