Chief Obasanjo stated this when he visited Prof Deji Ayegboyin, one of the co-supervisors for his Ph.D. programme in the Department of Religious Studies, Faculty of Arts, University of Ibadan recently. The visit was a prelude to other consultative academic visits expected in a supervisor/student-researcher relationship.

The former president maintained that nobody can know everything about God. He disclosed that for an effective learning to take place, he had disciplined himself under the tutelage of his supervisors saying that “I had got assignments which I must work on.” He described the supervisors as being of immense benefits to his academic pursuit.

Recall that Obasanjo enrolled for Ph.D in Theology at the National Open University of Nigeria, NOUN in October this year with Dr. Tachin of NOUN as his direct supervisor, while Prof. Ayegboyin was headhunted as Chief Obasanjo’s thesis focuses on Liberation Theology, which is one of the research interests of the Ayegboyin.

Speaking about his student, Obasanjo, Prof. Ayegboyin described him as a brilliant student.

His words: “He was in my office, this morning, where I took him for two hours. My impression is that he is extraordinarily brilliant. He asked probing, intimidating questions. He is extremely interested in that area.”
