Mr. Aderemi Alli, a grandfather, was the oldest among the 21 First Class degree graduands of the University of Ibadan (UI) when it held its convocation Thursday, in the ancient south west city of Ibadan. The university graduated a total of 1,582 students for the 2011/2012 academic session with 243 graduating in Second Class (Upper Division) and 920, Second Class (Lower Division). A total of 135 of the students graduated with Third Class and 203 earned a Pass.

Alli, 57, was among the three first class graduates produced by the institution’s Faculty of Law.

Alli, who had a first degree in economics education 31 years ago and whose last child is studying electrical engineering in UI, told journalists at the ceremony that many of his schoolmates who had become Senior Advocates of Nigeria were his motivation to go back to school to study law.

“I feel I can still participate in the society in spite of my age. I am using this medium to advise others that they can do it, If I can do it,” he said.
