A young Nigerian man has made history in his alma mater after breaking a 39-year-old record that had existed in the department he studied at the Imo State University, IMSU.
Mbagwu Johnpaul Chiagoziem earned a 4.51 in a 5.0 grading system to emerge the first student ever to graduate with a first-class in industrial physics at the educational institution.
The graduate, in a statement, addressed to the University’s 17th Republic Students’ Union Director of Information and Media Comr. Duru Victor said he was motivated to study to bag a first class because his course mates and senior colleagues always told him that it had never been done before.
“… My coursemates and senior colleagues do say [then] no one can graduate with first class. I told them I’m a different person, that I will graduate with that [first class] by God’s grace.”
