Two Nigerian students, Peter Hunnoho Moses and Odinaka Abel Favour have won the top prizes during the 9th Graduation Congregation of the Accra Institute of Technology (AIT), Ghana.
According to a statement released by the University, Peter, who graduated with a First Class Honours Bachelor of Science Degree in Information Technology was judged the overall best student of the graduation class with a cumulative GPA of 3.99.
Odinaka was also honoured as the overall best student in the Female category. She graduated with a First Class Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration with a cumulative GPA of 3.90.
Professor Clement Dzidonu, the President of the University observed that this is a major achievement given that, AIT has the toughest and the highest grading system within the university system in Ghana.
“To get an A grade in a subject at AIT you must score above 90 and to get a First Class with a cumulative GPA close to the maximum 4.2, means that a student must consistently get A grades across the board’, Professor Dzidonu noted.
The Deputy Minister for Education, responsible for Tertiary Education, Hon. Samuel Okudjeto Ablakwa congratulated those receiving the overall best graduating student awards and noted that, Ghana is currently attracting over seven thousand foreign students from close to sixty countries to its private and public universities annually.
