Nigeria’s former President, Olusegun
Obasanjo, is set to go back to school. He will be attempting to get a
higher degree in Christian Theology.

On Tuesday, Obasanjo will formally enrol as a graduate student at the headquarters of the National Open University of Nigeria in Lagos. 
In 2009, two years after he left office,
Obasanjo obtained a Post Graduate Diploma in 2009. He will now be
working towards a doctorate degree, beginning first with a Masters
degree.
Premium Times reached out to the former president who confirmed the news.

He said it was important for him to make some commitments towards achieving his aspirations in life.
“I’m going back to school because I have
to have something to aspire to in every endeavour of life, I always aspire to something new in my
farm. I do that in my international activities. I do it in my writing. I
do it in the improvement of my academic work which helps to sharpen my
brain and strengthen my faith.”

When asked how he was going to cope
combining his studies with his tight international engagements, Mr.
Obasanjo said he would take advantage of the flexibility of the National
Open University’s system.
“Fortunately, the Open University is
flexible enough and I will definitely be able to cope. I was able to
cope when I did the Post Graduate. I was also busy during the period,”
he said.
