A 50-year-old woman, Mrs. Ajayi Folashade has been lauded by social media users after pictures of her in a school uniform flooded the internet.
The elderly woman recently enrolled at Ilorin Grammar School, and started at Junior Secondary 2, with kids younger than her children as her classmates.
The woman, who hopes to become a teacher someday, said she enrolled in school to better herself. She added that she hopes to encourage people her age to follow through with their dreams irrespective of age.
She also called on the government to create adult education programs so older scholars won’t have to sit with children to learn.
