The story of Michael Adeshina Odeleye, a Nigerian, based in the United Kingdom, best typifies the aphorism that academic exploit is no respecter of age.
Few years ago, and at a time when some of his contemporaries would have given the idea a scanty regard, he decided to go back to school to hone his skills.
At the 2017 convocation ceremony at the Anglia Ruskin University, Chelmsford, Essex, United Kingdom, Odeleye flew the Nigerian map with pride when he bagged the highly coveted First Class degree in Business Management and Leadership.
According to the certificate signed by the Vice Chancellor of the school, Professor Lain Martin, Michael Adeshina Odeleye has been awarded the degree of Bachelor of Science with First Class Honours, having successfully completed an approved programme in Business Management & Leadership from the prestigious Anglia Ruskin University, United Kingdom.
Odeleye has no doubt justified the popular sayings that men are like the stars; some generate their own light while others reflect the brilliance they receive.
Odeleye's course mates and friends attested to his outstanding performance, and attributed it to his strong determination, studious disposition and go-getting stance.
It has been joy and celebrations all the way for the newest honorary graduand as family, friends and well wishers have been pouring congratulatory messages on the exceptionally brilliant man.
