The convocation ceremony comes around the same time when Wike, Makinde, Ikpeazu, and Samuel Ortom, Benue governor, met in London.

With the development, Wike joins a growing list of Nigerian politicians whose children graduated from foreign universities.

In June 2016, Atiku Abubakar, former vice-president, announced that his daughter had finished her studies abroad.

In the same year, the son of Aminu Tambuwal, governor of Sokoto state, graduated from the University of Buckingham in London.

Rochas Okorocha, former governor of Imo state, could not hide his joy when his son completed his master’s degree from the Imperial College, London in 2018, having finished at the University of Manchester two years earlier.

The son of Rotimi Amaechi, former governor of Rivers state, also graduated from a Canadian university in 2021.
