    What kind of Pangolo degree be this? Commonwealth University of Belize! I am shaking my head. What does this guy want to the with that useless degree from such a crap university, except to call himself doctor. Nigerians please go to a decent university not crap ones that you can write rubbish thesis and get a doctorate degree so cheaply..

      Is this suppose to make us laugh or what? You are very myopic in your thoughts and I’m quite sure that If we dig deep enough, we’ll see that your own University (if any) is not any better. How can someone get 2 doctorate degrees and such crap as this will come out of your head? Who cares where he got it from? It’s the hard work and due diligence that matters. And the funny thing is, I’m confident that up until today, you had never heard of University of Belize, so how can you conclude that it’s crap?

      SO WHAT? As long as he leaves the university with KNOWLEDGE that he can impart to others…Where is your Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Brown, Oxford, Cambridge, NYU degrees? Where e dey? Instead of congratulating someone for the great work they’ve done, na beans to study for PH.D? If na so, how come many more people don’t have it? At least, I know he earned it from those universities as opposed to the ones buying theirs in Nigeria. Abeg, give respect where respect is due and stop trying to qualify someone’s work according to your own personal standards. Who cares if he does it just to be called DR? He paid for those degrees, he put in the time to study! If he wants to wipe his behind with the degree afterwards or hang it at the front of his gate for all to see, that na him business not yours and certainly not mine. There are many doctors who go to med school in small caribbean islands because they are affordable, is the human body different to them than to those who studied at Harvard? Don’t despise people’s humble beginnings, you don’t know what the Lord is going to do with them.

    Congrats o, but when will Naijas start using their brain for other things not just acquiring degree upon degree just for the title. We are booksmart, that’s it. We need more to develop ourselves like how Asians do it.

    When God blesses someone and all you do is tear them down do you realise that it is that same God you are expecting to bless you? I feel very sorry for you, i perceive you must be a mean bitter human being

    I have once attended the Commonwealth University Regional Seminar. The quality of their faculty is amazing. Erudite scholars and industry professionals and consultants.
    Congratulations Dr Linus Idahosa!

    This is a fake University, it only exist in that Dubai convocation arena, recall that their Nigeria partner, “Prof” Iornem is currently being prosecuted by the ICPC. You may wish to find out from the Belize Consulate in Nigeria if such Institution exist anywhere on their soil. Money-for-Degree.
