Nigerian Student Breaks Academic Records At Japanese University
A Nigerian student has broken a 30-year-old mathematical equation at one of the most prestigious Japanese universities!
A Nigerian student, Ufot Ekong who is from Akwa Ibom State has become the first Nigerian to receive a First Class degree and become the best overall student from Tokai University in Tokyo, Japan since 1965.
The last time anyone graduated with a similar Grade Points Average (GPA) was 50 years ago. Mr. Ufot Ekong, a multi-talented Nigerian youth, has artistry in music, specializing in Saxophone. He distinguished himself from the outset in the school when he won the Japanese language best student award.
The self-sponsored student, who combined two jobs with studies, won many other awards in the University, altogether numbering about six.
In addition, Ekong was able to solve a 30 year unresolved mathematical equation and he did that in his first semester.
He speaks English, Yoruba, French and Japanese. It is no overstatement to say Ufot Ekong is destined for greatness.
Congrats to this brilliant student on all his future endeavors in Nigeria and around the world!
