Can we all remember Ayodele Dada, the only student in the history of Nigeria that has graduated with not just First class, but 5.0CGPA. Heaven seems to be smiling at Ayodele Dada now as Lawmakers in the House of Representatives are set to honour the University of Lagos psychology student a fortnight ago.
House leader, Femi Gbajabiamila said in a letter dated March 21 and addressed to all the members that such recognition would celebrate the feat recorded by the student and serve to encourage other Nigerian students.
Gbajabiamila told members 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.
