Nigerian Muslim professor bags PhD in Christian Studies


A Nigerian Muslim Professor, Rasheed Jimoh-Ijaodola, has bagged a doctorate degree in Christian studies at the University of Ilorin.

Jimoh-Ijaodola is a Professor of Law and Dean, Oba Erediauwa College of Law at Igbinedion University, Okada, Edo State.

A statement signed by Head, Public and External Relations Unit at Igbinedion University, Obajide Ilugbo, made this known on Tuesday, 31st October, 2017 to the News Agency of Nigeria.

Ilugbo said that Jimoh-Ijaodola’s thesis examined biblical prophesies and other prophesies, including prophesies of the late Sage and Prophet, Nostradamus.

He further said that the Don’s research focused on the end time and the role of humans in the fulfilment of those prophesies.

Jimoh-Ijaodola, according to him, is a faithful and practicing Muslim, who bagged his first Ph.D. in Electoral Law from the University of Jos, while his second Ph.D. was in Property law from the University of Ibadan.

In the third Ph.D Thesis, he posited “the end is now and that humans should be careful so that the end will not come upon us as the biblical thief that came unexpectedly.

“He pleaded that the world should embrace peace and live in harmony for the sake of the earth and humanity.

“Nations should be careful of war and proliferation of weapon of mass destruction”, Ilugbo said.

Ilugbo said that Jimoh-Ijaodola in his thesis stressed the need to take care of “our environment” very well so that it was not endangered.

“The end time scenario is a picture of man eating man and that the problem will most likely start on the claim on ownership of Jerusalem.”

He quoted Jimoh-Ijaodola as saying that the earth was throttling fast toward a certain end and that the survival of the earth depends on mans will to embrace God totally.


  1. I really think there is a big gap between theory and practical. Books and degrees are different from the practical aspect of religion. Let all pastors bag PhD degree in Arabic or Islamic religion and vice versa, that doesn’t count when it concerns the practice. To start with, does anyone know the motive behind his action? Am sure he’s not the first to have done that as there are many Pastors with degrees in the other religion too. The point is, people do things for various reasons and if I must say, theory and practical are different. PhD in Theology or Arabic cannot solve the problem. How many Professors do we have in government in Nigeria and how has they positively affected their environment? My opinion though.
