farmer goes to school

One 65 year old Joseph Ugbene, a native of Egede, in the Udi council area of Enugu State, who recently made headlines for returning to school to acquire secondary education has now revealed why he did.

According to him, he went back to school because his children laughed at him when he spoke English and mixed up his tenses.

Read excerpts from his chat with PUNCH Newspaper:

He said, “I was in class one in secondary school when the civil war broke out and after the war, things changed. I had no means of going back to school because my father died.

“So, that was why I said I needed adult education to complete my secondary education and continue. I am now a father of seven children and I trained all of them. They are all educated.

“You see, before I started this adult education programme, when I spoke English my children would laugh because of my tenses. That also motivated me to go back to school.

“So, I must climb that level and I am determined to acquire that education. It is helping me a lot now because I can buy drugs and administer to birds, courtesy of what I learnt in school.”

Nollywood actress Jaiye Kuti who is repeatedly rumoured to be married to Fuji singer Pasuma has shared throwback photos of her and her husband as they celebrate their 21st wedding anniversary.

Jaiye Kuti rarely shares photos of her husband or brings their love life to social media. However, her reasons may not be far from several marital woes and unhealthy competition in the Nollywood industry.

Little wonder there were speculations that she is romantically linked to Pasuma, a piece of news she trashed and debunked stating they only featured in a movie together as husband and wife.

Taking to her Instagram page to share photos of the family and other throwback photos, Jaiye Kuti said she had thought marriage was a bed of roses but was wrong.
