Ozibo Ekele Graduates From University Of Ibadan With CGPA Of 6.6 Breaks Record by JosWatchDog(m): 6:01pm On Oct 28, 2017
What appears to be, perhaps the longest elusive academic jinx in Nigeria was recently broken by Ozibo Ekele, a 2016 graduate of the famed Ibadan School of History (Department of History), Faculty of Arts, University of Ibadan, where he finished top of the Faculty and Department with a B.A. (First Class Honours) and a CGPA of 6.6 out of a possible 7.0.

By this feat, he became the first person to graduate with First Class Honours in the 69-year-old Department. Ozibo who is also a 2013 Mass Communication graduate of the University of Nigeria Nsukka, is therefore expected to cart away several academic Prizes in the forthcoming 2017 Convocation ceremony of the University of Ibadan.

These include, Best Graduating Student of both Faculty of Arts and Department of History; Dr. Robert Bradbury Memorial Prize; Irving and Bonar Prize; Oba Lipede Prize; CUSO Nigeria Limited Prize; J.A. Atanda Memorial Prize; and Omoyisola Atanda Memorial Prize in History. We say big congrats to him.

Congrats to him. But sincerely don’t understand why I will go for another bachelors degree in art when I already have one earlier. Different people and their choices sha.

After Bachelors degree in mass comm, I will now go and study history at bachelors level again? God knows I will never try that, in this world or the next .

The only course I will go back to study at bachelors level best be LL.B

Any way all mallam with him kettle like they say

It`s not about graduating with 10.0!
It`s graduating and finding a worthwhile and Lucrative job in this hoax of a nation!
Then we`ll know it was worth it!

Any lecturer (particularly those who themselves were first class graduates) who is unable to produce a first class material, at least, every 2 years is a failure.

Every year we hear of certain pupils who made all As in their O' levels. Most of them gain admission into Nigerian tertiary institutions and these useless lecturers cannot take these fine raw materials and turn into wonderful finished goods. Is it that they are deliberately trying to hide their inadequacies?
Yet, a relatively large number of Nigerian students studying in western institutions are able to graduate with distinctions.
