Speaking on the course of study, Dr. Ibrahim, who is the People’s Democratic Party, PDP Ondo Central Senatorial District candidate, disclosed that the course was an uncommon one even as he described himself as uncommon person having had nine degrees in his kitty before the completion of the recent one.

“This is the first time it is happening in the University of Cambridge after 800 years. So, it cannot be compared.
