I also thank him for broadening my scope of knowledge in other aspects of my course of study.

My special appreciation goes to the Love of My Life, Miss Sarah Elebua Abiba for playing the roles of a Mother, a Sister, a Friend and a Wife and for standing by me and supporting me with all she had, and for being there for me at all times, even when I wasn’t always there for her. Honey, you are more than a Woman, I Love You for that and always will.
