An overjoyed young man has recently taken to social media to celebrate accomplishing a huge milestone in his life.
The post sighted by YEN.com.gh on the LinkedIn timeline of Nnanna Ukoji had him sharing that at just 26 years, he has successfully completed his PhD journey which was focused on investigating the behaviour of materials under extreme conditions such as high temperature and pressure, to help enrich knowledge of chemical and structural properties.
According to him, the 46 months journey to earning the Dr title was not a smooth one as it came with many ups and downs including losing his father.
Honestly, there have been both high and low times throughout this journey. A few years into my PhD program, I lost my father (Late Chief Dan Ukpai Mba Ukoji) who was my greatest cheerleader. I literally felt my world crashing down on me when I was notified of his demise.
