Two beautiful Nigerian sisters named Hauwah K. K. AbdulKareem and Habibah K. K. Aiyelabegan have bagged PhD degrees in economics and business administration (management) respectively on the same day, Siggy reports.
In a celebratory post on LinkedIn, Hauwa while appreciating God for the completion of the academic venture, showered encomiums on their parents for exposing them to a world of possibilities and not treating them differently as females.
In different eulogies for her parents, Hauwa hailed her dad for training, believing and being there for them.
The lady described her dad as someone she can call at 12 midnight when bereft of ideas.
In her words: “Thank you daddy, for educating us, training us, supporting us, motivating us, building us, molding us, pushing us, believing in us and being there for us.
My dad is always there in every sense of the phrase. Daddy is someone I can call at 12 midnight when I’m running out of ideas or at 4:00am when I am in pains.“
For her mum, Hauwa wrote: “Thank you mummy for allowing us turn your house into a restaurant, crèche and library in the course of the journey. Thank you for inculcating in us the virtue of patience and perseverance.“
