Miss Chineme Ojukwu, daughter of late Biafran leader, Chief Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, graduated from the University of Brighton in England recently.
She earned a second class upper degree in Business Administration and her family members were present at her graduation ceremony to support and rejoice with her. Her mother, Bianca, revealed how her late husband (Ojukwu) would have been so proud of the moment.
Bianca, who shared pictures from the graduation ceremony, also wrote:
“My dear friends, thank God with me. Abuzi kwam ‘nne a graduate’(I am now the mother of a graduate). My beloved daughter Chi has just graduated from the University of Brighton with a 2:1 in Business Administration. I thank Almighty God for blessing me with a daughter who has literally been like a mother to me. I call her Nne m o (my mother o).
“This would have been a very proud moment also for her daddy. He used to call her ’Daddy’s secretary’ or ‘secretary gburugburu’ because as a child she loved to spend her afternoons after school with him in his office, playing with papers on the floor.
“How time flies! It was a splendid ceremony and a much anticipated family reunion.
“Her brothers came in from the States while her Aunty, Ambassador Lilian Onoh, currently Nigeria’s High Commissioner to Namibia also flew into the UK for the ceremony. We joined friends for the post ceremony cocktail and then headed to Brighton Pier for a seaside treat!”
