THE general overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, has said that jollof rice and chicken being delighted in by the understudies of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, UNN, route in 1962, made him to pick the UNN as a college where he would do his first degree. Adeboye who was granted with a honorarily doctorate level of Doctor of Divinity, DD by the University on Tuesday, said that he created enthusiasm for the University when he ran with his kindred understudies on a journey to UNN in 1962 and saw understudies eating jollof rice with a large portion of a chicken.
The priest said that when he saw the way the understudies were getting a charge out of then, he concluded that he God allowed, he would come to UNN to contemplate and sufficiently fortunate, the next year, 1963, he picked up induction into the prestigious University. Conveyed by what he saw, Adeboye said that, “I took a rock from the beginning God to make me go to the University. The next year, 1963, God addressed my supplications.” Adeboye however lamented that he couldn’t move on from the University as he cleared out in 1966 without a degree. He communicated bliss, in any case, that sixty years after the fact, he has now been granted a doctorate degree from a similar University and educators call him, “daddy.” “I cleared out UNN in 1966 without a degree. After sixty years, I have gotten a degree from UNN, now not as a first degree but rather a doctorate degree. That is the reason I feel elated. I am overpowered,” he said. Talking at the event, Pro-chancellor of the University, Mr. Emmanuel Ukala, said that Adeboye merited the honourary degree since he was a man of accomplishment. “It is important to call attention to, recognized women and respectable men, that the University of Nigeria places high premium on positive, and the street to the accomplishment of its honourary degree is very tight in fact. “Subsequently, anybody that effectively travels through the tight rope merits our respect and reverence. I, consequently salute Pastor E. A Adeboye for his choice for the honor of the honourary level of the University. Welcome on board as a huge individual from the nook of lions and lionesses,” Ukala spoke to by the bad habit chancellor, Prof. Benjamin Ozumba said.
