A former Lagos bus conductor identified as Mike Olu Akinlabi has really proven to world that no condition is permanent as he bags PHD degrees from an Australian university.
Mike revealed that his life changing journey began twenty years ago when all he had was a dream.
“20 years ago, the only thing I had was a dream. Though I had beautiful dreams, the physical resources to meet my heart desires were beyond my reach. I was homeless, worked as a motor boy or bus conductor (Nigerians will understand this)….
Despite all these challenges, I dedicated at least 2 hours each day to develop myself. I was told several times to quit trying. I was told to stop dreaming.
“To keep the story short, in 2006 I had my first degree and I graduated top in my class. In 2010, an MSc; in 2011, an MPhil from the University of Cambridge; in 2016, a PhD in Criminology and Criminal Justice from Griffith University Australia.”
Akinlabi is currently a lecturer in criminology at the prestigious University of New England, Australia.
