Nigeria's foremost Journalist and online publisher  Chris Kehinde Nwandu has graduated with a second class upper division in Law

Nwandu recalled how he was arrested in  2015 over a publication he made as the Editor in Chief of CKN News and was reminded at Ikoyi Prison for 13 days until he perfected his bail conditions 

The case was eventually struck out, according to him , that singular act was another motivational factor why he opted for law studies at the age of 55

On his future plans , Mr Nwandu confirmed that he awaits to be mobilized for the mandatory Law School programme anytime soon 

Hear him , I am happy to fulfil my childhood dream .

it was not an easy task combining my job with full time studies especially law but I was determined to make a success of it 

Most of my classmates were my daughter's age mate , she graduated last year from Bowen University with a first class in Computer Science 

I did not allow the age difference to be a barrier rather it became a motivational factor for me

I want to use this opportunity to appreciate my family for all  the support and to my lecturers at the Faculty of Law Leadcity University for making it possible for me to realize my lifetime ambition
