Nigerian man breaks 133-year-old record in Russian University

A bright Nigerian scholar has broken a 133-year-old record in a Russian University, after he finished his course with a perfect cumulative grade point average (CGPA).

The medical doctor identified as Justin Chukwudi Olewuezi recently bagged a degree from Siberian State Medical University, Tomsk in Russia with a 5.0 CGPA.

According to The Punch, Justin is the first Nigerian to finish from the institution, breaking a 133-year-old record.

The bright scholar’s academic venture kick-started at the Air Force Comprehensive School in Enugu.

After writing the United Tertiary Matriculation Examination conducted by the Joint Admission Matriculation Board twice and scoring 247 and 260 respectively, without gaining admission into a Nigerian university, he decided to set his sights abroad.

He said with the help of his mother, he was able to achieve his dreams. Olewuezi said,

“I had always wanted to study abroad and obviously make something of myself back in Air Force comprehensive school, Enugu. So after failing to gain admission twice even with JAMB scores 247 and 260 respectively, I decided to study abroad. So after talking with a Russian-trained medical doctor, (Dr Okere, then a medical student), I decided to go for it.

“My journey in Russia actually started at a polytechnic university, Tomsk polytechnic university, where I studied Russian language and some science subjects also in the Russian language. Then I moved to Siberian state medical university, Tomsk (@ssmutomsk).”
