Veteran Journalist, Chris Kehinde Nwandu Graduates With Second Class Upper in Law

Chris Kehinde Nwandu, Nigeria's foremost journalist and online publisher, has completed his second degree in Law with a second-class upper division.

Nwandu was among the graduates at Lead City University's 15th Convocation ceremony on Saturday in Ibadan, Oyo State.

Chris Kehinde Nwandu, who received his first degree from Lagos State University 32 years ago, joined his colleagues at the graduation ceremony presided over by Prof Kabiru Adeyemo, Vice Chancellor of the University, and other principal officers of the institution.

While speaking with newsmen at the ceremony Nwandu said he decided to study law in order to enhance and broaden his knowledge.

Nwandu recalled how he was arrested in 2015 over a publication he made as the Editor-in-Chief of CKN News and was reminded at Ikoyi Prison for 13 days until he perfected his bail conditions 

The case was eventually struck out, and according to him, that singular act was another motivational factor why he opted for law studies at the age of 55.

On his future plans, Mr Nwandu confirmed that he awaits to be mobilized for the mandatory Law School programme anytime soon.

"I am happy to fulfil my childhood dream. It was not an easy task combining my job with full-time studies, especially law but I was determined to make a success of it. Most of my classmates were my daughter's age mate, she graduated last year from Bowen University with a first class in Computer Science I did not allow the age difference to be a barrier rather it became a motivational factor for me.

I want to use this opportunity to appreciate my family for all the support and to my lecturers at the Faculty of Law Leadcity University for making it possible for me to realize my lifetime ambition. 

Chris Kehinde Nwandu is an Associate Member of the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (ANIPR), the Advertising Regulatory Council of Nigeria (ARCON), Chartered Institute of Arbitration, the Institute of Chartered Mediators And Councillors and among so many other professional bodies.

Nwandu is a Public Affairs Analyst and the Presenter of the popular Political Programme  INSIDE POLITICS WITH CKN  on STV and NEWS24.
