A popular Nigerian US-based Fuji musician, Saheed Osupa, has disclosed how he almost abandoned his political science programme at the University of Ibadan (UI), Oyo State.
Osupa, who was part of the last graduates of the institution, disclosed this in a Facebook post while commenting on his decision to pursue a degree in political science.
“I went to school to pursue my degrees because I wanted to upgrade my intellectual capacity and don’t want to be segregated.
“Initially, I was not having any problems from my 100-level. But when I got to 300-level, I almost quit because it was now more about writing. But I adjusted and adapted.
“However, it was not easy at all and I had to employ two lecturers for a course before my graduation and put in more effort.”
“My plan is to achieve my masters and a PhD in five years in America where I reside now to validate my PhD title.”
He, therefore, advised that, “People should not be mentally lazy or believe that once they can feed, clothe and provide shelter for themselves and families; that is the peak of achievement or success.”
