A 77-year-old grandma, Bridget Okonji is one of the graduands of the University of Lagos (UNILAG), whose 50th convocation ceremony held recently.
Admitted to the university’s sandwich programme through the Institute of Continued Education, Bridget graduated with a first class degree from the Department of Educational Foundations, popularly called Guidance and Counselling Education.
“I studied Guidance and Counselling and I am most grateful to God Almighty who made me see this day. I will not like my name to be mentioned because I know where I am coming from and what I am protecting. 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 told Premium Times.
According to her, 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. Education has no limit. It is from cradle to death in order for one to add value to the society.”
