The House of Representatives is set to honour Ayodele Dada, the University of Lagos student, who graduated from the Department of Psychology about two weeks ago with Cumulative Grade Points Average (CGPA) of 5.0.
Mr. Dada made history as the first graduate of a Nigerian University to record a perfect score – A’s throughout his course of study.
The House leader, Femi Gbajabiamila, in a letter dated March 21 and addressed to all the members, said that such recognition would celebrate the feat recorded by the student and serve to encourage other Nigerian students.
Gbajabiamila told members or the House of Representatives in the letter that such an achievement was the first in the history of Nigeria.
“I believe as leaders and as a country it’s time we start celebrating our successes particularly in a period of great national despondency that has enveloped us for years now.
“As a House I believe we should recognize, celebrate and commend Mr Ayodele so as to encourage him and give hope and inspiration to many others.
“To this end, I wish for you to join me as we suspend the House rules to invite Mr Ayodele Dada to the floor of the House on Tuesday 22nd March (today) to honour the young man and his remarkable achievement”, he said in the letter.
