Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a Nigerian lady, Chika Stacy Oriuwa, made the nation really proud as she graduated from the University of Toronto (UT) school and became a doctor. Oriuwa was the only black student out of a class of 259 students when she enrolled at UT in 2016.
On Tuesday, June 2, the student did not only graduate as the best student but was the school's valedictorian, making her the second black person to have that feat since the inception of the school.
She was the first black student in 14 years with the honour. In 1992, Dr Kristine Whiteheads, a present practitioner in Ottawa, was the first black individual with the honour.
"I am extremely pleased to see that Dr. Oriuwa has been recognized by her peers, it is a tremendous honour," Whitehead recognizes Oriuwa’s feat.
The Nigerian said that she considers it a great privilege to study medicine, saying that it is also a big responsibility to be a doctor.

In speaking about her journey as a person of colour, she stressed the need for black students to have a strong sense of self in their academic pursuit.
"Knowing who you are and what you stand for and what you will and will not tolerate will allow them to encounter any adversity and overcome any adversity," she said.
Oriuwa said that though her determination to succeed gave her strength, the power of the supportive community she had also played a big role in her success.
