Ogun monarch bags doctorate degree at LASU

The Olu of Imasayi-Yewa, in Ogun state, HRM Oba Lukman Adeleke Kuoye has been awarded doctorate degree on social works at the Lagos State University (LASU).

Oba Kuoye was among the 11,195 graduants at the 27th convocation ceremony of the institution, held at the Buba Marwa auditorium, inside the school campus at Ojo, Lagos.

The elated monarch while speaking with newsmen, stated that his motivation was to lay a good foundation for the traditional institution, saying that being a monarch should not be a barrier to the pursuit of academic achievements.

“When I ascended the throne, I never knew I would continue, I was on the struggle of my PHd before it happened but because of focus and determination, finally, I have accomplished it.

“I want to lay a very good example that being an oba does not deprive you from achieving your goals, the passion i have for education can not be undermined.

“It won’t be a surprise if some of the Obas will be going back to school, because it is one of the cardinal reasons why I continue that I achieved this so that they will know being an oba does not deprive you from achieving your goals.

“If you see an oba that is us well educated, the way he will be governing his kingdom will be different from those that are not educated and is not just about going to school, attaining the certificate but getting to the root.

“My research was on people living with mental disorder, I want to tell you in the next 3 or 4 years, if care is not taken we may be picking people with mentally disorder on the street because of drug abuse. I have gone to the field, i have seen that and depression and what we don’t know is that not every body that have mental disorder is being cursed or under a spell, depression caused it in many ways”, he said
