THE general overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor
Enoch Adejare Adeboye, has said that jollof rice and chicken being
enjoyed by the students of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, UNN, way
back in 1962, made him to choose the UNN as a university where he would
do his first degree. Adeboye who was awarded with an honorarily
doctorate degree of Doctor of Divinity, DD by the University on Tuesday,
said that he developed interest in the University when he went with his
fellow students on an excursion to UNN in 1962 and saw students eating
jollof rice with half a chicken.

The cleric said that when he saw
the way the students were enjoying then, he decided that he God
permitted, he would come to UNN to study and lucky enough, the following
year, 1963, he gained admission into the prestigious University.
Carried by what he saw, Adeboye said that, “I took a pebble from the
ground asked God to make me come to the University. The following year,
1963, God answered my prayers.” Adeboye however regretted that he could
not graduate from the University as he left in 1966 without a degree. He
expressed joy, however, that sixty years later, he has now been awarded
a doctorate degree from the same University and professors call him,
‘daddy.’ “I left UNN in 1966 without a degree. Sixty years later, I have
gotten a degree from UNN, now not as a first degree but a doctorate
degree. That is why I feel elated. I am overwhelmed,” he said. Speaking
at the occasion, Pro-chancellor of the University, Mr. Emmanuel Ukala,
said that Adeboye deserved the honourary degree because he was a man of
achievement. “It is necessary to point out, distinguished ladies and
gentlemen, that the University of Nigeria places high premium on
positive, and the road to the attainment of its honourary degree is
quite tight indeed. “As a result, anyone that successfully moves through
the tight rope deserves our honour and veneration. I, therefore
congratulate Pastor E. A Adeboye for his selection for the award of the
honourary degree of the University. Welcome on board as a significant
member of the den of lions and lionesses,” Ukala represented by the vice
chancellor, Prof. Benjamin Ozumba said.
