UNILAG record setting graduate reveals secrets of success

02 March 2016, 18:54

Lagos - Ayodele Daniel Dada, the record breaking graduate of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) has disclosed measures he put in place to achieve the feat.

The 29-year-old Psychology graduate who is the first student of the institution to graduate with 5.0GPA said being the best was not only about reading books, but having a balanced life and surmounting impossibilities.

He said the fact that he was a first class student did not stop him from being very sociable in school.

He said he attended birthday parties, cinemas, and has a lot of movies on his laptop but was not lucky enough to have a girlfriend.

After receiving his scroll at the 2014/2015 convocation, he said he has been approached by many companies, three of them multinationals.

Dada, who is working as an intern in one of the firms he refused to mention, said he has not made up his mind which one to go with.

At the convocation, Dada carted home prizes worth N1 million for his sterling performance.

He won eight awards of various categories, including the Vice Chancellor’s award for the best graduating student, worth N600 000.  He also got N500 000 from the UNILAG Alumni Association, which was presented by the National president, Dr Sunny Kuku.
