Nigerian Lady Achieves what Grandfather Couldn’t as She Bags MBA from University of Oxford, UK

A woman identified as Chido Chigweredere has bagged an MBA from the University of Oxford, the institution her grandfather couldn’t attend despite being given admission. Chido, who dedicated her academic achievement to her grandfather, said the man was given full scholarship by the varsity but he deferred because he wanted to send his siblings to school.

A woman identified as Chido Chigwedere has achieved a dream her grandfather couldn’t as she bagged an MBA from the University of Oxford.

Taking to her LinkedIn page to make the disclosure, the woman said her grandfather was offered full scholarship for his DPhil in African History but he had to defer the admission.

According to Chido, after her grandfather finished from the University of London, College of Rhodesia and Nyasaland, he was offered the University of Oxford scholarship in 1964.

In her words:

“He accepted but deferred because he wanted to finish putting his siblings through school before pursuing his dream. He deferred until the offer lapsed.”

The same offer was given to Chido’s grandfather but this was from Columbia University. Sadly, he was arrested in Malawi on his way to school because he was suspected to be a liberation fighter.

In Chido’s words:

“He was deported back to Southern Rhodesia where he eventually earned an MPhil through distance education with the University of London.”

She said her grandfather always regretted not attending either school but would have regretted not sending his siblings to school more.

According to Chido, the man spent the rest of his life helping others fulfil their dreams through education.

She wins big for her grandpa
Chido achieved what her grandfather couldn’t as she finished from the University of Oxford and dedicated the academic feat to him.

In her words:

“I dedicate this win and everything that led up to it to the man who gave me my slightly asymmetrical smile – my Sekuru. Thank you for doing everything you did to make us everything we are.”
