He admitted that his Twitter moniker which was set in 2016 was actually inspired by his dream of someday studying at the prestigious institution and appreciated God for making it a reality.
He went on to appreciate the scholarship awarders and his independent sponsors for being pivotal to his success. His tweets read in part:
"I am excited to announce that God did it! I recently resumed at the University of Oxford as an MSc in Law and Finance (MLF) candidate and an Alex Deno Foundation Scholar.
"The journey here was not without some road bumps but God has been incredibly kind to me. On any platform, I never shy away from the opportunity to say, it is not the lack of talent or prowess that limits us as Africans but the lack of means and resources.
"Needless to say that without the scholarships from the Faculty of Law, University of Oxford, the Alex Deno Foundation and my independent sponsors, this dream would have remained nothing but a dream, a spineless one! For this reason, I cannot thank all of them enough..."
