A young Nigerian man, Jake Okechukwu Effoduh, has made it in academia and became a very important scholar.
In a LinkedIn post, the man said that he is very glad to let everyone know that he is now a Queen Elizabeth Scholar (QES).
Added to that big feat, he is also an Advanced Scholars Fellow with the centre for law, technology, and society at the University of Ottawa, Canada.
It should be noted that the QES program was instituted to honour the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the throne.
According to the program website:
“This program represents a unique opportunity to mobilize a dynamic community of young global leaders across Canada to create lasting impacts both at home and abroad through cross-cultural exchanges encompassing international education, discovery and inquiry, and professional experiences.”
Okechukwu is currently a PHD student at the Osogoode Hall Law School in Canada. He got his master’s degrees in law from the University of Oxford, UK, and York University, Canada.
At York, he served in the capacity of an assistant lecturer in the faculty of liberal arts and professional studies. He got his first degree from the University of Abuja.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a Nigerian man, Gift Odoh, finally triumphed despite the long years he spent in school for a programme he ought to have finished sooner.
In a post he made on LinkedIn, Odoh said that he wasted two extra years on a 5-year-programme because of ASUU strikes and “unnecessarily long sessional breaks”.
He said that while he was in school, some of his mates who went to private schools had gone into other phases of their lives like marriage.
