Student set to graduate from university same day as his 51-year-old mom
Denu Bon said that his mother's first academic sojourn at Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ogun State began in 1992 when she secured admission for pre-degree studies after five years of not getting admitted.
According to him, his mother, Elizabeth Ogunbona, got her Bachelor's degree in 1998 but was hell-bent on furthering her education to the zenith.
However, childbearing and family demands stood in her way, making her wait for many years before continuing the quest for further studies.
Denu said in 2018, his mum successfully aced her doctoral thesis while combining being a school owner, managing a start-up and school work.
