There are many Nigerians in the diaspora making the nation proud in their respective fields. The list of this set of people cannot be exhausted.
Obi Ugochukwu has joined that wonderful set of people as he was reportedly elevated to the status of a commander in the American Navy.
The news of this good development was announced on Tuesday, January 7, by one Iheanyi Daniel Enwerem on Facebook.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Nigerian Abiola Orimolade made the nation proud as he graduated with an excellent MBA degree at Sul Ross State University, Texas.
Abiola started as a normal student and had to write JAMB four times to get into his dream university.
In an interview with the media, he said his parents said he was quite independent at a very young age, saying he wanted to become an engineer like his father. He said what stopped him was his hatred for chemistry and physics.
In 2019, he became the most outstanding student at the American university. He said that the hard work he put into the looking for admission eventually paid off as he graduated with distinction from Obafemi Awolowo University.
Abiola presently has 5+ years of experience and an amazing record in Business Process Management, project & program management, sales and marketing.
