The three photos tell a powerful story. A story of Mburu’s rise from grass to grace and attending one of the finest schools in the world.
When I graduated here 24 years ago, my mother was absent from the ceremony, because it was too expensive for her to make the trip from my native village in Kenya to the United States. So you can imagine the joy I felt last week as I brought her for her first visit to the university, at the age of 83! Though uneducated herself, my mother has always valued education and indeed remains one of the smartest people I know.

Archbishop of Canterbury is the senior bishop and principal leader of the Church of England. He is also the symbolic head of the worldwide Anglican Communion and the diocesan bishop of the Diocese of Canterbury.
The visit comes just hours after the president called Nigeria to commiserate with former Ekiti state governor Niyi Adebayo on the death of his father.
The last publicized visit President Buhari got was from his daughter Hadiza. Before then, some political chieftains from the ruling All Progressives Congress also visited him.
