OLUSEGUN OBASANJO’S PhD, The Story of A Man Who Was Determined To Be Properly Educated.

Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, PhD.
Tenacity, Determination and Focus are the three best of words that best describes former President Olusegun Obasanjo, PhD, who today was awarded a Doctorate Degree in Christian Theology by the National Open University, not honorary as being awarded to our politicians of today, but LETTERED and I’m very proud of him.

The former President was on Friday pronounced worthy and competent for the award of Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Christian Theology after 163 minutes robust defense of his voluminous thesis before a six–man panel.

The degree was awarded to Obasanjo by the Department of Religious Studies, Faculty of Arts of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), Abeokuta Study Centre, Ogun State.

The panelists are Prof. Deji Ayegboyin (Major Supervisor), Dr. Mustapha Raheem Adejoro,(Head of Department, Religious Studies,NOUN), Prof. Nebath Tanglang (School of Postgraduate Studies, NOUN), Dr. Samaila Mande (Dean, Postgraduate School, NOUN), Prof. Godwin Akper (Internal Supervisor and Dean, Faculty of Arts, NOUN) and Prof. Cletus Gotan (External Supervisor).

Asked by Dr. Samaila Mande, who chaired the panel, to justify in a nutshell why he should be awarded a PhD degree of the institution, Obasanjo said he had put in “enough study” and “intellectual rigours” to produce his work based on diligent guide and supervision from his teachers and supervisors and so, deserves to be so awarded.

Obasanjo’s PhD Thesis is titled: “Resolving the Unfinished Agenda in Liberation Theology: Leadership, Poverty and Underdevelopment in North Eastern Nigeria.”

The ex- President whose matriculation number reads NOU 146058901, submitted the thesis to his department as part of the requirements for the award of a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Christian Theology.
