Pastor Adeboye took the trip down memory lane on Tuesday at UNN where he was awarded honourary doctorate degree.

“I left UNN in 1966 without a degree. Sixty years later, I have gotten a degree from UNN, now not as a first degree but a doctorate degree. That is why I feel elated. I am overwhelmed,” he said.

On why he chose UNN over University of Ibadan, Adeboye said it was owing to jollof rice and chicken he saw students of the institution eating while he was on excursion in 1962.

“I took a pebble from the ground asked God to make me come to the University. The following year, 1963, God answered my prayers,” he recalled.
