A former student at Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok, Borno State, Lydia Pogu, has delivered a moving speech during her convocation at Southeastern University, United States.
Pogu, who was one of the about 300 students abducted on April 14, 2014 by Boko Haram terrorists, bagged a master’s degree at the university after earning a bachelor degree from the same university.
While recounting the abduction experience, she thanked the institution for being supportive throughout her academic programmes, stressing that she was surrounded by “loving and caring people in my life that I will never trade our friendships for anything else.”
She said, “My fellow graduates, today is divine milestone in our live although you may have experienced pain and hardship…. My fellow graduates I will like to share my journey with you, I am hoping this will be a source of inspiration for you all; the journey of life has made me to be a woman standing in front of you today. My journey is example of God love, grace and his faithfulness. (DailyTrust)
