Nigerian man jubilates as he graduates after spending 10 years in the university

A Nigerian man identified as Akorede J. Ayanbisi, has bagged a bachelor’s degree in finance after spending 10 years in the university.

He took to Twitter to celebrate and shared a touching story of how he finished from secondary school in 2011, but could not gain admission until six years later.

The fresh graduate of the University of Lagos said he enrolled into the National Open University NOUN, Abuja in 2014 after several failed attempts to study Accounting.

Akorede said that in 2017, he was motivated by some course mates and decided to sit for JAMB exams again, and he gained admission to study Finance at UNILAG.

In May 2023, he narrated; “I’ve always wanted to pursue my university education at the University of Lagos (UNILAG).

In 2011, I completed high school and attempted the JAMB exams in 2011, 2012 and 2013, hoping to be admitted to study Accounting at UNILAG. Unfortunately, I wasn’t granted admission during those years.

In 2014, due to my frustrations with the admission process, I decided to enroll at the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) to study Accounting.

In 2017, during my final year and first semester at NOUN, I was inspired by my twin friends who were also my course-mates. One of them gained admission to UNILAG in 2015, and the other in 2016.

Motivated by their success, I took the JAMB again in 2017, determined not to give up on my dream of studying at UNILAG. Thankfully, I was offered admission to study Finance at UNILAG.

Currently, I am in my final year and will be completing my program this June 2023, by the special grace of God. The day I received my admission letter was one of the best days of my life because I accomplished it on my own, with the help of God.
