Nigerians comment on his personality
"The biggest congratulations to the Lecturers who successfully held him back for 13 years.

"Nigeria is a poorly told joke."
Arome Alvin Adejo stated:
Congrats most senior comrade...we appreciate your at least 15 years of service to Unijos...we wish you a happy farewell❤️Leader!!!
Jeffery David opined:
"Hip hip hip i want to say i want to yan i want to. Said congratulations to the most senior aluta man in uj ounce.
"Again congratulations to jango."
"Assuming he schooled in a sane clime, he would have graduated since and by now he would have been an accomplished man with high paying job.
"Schooling in Nigeria is a disease, a big one.
"This is why my unborn kids will never school in Nigeria, whether it's private or FG schools, never!
"All this money I'm hustling and gathering is for their future, I will make sure I give them the privileges my parents gave me."
"Comrade Jango stayed that long moving from department to department due largely to his unserious nature and deep involvement in campus and NANS politics. This period is good enough for a serious person to undertake Diploma, B.Sc, NYSC, MBA, M.Sc and Ph.D.
"I will not be surprised, if he emerged someday as a member of the House of the green chamber."
