20-Year-Old Student Emerges Overall Best at Baze University

At Baze University’s 10th convocation ceremony, a twenty-year-old from Ogun state was named the overall best student.

Baze University is a private academic university in Abuja that was founded in 2011.

According to NAN, Morenikeji Adebanjo, a law graduate, came out on top with a cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of 3.81 on a scale of 4.0 out of 388 undergraduate candidates.

Speaking at the college’s convocation ceremony in Abuja on Saturday, Adebanjo attributed her success to the collaborative efforts of her lecturers, families, and the institution.

While committing to be a beneficial member of society through mentorship, Adebanjo stated that this was the only way to give back to the school and society at large.

“A lot actually inspired me, first is God, second my family and this achievement is not an individual achievement but a collective achievement through Baze University,” she said.

“My lecturers also were of great help to me. Sometimes I go to meet them for extra explanation and take the time to really understand, I appreciate their efforts. It was a collective effort.

“I will try to be a helpful member of society in any way I can. I intend to help first the undergraduates, give them some advice on how to succeed as well as using law as an instrument of change.”

In addition, among 225 candidates, Oseloka Zikora, a mass communication student, received the highest overall grade point average (CGPA) of 5.0 on a scale of 5.0 in the master’s program.

Kathleen Okafor, the institution’s interim vice-chancellor, said in a speech that the university had reached a significant milestone, including increasing academic programs from 72 in 2022 to 102.

According to Okafor, it includes 43 undergraduate courses, 41 postgraduate (PGD and MSc) programs, and 18 PhD programs.
