A woman, Maria Uloko, has taken to Twitter to celebrate her daddy who despite his old age, studied hard for four years and became a doctor at the age of 65.
Maria said that her dad had to strive for his PhD because he did not want her to be the only doctor in the family. In describing her father, the proud daughter said that he is her cheerleader, someone that is so incomparable to any other.
In making the announcement of his academic success known to his daughter in a text message, the man said:
"I am now Dr Emmanuel Uloko."
He added that when defending his thesis, he had to tell the panel his daughter became a doctor at the age of 23 and that it has always inspired him to go for more.

The tweet has since gone viral on the app, gathering over 300,000 likes and more than 3,000 quoted replies at the time of writing this report.
Below are some of the reactions from tweeps:
"Omg that's so sweet. I'm so happy for you and your dad. He proved that if you want to do it you can. This just inspired me to never give up on improving. Makes me wonder If I should also try to aim to be a Dr. With my nursing background. I wonder if it's possible tho."
"Many congratulations to your father. It's true, our fathers set the standard for all other men in our lives. Like you, I rejoice that my Dad is such a fantastic human, who sets that bar so high."
"With or without PhD, I so envy you for being able to receive a text message from your dad. I cannot anymore, I will not hear or read from him, never more. PhD, you can be proud. But "I love you my darling daughter" is so much more worth."
"Congratulations to the both of you. You took your aspirations to realization and inspirations for the rest of this world. Daddies are the greatest being a Daddy's girl myself. All I can say is WOW OH WOW!!"
