Ikenna Uzoije: Another Cord for a Broken Record Academic Excellence and to Study for PhD without a Masters Degree.
I have been reading lately on how Nigerians in foreign schools keep finding cords for every record that people believe might not be broken. You sure need to read what was shared as explanation to the pictures above by Odinaka Linus-nwokonkwo on Facebook.
"Ikenna Uzoije God Don expose u. Pls guys, this lad graduated from Georgia Tech (among the top 5 engineering college in US) with "cum laude" . As if that was not enough, the school deemed it fit to reserve 13 seats for Ikenna Uzoije guests on his convocation. U can all see the tag in this picture. To cap it up, he was among the few to be selected to start their PhD program this August without needing to pass through an MSc program. U just have to listen to this lad to explain to u the nature of his PhD research. Mind blowing indeed. Doritians (alumni from dority international secondary school, aba) are everywhere doing magic o. I just had to say this on his behalf because he's being too modest about it. Engineer Ikenna Uzoije, I hail o. For those f us that know him too well, we call him LORD PICANON".
And another friend pointed out: "Nigerians be slaying academically abroad meanwhile in naija a lecturer has decided that a particular student will not pass his course".
Big congratulation and lots of hearty cheers to him!!!
