Nigerians on social media have celebrated Professor Ndubuisi Ekekwe, the founder of First Atlantic Semi Conductor and Microelectronics.
This was after a LinkedIn user identified as Emmanuel Nduka took to the platform to shower encomium on the first class graduate of the Federal University of Technology, Owerri.
Ndubuisi, who hails from Abia state, co-designed iPhone & iPad's XL sensor. The professor has been an inspiration to many youths aspiring to greatness.
Nduka's post on LinkedIn read in part:
"Recently, His family constructed a road in Ovim without waiting for the government to do so. He also used that to challenge Nigerians not to wait for the government to do everything.
"Today, I choose to celebrate people that inspire me and he is one of such. Thanks for all you do Sir. God bless you. Surely, I will meet you someday.
"Let's celebrate him please."
Many joined in the celebration

Emuobosa Onerhime commented:
"Every day I log on to LinkedIn, I am always excited to read from Prof. Ndubuisi Ekekwe. He is a real doer to be proud of.
"LinkedIn post and comment character limits are too short to describe what a great man he is. Maybe an article would do justice to it.
"I really like the fact that he follows trends, plays a part in conversations and remains firm on his arguments against all odds.
"Prof. Ndubuisi Ekekwe is a great man. I celebrate him too!"
Bashir Muheeb wrote:
"Well done Emmanuel for the initiative. I quite agree with you that Prof motivates you. To buttress my point, personally, I have gained and benefited immensely from his daily write-up.
"Indeed, he is an eminent Professor, he provides impeccable and nugget information and idea to any pressing issue- be it economy, business, academic and human development. I respect his intellect.
