Grandfather Graduates With First Class From University Of Ibadan
A grandfather, Mr Aderemi Alli, was among the 21 first class graduates produced by the University of Ibadan (UI) at its convocation yesterday 15th November 2012, in Ibadan.
Mr Alli, 57, was among the three first class graduates produced by the institution’s Faculty of Law.
He had had a first degree in economics education 31 years ago. Mr Alli, whose last child is studying electrical engineering in UI, said he was motivated to study law because many of his schoolmates had become Senior Advocates of Nigeria.
“I feel I can still participate in the society in spite of my age. I am using this medium to advise others that they can do it, If I can do it,” he said.
A first class in law, is no easy feat, but Mr Alli did it at 57. No matter how difficult your dreams and aspirations are at any point, never give up on them.
