He sat for the 1977 West African School Certificate Examination in a funny combination of courses namely; History, Bible Knowledge, English, Mathematics, Economics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology.

Achievements in school

He was made the Library Prefect in the school and the best-graduating student of his set.

He graduated in 1983 as a Veterinary Doctor at the age of 22, obtaining the departmental prize of the Department of Veterinary Physiology and Pharmacology, and was registered with the Veterinary Council of Nigeria with number 1129.
