HONOUR FROM ACROSS THE SEAS
“Never thought I would ever have the appellation ‘Dr’ to my name, except if I went to herbal school, as an imminent retiree. But what did I see? A notification from Learn To Live Business School, United Kingdom.
The honorary award, they said, was in recognition of my work as Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, and it is described as Doctor of Strategic Management and Leadership Development.
The investiture was done by Dr Peter Akubo and Dr Nelson Kingsley, on behalf of the institution.
An award of pure joy, if you ask me.”
