Meet Nigeria’s Onoriode Aziza who has 3 First Class degrees from OAU, NiWith rising and varying commentary since the news broke viral prompted a response by Onoriode through his personal handle; @reginaldaziza

So two things happens everytime a post like this comes out about me: there is a lot of genuine commendation (for which I am very grateful even if I am unable to read all comments); and there is a lot of doubt and denigration (which I find quite unfortunate).

For clarity, I started in OAU at 15, spent 5 years in a law undergrad, 1 year at the law school, 1 year for NYSC; and 1 year in Cambridge. Easily sums up to 23. I have since gone on to work in London, Paris and now back to Lagos…

…amassed in excess of 25 awards in my academic and professional journey so far, set up my own scholarship fund, got shortlisted for the 40 under 40 rising stars in the legal profession award, and now pursuing a PhD simultaneously in @UniofOxford

So please relax people. There is enough space at the top for all of us. Let us keep the faith and keep the fire burning. We will all get to the top of our chosen fields of endeavour!
