cool stuff, the wind of intelligence is back upon us. I wish our leaders could take a lead from this and try to do this that are not detrimental to the populace and stop person enrichment; empower individual and years from now we would look at our children as smile knowing we gave it our best.

We have always been told we are the leaders of tomorrow, obviously the "tomorrow" isn't here yet.

I have cousin's who could not pass exams but went out to EMU and came out tops, in 2010 my cousin (female) was tops and granted MSc scholarship in the UK.

Our educational system have been distorted, when i was in the university from my first year till i graduated i took (12 - 15) courses most of which were irrelevant and a total waste of my time. lectures will fail you cos they perceive you been better than they could ever be, they would ask for sex from female students and still fail them and many others. We need redemption in this country, we've got suppressed potentials. If i continue i might end up writing an article fit for publication...

I graduated the same day with him, i was in the front row with him during the ceremony. i was shouting and screaming "Naija for life, thanks for making the country proud". He really made us proud. That is the president of Northern Cyprus Dr. Derviş Eroğlu. I graduated from International Relations department.

@MAMA Advisor June 29, 2012 11:15 AM, it is right for Linda to post as many of these stories as possible. If anything it encourages others to do the same or at least strive to do better. Nigerians need these kinds of stories if not we're stuck with "role models" that steal, rape and kill.

Nonya said...

Good for the guy but as MAMA Advisor talk, there are Naija's representing all over the world. Graduating as the best student in some no-name school in an obscure part of the world cannot and should not be news abeg. Now if the guy comes out of an Ivy-League school with a 4.0, i will throw wey salute. Cyprus of all places. Imagine the insult to students of MAULAG reading this. Hiss

Well done o. I wish Nigerian universities let their students learn anything. I graduated from psychology dept in a great uni in niga and when I go though advanced textbooks I wonder what I even learnt.handout after handout,no sensible explanation and strange exam questions.after exam when asked how it was,I just frown because I think smiling makes me fail.when I see C.S.I am always impressed.well looking forward to travel out and brush up sha

Who gives a damn where he graduated from? still better than all the so called once upon a time great names in Nigeria i.e, UNN, UI,Ahmadu Bello..to mention a few who all lost track and aren't recognized in the world today! Look up the Universities in Syrus and see its world recognition before you use your finger to type nonsense!!. Some people are just so daft and think they're better than others,instead of you to "congratulate", you're spitting negativity and wish to be recognized as this young man? Well keep dreaming. Kudos young man,a big congrats to you and the sky is your stepping stone!

And what's wrong with LIB celebrating every single good news like this she comes accross? My friend its her blog and she's a proud Nigerian,deal with it or go suck on a lime! smdh... I didt attend the same school,but am happy they produced a great (my wish for Tunji) engineer in him!

@Anonymous 2:08 PM

If you were smart enough, you'll understand that grading system differs and when calculated it'll still be a first class in Nigerian educational system! Dundy United!

Congrats bro. Abeg find a way to also start your own company after 5/6yrs.
Companies will be rushing you left and right.
But then, start your own consultancy Maximum 10years. And build our international company. Keep up the goodwork. Impressed.

I'm proud of him. No doubt, Nigerians are book smart but it's time to start innovating things. Let all these beautiful talent come together and build an empire.

I like how Asians, do it. China is the next big thing.

Anonymous said...

@ anon 2.08pm, its 2nd class upper in UI and Nigerian universities because they operate on a scale of 5.0. In american and cyprus universities its on a scale of 4.0. Hence his 4.0 in cyprus is equivalent to a 5.0 in Nigeria.

deekay said...

Lol strange exam questions. I'm curious to see an example.

deekay said...

Congrats!! Wish I was as smart as these ppl. But like someone pointed out, all fingers are not equal. :(

Dear BaBa God, thank you for this change of tide for good; there is yet hope for Nigeria. As we celebrate these young people, purify their hearts to be the change 9ja needs. Direct their footsteps to reform and build our country and let their perfomance be challege to our youth to strive for excellence instead of trying to cut corners. And all the Yam heads that are busy diverting our money for personal gains, ( shango, where are u) make them god of thunder fry them. Congratulations, young man! Linda, you do well.... In d mist of all d palava plaguing 9ja, let us have something to smile about. Dalu oo

St. Thomas' Secondary School, Kano gas been the secondary school in the country going by the many awards it has received and great people it has produced. It is time the Federal Government recognizes this small institution and come to its aid. This is just a few of many academic breakthroughs made by the students of this school. There are many, many more!!!!
So arise Oh St Thames Old Boys Association and celebrate yet another of your own. In goc signum vince!
