Nigeria: 80-year-old man graduates from law school

Written by Deckson N.

An 80-year-old man, Barrister Pius Enebeli, has set a new career goal for the aged by graduating from the law school.

Enebeli revealed in an interview with Daily Trust, that he plans to take things up a notch by going into active advocacy.

He believes God has a purpose for him having lived long enough to finish his law degree and complete the compulsory one year study at the law school.

“I will go into active advocacy. In fact, when I started this thing, I wasn’t sure I would live to enjoy what I’m enjoying today.”

“So, I said even if I die reading Law, the day I would be buried, they will mention it, that ‘this man died studying Law’. But now that I’m hale and hearty, I’m going into advocacy.”

“After all, the day we were being called to bar, most young people couldn’t stand up. They were sitting for that period, but I was standing.”

“In fact, it was my wife and son who both insisted I sit down. But I insisted on standing because I wanted to show them that I can do advocacy, as God has given me fitness.”

“As I am today, I’m not suffering from High Blood Pressure (HBP), diabetes or anything. God has prepared me to go into advocacy.”

The octogenarian disclosed that he is the first to acquire a law degree in his family, and the third in his hometown of Aboh, Delta State.
