Nigerian father, son graduate, collect degrees in Scotland - ITREALMS Online

Graduation is no doubt, a time for families to celebrate their loved one’s success, however, this year will be extra special for a Nigerian family who have fallen in love with the University of Dundee, Scotland, reports ITRealms.

Sulaiman Badmus, who graduated Wednesday, June 20, 2018, in Mechanical Engineering would today, June 21st witness his father Abdulwaheed Badmus, feel the tap of the Dundee bonnet as he graduates from Scottish Law.

The pair, ITRealms gathered would follow in the footsteps of Sulamain’s sister, Mariam, who graduated from the University two years ago. Meanwhile, Abdulwaheed’s wife, Khadijat, who will be watching the ceremony, is also due to finish her own degree in Scottish Law later this year.

Sulamain said that the friendliness of Scottish people initially attracted the Badmus family from Ibadan in Nigeria to Scotland.

“Everything is wonderful about Dundee. We think it is marvellous. We were able to integrate so quickly into Scottish culture and feel much more involved here than anywhere else,” he declared.

For his father, Abdulwaheed, Dundee is an excellent example of inclusive education, “it is laudable and something we, as graduates, should be proud of. Studying in Dundee is like a second chance. I will be 55-years-old next year and the University helped me to start a new career with a promising future. Dundee sets the pace for inclusive education for all, irrespective of family backgrounds and ethnic diversities.”

In addition, he pointed out that “No matter who you are and where you are from, I think that Scottish education can help you become who you want to be.”

After graduating, Abdulwaheed says the family intends to continue to practice law in Scotland.

He explained that they do not just want to stay here in Scotland but wanted to work here and run own family law firm and be ambassadors of the University.

“All of this wouldn’t have been possible without the University,” he asserted.
