Final year student of Redeemer’s University Nigeria (RUN), Adebayo Debo, who was expelled over an alleged disreputing post on social media has finally graduated from the faith-based institution.

In a bid to defend his reputation, it was reported that Debo sued the university and both parties later decided to settle out of court.
Writing on his Facebook page about finally graduating, Debo expressed narrates his hurdles and expressed his gratitude.
In his words, Debo said: “I struggled and bled for 10 solid years at 4 different Universities for this day. Today is not the day to say if my fight and struggle was right or wrong at these Universities. We are all different people and we have different purposes and visions. Mine is to preach and practice love. To stand for what is right even till death.
Could I have aired my grievances and opinions in better ways? Yes. Do I feel sorry for the pain I must have put my Family and friends through; emotionally, financially, psychologically and otherwise? Totally. But I do not and will never regret any action that I took innocently that positively impacted, enriched and made the lives of others better.
Simply because this is what God created me for. To serve, to live my life for others and never will I trade this rare attribute for anything else even if it makes me suffer.
This moment is for Family, friends and everyone who has stood by me all the way. Thank you. As for me, this is only a reminder of greater work ahead.”
Adebayo Debo graduated with a Second Class Honours (Upper Division),
