A Sixty-year-old man, Farouk Sanni on Thursday emerged as the best graduating student in the Department of Sociology of the University of Ibadan, Oyo State Nigeria.

Mr Farouk Sanni, while narrating his experience at the 75th convocation ceremony at the university, said he took up the challenge to stay healthy and pursue his quest to understand human behaviour after retiring from UBA and had to write JAMB to be admitted to study Sociology.

According to Sanni, who bagged eight awards as a result of the feat, he wrote JAMB with his child, who is now studying Law at the University of Ibadan.

“Studying in a class where you have those of the same age with your children can be very challenging, but I was magnanimous to accommodate what happened.

“Some called me Daddy, others called me Mr Sanni while some will even say ‘he may be a daddy but he is not my father’. I experienced a lot of things, but as an old person, I was able to remain focused,” he said.

Speaking on the feat of Mr Sanni, Dr Oludayo Tade, a lecturer in the department said the best graduating student had a chair which he tied to a tree where he read under a tree in the Faculty of Social Sciences.

“This 60-year-old man, Mallam F. K. Sanni, graduated with First Class in Sociology of the University of Ibadan as the best student in his set, and with that, he won 8 awards. At present, he has two undergraduate children in UI”, he said.
