MEET 28-YEAR-OLD Dr Victor Olalusi who scored a perfect 5.0 Cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) in Russian National Research Medical University (RNRMU) in 2013, arguably the first in the world.
Dr Olalusi, who was the best graduating student in the whole Russian Federation in 2013, studied in RNRMU under the Russia-Nigeria Bilateral Education Agreement.
He was honoured at an event in his Nigeria hometown last year and described as a role model to young Nigerians”.
Speaking at the event, Dr MacJohn Nwaobiala, the Permanent Secretary in the ministry said: “We have to search the Guinness Book of Records for anybody who has achieved 5.0 in a university. It is curious and strange that all those that evaluated his performance could not find reason to reduce a point from him.
“You should be the ambassador of the Federal Scholarship Board, Ministry of Education, Nigeria and the Russian Federation,” he said.
