In July 2018, the #BellaNaija Features team decided to take a closer look at academia in Nigeria. We recognize that the current state of our educational system leaves a lot to be desired. However, in spite of all the difficulties, Nigerians still go through the system and manage to excel in their field of studies. Even more commendable are Nigerians who go over and beyond graduate level, by attempting and completing post graduate degrees. It is for this reason that we decided to specially recognize and celebrate people who completed their PhDs in Nigeria. Naija Doctorate & Proud is a celebration of Nigerians who have obtained their doctorate degrees from Nigerian universities.

Today, Dr. Godwin Emmanuel Oyedokun has kindly offered to share his Naija Doctorate experience with us. Godwin is a multidisciplinary professional scholar. He is currently the Executive Secretary at International Centre for Tax Research and Development (ICTRD), a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Accounting at Nasarawa State University, a visiting Associate Professor of Accounting & Finance at Saint Monica University, Buea Cameroon, and Associate Professor of Accounting & Finance at Charisma University, Turks & Caicos Island, West Indies, UK., an adjunct/visiting Lecturer at Babcock University, Ajayi Crowther University, McPherson University and Caleb University.

It is no mean feat to obtain a Doctorate any where in the world, and to do it in Nigeria means you rock! Enjoy our chat with Dr. Oyedokun. **
