A 21-year-old Nigerian lady identified as Ewerechukwu Favour Asaka has emerged as the best graduating student of Covenant University.
In a video shared on YouTube, Covenant University had its 16th convocation ceremony, on Friday, October 22, in which 216 students bagged first class degrees
Ewerechukwu, who bagged a degree in Computer Science, was the valedictorian of the 2020/2021 academic session.
The school’s Chancellor, Dr. David Oyedepo, told the graduands of the institution not to think about self but value addition, job creation, and other virtues that will bring solutions to societal problems.
In her words:
“My goal is to become a Product Manager focusing on products that’ll better the lives of African women. I am passionate about product development and client services.
Being a Product Manager would enable me to work in a field that perfectly merges business, design, and engineering with problem-solving and innovation at the centre of it.”
The young lady is the second student to graduate with a perfect CGPA of 5.0 after Motunrayo Ajia, who finished from the Department of Petroleum Engineering in the 2018/2019 academic session.
Ewerechukwu and Motunrayo have one thing in common: both made their academic feats at the age of 21.
