Seventy years old former Under 20 coach graduates with a first class from UNIJOS

A former head coach of Nigeria under 20,Ben Duamlong , and assistant coach for the Super Eagles during Korea /Japan 2022 World Cup has just graduated with a first class degree from the University of Jos.

The former coach  who is 70 years old was among the 20,532 students that graduated from the university in 2023. He took up the degree programme because of his love for education after his retirement as a football coach.


Ben Duamlong, who graduated with a  painting degree at the University, made the list of 112 students who graduated with a  first class degree.


Speaking to Daily Trust he said;


“What prompted me to go back to the university at this age is because of my passion for art. All my life, I have always drawn but never painted. I like painting. I can draw but I can’t paint. So, after retiring in 2014, as a footballer, I stayed home doing nothing. That is why I decided to go back to school.”

It’s very interesting to find people who always achieve what they want without barriers.
