After obtaining a post-graduate diploma in Christian Theology from the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), former President Olusegun Obasanjo (Baba Iyabo) is going back to study for a higher degree in Christian Theology
Obasanjo is expected to enrol Tuesday as a graduate student at NOUN headquarters in Lagos, according to reports from Premium Times.
The former leader who obtained a Post-Graduate Diploma in 2009, confirmed to the online news portal that he would be back to school for a doctorate degree, starting with a Master’s degree.
Explaining why it was important for him, Obasanjo stated:
“I’m going back to school because I have to have something to aspire to in every endeavour of life. I always aspire to something new in my farm. I do that in my international activities. I do it in my writing. I do it in the improvement of my academic work which helps to sharpen my brain and strengthen my faith.”
During his graduation ceremony in 2009, the Vice Chancellor of NOUN, Professor Olagbemiro Jegede, described Obasanjo as a hardworking student and praised his academic achievements and attitude towards studies.
