77-year-old Woman Graduates From UNILAG

Bridget Okonji, a 77-year-old retiree, was among the 1,008 students of the Faculty of Education, University of Lagos, who were awarded a first degree on Tuesday at the 2017/2018 Convocation Ceremonies of the institution.

The convocation was the university’s 50th.

She revealed that she came to the school to receive knowledge and to avoid boredom at home.

“I am a retired officer. I have worked in a lot of countries around the world and also in Nigeria, where I finally retired,” she noted.

“I studied guidance and counselling and I am most grateful to God Almighty who made me see this day.”

She added that she went for the degree programme because she did not want to sit at home after retirement.

“You know when you retire like that, you will not want to stay at home and be dying slowly, she said.

According to the retiree, no one should feel too old to go to school as learning remains a life-long adventure.

“Education has no limit. It is from cradle to death in order for one to add value to the society,’’ she said.
