      Its an insult to ppl like us who are actually working on our Ph.D. What was her theses about? Was here research method a quantitative or qualitative research method.

    • TO oh no

      What has she achieved at 37 years that justifies this award? This is why Nigeria will always be an under-performing hamlet! Shame***

      I’m about to hand in my PhD THESIS after 4 long challenging years [in 2weeks]!

      I promise you, an honorary doctorate is not related to an academic doctorate – it is only out of ignorance that people accept the honorary one… its in actuality an empty brief!

      KEEP GOING AT YOUR WORK – there is pleasure and satisfaction in knowledge*

    All you asking for her credentials, being the wife of a billionaire is not beans o. And in the subconscious minds of some of us, becoming a billionaire’s wife is a major achievement. Let’s be honest.
    Congrats Sade Okoya.

    Oops? While Sade is busy wiping her ass with naira notes; many of you hating her hard luck are busy wishing you could pick d wipes from her sewage! Anybody hating on Sade is on a long thing… Her Runs was successful and sure paid well!

      there’s more t life than ‘successful runs’ – if you lived among decent people of the world, you’d be sorely ashamed of your statement!

      The NIGERIAN mentality has a way of messing up one’s mind – I blame it on the hapless politicians who have inflicted poverty on the land an minds!

    looool..this is like one of the lines in americanah novel by Chimamanda Adichie; where the magazine Ifemelu used to work at would interview rich women or wives of rich men who really didn’t work for a living and they would boast and boast and cap it all with God . *yawn* i have work to go to…am not hating but it’s sad that somethings on earth are not how they should be
