In a statement made to the University's 17th Republic Students' Union Director of Information and Media Comr. Duru Victor as seen by Legit.ng on Facebook, he said he was motivated to study to graduate with a first-class because his coursemates and senior colleagues always told him that it had never been done before.

And he turned that into a challenge and motivation and today it is a dream turned reality.

He said:

"... 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."

He was also full of praises for one of his lecturers identified as Prof. T. C. Chineke who, according to him, was pivotal to his academic success.

He recounted how the academic will always challenge him to finish with nothing short of first-class, a challenge he'd later embrace.
