There is a popular saying that age is nothing but numbers, this has played out in the life of a 50 years old Nigerian woman, Mrs Ajayi Folashade who enrolled herself in a junior secondary at Ilorin
Mrs Ajayi Folashade believes that anything is possible with determination. she is from Iludun Oro in Irepodun Local Government Area of Kwara State, she equally spoke with the newsmen on the reason she return to school at old age, a decision that has kept many people wondering what she wanted to achieve in school at such age.
She further explained that she has so much passion for education during her childhood days but she did not have the opportunity to acquire it then that her love for education prompted her to enroll at an old age.
According to her,
My dream is to become a classroom teacher, I have so much passion for education during my childhood days but I do not have the opportunity to acquire it then, my love for education prompted me to enroll when I’m now 50 years of age
The school management did not collect a dime from me, they said the state government has taken care of everything ( School Fees, Educational materials, school uniforms) all are provided for free just to motivate me and prospective students who are in my category.
