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.
