Ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo got his doctorate degree in Cristian theology after a 163 minutes drill with a 6 man panel. Obasanjo’s PhD Thesis is titled: “Resolving the Unfinished Agenda in Liberation Theology: Leadership, Poverty and Underdevelopment in North Eastern Nigeria.”
Obasanjo, when asked by Dr. Samaila Mande, who chaired the panel, to justify why he should earn the degree stated he had put in “enough study” and “intellectual rigours” to produce his work based on diligent guide and supervision from his teachers and supervisors.
Obasanjo had previously enrolled in Saint David Ebenezer School at Ibogun, for his primary school education. From 1952 to 1957, he attended Baptist Boys High School (BBHS), Abeokuta, for his secondary school education.
Dr. Mande a Dean of the school said “Obasanjo has satisfied the requirements and thus qualified for the award of Doctor of Philosophy degree in Christian Theology of NOUN. Mande said it was a thing joy to him as the ex-President happened to be one of the pioneer students to bag PhD in Christian Theology under his management, expressing the confidence that the feat would be well celebrated during the NOUN convocations.
