The Federal Ministry of Education on Wednesday in Abuja honoured Dr Victor Olalusi who scored 5.0 Cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) in the Faculty of Clinical Sciences, Russian National Research Medical University, Moscow (RNRMU) in 2013, arguably the first in the world to do so.
Olalusi, studied in RNRMU under the Russia-Nigeria Bilateral Education Agreement.
He had previously recorded same feats while still younger.
He had the best WAEC result in 2004.
First Class Architecture (FUTA) in 2005.
JAMB Best Science Student (JAMB score 322) – 2006, Cowbell Prize Award – 2006.
Medicine First Merit list (OAU) in 2006. Highest OAU Post UME (score – 325) – 2006.
The Guy is clearly a geek.
He is currently undergoing the one year compulsory National Youth Service scheme in Rivers State.
Speaking at the event, Dr MacJohn Nwaobiala, the Permanent Secretary in the ministry said a lot of Nigerian students were brilliant but Olalusi was a genius.
He said Olalusi had become an ambassador not only to the ministry but to Nigeria and Russia.
“We have to search the Guinness Book of Records for anybody who has achieved 5.0 in a university. It is curious and strange that all those that evaluated his performance could not find reason to reduce a point from him.
“You should be the ambassador of the Federal Scholarship Board, Ministry of Education, Nigeria and the Russian Federation.
“I look forward to the day you will stand before the President to receive your honour. We have recommendations to that effect, ’’ Nwaobiala said.
