Apart from "jams from the past", here is another definition of Old School: An 80 year old man, Pa Alimi Olarenwaju Amodu received his Bachelors degree with a Second Class Honours in Sociology from the Lagos State University yesterday.
The retired civil servant gained admission in 2007 and was among the over 27,087 students who graduated from the institution's 17th convocation ceremony. During his school days, he was popularly called “Youngest Student” and “Baba Bookwarm” by other students.
“It was by God’s grace that I graduated from LASU without having to re-sit for any carry-over course. Although during my undergraduate days, I faced a lot of challenging moments like having to wake up very early to catch a bus to school. What really helped me to succeed throughout was that I had from the foundation learned from my mother to wake up as early as 3.00 a.m. I usually read from 3.00 a.m. to 6.00 a.m to constantly update my scope of knowledge, and I thank God who saw me through to this point.”
Oga you try no be small.
