Customary Ruler Who Bagged Degree At 73 Set For Law School by itsolanrewaju: 9:37pm On Nov 12, 2017
A traditional ruler in Ogun State, Nigeria, Olufemi Ogunleye, who recently obtained a degree in Law at the age of 73, has been admitted into the Law school.

Mr. Ogunleye, the Toluwade of Akinale in Owu Kingdom of Egbaland, graduated with a Second Class Upper degree from Crescent University, Abeokuta, an institution founded by Bola Ajibola, a former Nigerian Attorney-General and ex-judge at the International Court of the Justice.

The traditional ruler was a journalist before mounting the throne, having served with the Daily Times for over a decade and as Group Public Relations Manager of the defunct Nigeria Airways.

Speaking on his law academic pursuit, he said in his palace on Sunday that after obtaining his degree he was set to commence his nine months programme at the Law School in Lagos.

‎The monarch said he is to resume class alongside his school mates on Monday.
He added further that he will live in the hostel with his course mates.
“I am to stay in the hostel, and have equally secured hostel accommodation,” he said.

He has own reason for pursuing it . Let him have his fulfillment. He can even motivate and challenge someone to pursue education at his age.

I congratulate the King on his success and may he live long. I believe his knowledge of the law will benefit his kingdom. I was a victim of land palaver, the baale was just a figure head. The kingsmen used stupid reasoning to deprive me of the said land. They used issues like the opponents father contributed to community, he's family was of a ruling house. I believe if the said ruler knew the rule of law, things would have been better. This is my opinion

A real nice and great model to look and follow but keeps me awake at night when I remember that all this knowledge would end up useless the moment health issues steps in as well as death.
It doesn't seem to make us outsmart judgement with God niether does it help us strategize how to populate the kingdom of heaven.
Do what's needed not to miss the eternal goal rather than populate earthly shelf.
