#News: Former President Obasanjo Goes Back To School At 77


Former President Olusegun Obasanjo is not letting age deter him from achieving his dreams, the 77 year old going back to school y’all!

Nigeria’s former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, is set to go back to school for a Master’s degree.
Today (Sept. 30) OBJ will formally enroll as a graduate student of the National Open University of Nigeria in Lagos, where he will be studying towards getting a Masters degree in Christian Theology.

He is working towards getting a PHD, having received his Post Graduate Diploma in 2009.
Speaking on going back to school at 77, OBJ told Premium Times,

'I’m going back to school because I have to have something to aspire to in every endeavour of life, I always aspired 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'.

Speaking on how he would juggle studying with being a statesman with a lot of international engagements, Mr. Obasanjo said,

 'Fortunately, the Open University is flexible enough and I will definitely be able to cope. I was able to cope when I did the Post Graduate. I was also busy during the period'.

I think it’s commendable that OBJ is getting a degree at his age! Life doesn’t stop at 70!
