The graduate, in a statement, addressed to the University’s 17th Republic Students’ Union Director of Information and Media Comr. Duru Victor said he was motivated to study to bag a first class because his course mates and senior colleagues always told him that it had never been done before.

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.”

Mbagwu also thanked one of his lecturers identified as Prof. T. C. Chineke who, according to him, was pivotal to his academic success.
