Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, was on Saturday awarded a Master’s Degree in Christian Theology by the National Open University of Nigeria.
Obasanjo was among the 10,653 students who were awarded degrees in various academic fields at the institution’s 5th convocation ceremony held at its permanent campus in Abuja. About 15 of the students graduated with First Class Honours. Obasanjo had enrolled for the Master’s in Christian Theology after earning a first degree in the same discipline from the university.
Others who graduated with him include the Emir of Hadeija, Adamu Maje, and paramount ruler of Agwu, His Royal Highness Felix Asad. Obasanjo had graduated with a pass in Christian Theology with a GPA of 4.25 from the Abeokuta Centre of the institution. He is expected to continue his PhD degree at the institution, according to the Vice-Chancellor of NOUN, Prof. Joshua Tenebe. “It is interesting to know that former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, will be graduating with a Master’s Degree (MA Christian Theology) having  met the requirements for the award, during the convocation. Having been given admission to study MA/PhD in Christian Theology, Chief Obasanjo will continue with his PhD fully,” he said.
