Sitting in class with my daughter’s age mates was strange, interesting – Sen. Ifeanyi Ubah

Story from Ibraheem Hamza MUHAMMAD, Lafiya

The Senator representing Anambra South, Ifeanyi Ubah, has described as strange his journey to bagging a Law degree.

The lawmaker officially bagged a degree in Law (LL.B, Second Class Hons) from the Faculty of Law at the Convocation ceremony of the prestigious Baze University, Abuja over the weekend. He said that his transition from the hallowed Senate Chamber to sitting in the same classroom with effervescent youths that happen to fall within the same age bracket as his daughter “was a very challenging and startling journey.”

Speaking with the Press he revealed, “First and foremost, I want to thank God Almighty for His guidance, without which, none of this would have been possible. Undoubtedly, it has been a long journey but our loving God in His infinite mercy and grace took me by the hand and led me thus far in my academic pursuit.

“When I decided to study Law, I was prepared to learn, explore and challenge myself to leave my comfort zone and live a new reality. Today, I am proud to say that I made the right decision as these past years as a student has seen me learn more within and beyond the confines of the classroom. Every little encounter and experience gained so far in this great citadel of learning has been enriching and will remain within my memories for life. My sojourn in Baze University ultimately reinforces the belief that we are never too old to learn; never too powerful to learn and never too full of learning.

“My learning experience has truly been a fascinating and unforgettable one and I have so many people to thank for that. At this juncture, I would like to congratulate my fellow graduands including Chief Osita Chidoka, Dr Adaora Umeoji, Senator Dino Melaye and others for successfully obtaining their degrees. Thank you all for sharing this amazing journey with me, I sincerely wish you all the very best in your future endeavours.

“I want to wholeheartedly thank my lovely wife and kids for their unwavering love, belief and support; thank you for believing in me even when I had doubts. To my friends, well-wishers and supporters, I thank you all for your encouragement.

“Conclusively, I also wish to sincerely thank the School Management and my lecturers for their consummate professionalism, as well as my wonderful classmates who are too numerous to mention; you all are great individuals that inspired me to greater lengths throughout my stay in the institution.
It could be recalled that Uba was a shopkeeper and successful businessman-turned Senator and now a graduate of law.
