I am Still Running Away; Man Who ‘Disappeared’ from Nigeria after 6 Years Shows off His PhD

A Nigerian man by the name Nwakanma Mfonobong Aderibigbe Cosmas had after spending 6 years studying for his PhD in Federal University of Technology, Owerri (FUTO), took a surprising decision to quit and has now reaped the benefit of that move.

Cosmas despite a CGPA of 4.86 had dumped his academic endeavour which he started in 2012 to start afresh in Korea from where he got his PhD over two years.

Nwakanma Mfonobong Aderibigbe Cosmas took to Facebook to Celebrate his academic feat noting that he became depressed in FUTO after discovering that the country’s educational system wasn’t one that assured timely completion of graduate studies.

In his words, he said: “I became depressed and sad that we are running a system with no clear rules and sustainable standard to guarantee a timely completion of graduate studies in Nigeria.”

He stated that his decision to run away from Nigeria had paid -off as he was able to achieve a lot. He left the shores of the country on the 11th of October 2018.

He added that apart from his PhD certificate, he has 21 Domestic Korean Conference papers, 6 International Journals, 21 International conference papers.

He called his years in Nigerian University a waste because according to him, despite having a high CGPA, he couldn’t make it to the point of graduation.

“The phrase “Running” is my signature language since I joined Facebook. It simply means Keep working hard and focusing on the most important thing for your future. Run away means go away from anything or anyone or anywhere draining you and flourish. In simple terms it means choose your battle.

“I used it also during the 2015 and 2019 elections to mean avoid politicians with no plan for Nigeria.

“My 6 to 7 years was “wasted” since I could not make it to the point of graduation despite my CGPA of 4.86. So, if I did 6 to 7 years on something and could not graduate it is a wasted years” he said.

Many Nigerians have reacted positively as many could be seen congratulating him. One of those that have reacted to his story has praised his wife for being a supportive wife all along
