Oxford Don to reward UNILORIN best graduating students

Date: 2017-10-22

Prof. Chris Imafidon of the University of Oxford has pledged to reward the best graduating students from the University of Ilorin (Unilorin).

Imafidon made the pledge on Saturday in Ilorin during the convocation ceremonies for the 2016 and 2017 graduating students of the university.

In his paper entitled: "The Genius in You", he said his foundation - Excellence in Education Programme - would reach-out to the best and worst graduating male and female of the institution.

According to him, every individual has an inborn genius which might be suppressed, repressed or expressed.

Imafidon said the worst graduating students were not the worst but mis-educated in a particular field and could be redefined to be geniuses and talented with the best counsel.

He called on the Federal Government to invest in education and reap the reward of the brain wealth in Nigeria.

The don also called for a national discuss in the House of Assembly on how to bring up children.

The university graduated 9, 018 students from various departments with 89 of the graduating students ending with First Class degrees.NAN
