However, two pastors encouraged them not to leave the country for spiritual grounds, and they took their advice.

Alex recently graduated from the University of Benin with a second bachelor’s degree, and his girlfriend, Favour, celebrated him on social media.

In her words; “I still recall the day @Alex_Houseof308 told me he wants to start another degree in a different school. I asked him if he would consider going abroad, and I would sponsor it. Lmfaooo. Ontop the 1k braids I dey do for hostel that year.

“I got admission for him in China. Long story short, two pastors in different states saw a vision for babe that he must not travel abroad until he completed his degree in Nigeria. Some prophesies are mind blowing, but we accepted. Jamb lesson for Uniben started. Alex had to increase his focus on Twitter because he did not want his parents to sponsor him in school. During my school holiday, I came to Benin to help him.

“We would attend the JAMB lesson together, I would be taking recordings and writing notes for him. At night, I would explain and revise with him. Did this for a while till I went back to school for final semester. I signed out and my boo passed his JAMB exam with 266. He barely prepared for that exam, but I thank God. I left Lagos fully in 2019 to Benin City to help him look for an apartment, but good stuff, kitchen utensils and so on. I did not plan on staying for more than a month.

“Lmfaoo, every weekend when I should travel, Alex will find another excuse for me to stay. Finally, I just gave up. Classes started, we were broke, but we pushed on. Before we bought our first car, I would follow babe to his exam hall and wait outside with his phones, helping him post campaigns and taking work calls. Lmfaooo. We lost jobs, we were hungry sometimes, we struggled sometimes, but God was faithful. My mom, My MIL kept encouraging us, praying for us. First time parents and we suffered. Taking trips to the hospital almost everyday for 3 months. But here we are.

“@Alex_Houseof308 is a graduate today. My baby is signing out todayyyyyyyyyyy🤭🤭🤭🤭 It could have only been God. On to another adventure baby boy.”

Meanwhile, Alex posted some images from his signing out ceremony on Twitter, along with a brief account of the obstacles he overcame.

He mentioned that he had to deal with an eight-month ASUU strike and a coronavirus epidemic while overseeing a four-year plan that is now complete.

“4 years + 8 months ASUU strike + 1 year pandemic break equals me, finally out of UNIBEN,” he wrote.

Netizens react:
