"First and foremost, I want to thank God Almighty for His guidance without which none of this would have been possible. Undoubtedly, it has been a long journey but our loving God in his infinite mercy and grace took me by the hand and led me thus far in my academic pursuit.

Ubah said that when he decided to study law, he was prepared to learn, explore and challenge himself to leave his comfort zone and live a new reality.
