The popular saying that age is nothing but numbers has played out in the life of a Nigerian woman. This time it is regarding academic pursuit.
The woman who is aged 50 was spotted in a secondary school as she settled down for the lectures.
In a post on Otujoleblog, the woman whose name wasn’t given enrolled herself in junior secondary school level, class two at the Ilorin Grammar School, Ilorin.
In the shared image, she could be seen, having an expression of one who is elated at achieving an feat, on the institution’s full school wear of a pink gown with a matching beret as she looked set to scribble something on paper.
Behind her, probably staring at the person who took the image, were school children much younger than she is. It also appeared that the school is a mixed one as boys could be seen seated behind her, likewise girls.
No information was given as to why she took the decision to enroll herself in school or if she had schooled in the past but one thing is clear, she has a clear-cut purpose – she wants to be educated and she wasn’t going to allow her age stand in her way.
