No one would ever have thought in their wildest dreams that a breath-taking record will yet be broken by Ozibo Ozibo Ekele, a 2016 graduate of the famed Ibadan School of History (Department of History), Faculty of Arts, University of Ibadan, where he topped his peers with a B.A. (First Class Honours) and a CGPA of 6.6 out of a possible 7.0. This is because the 69 year old department of history has never produced a first class graduate.
Ozibo who is also a 2013 Mass Communication graduate of the University of Nigeria Nsukka, is therefore expected to go home with several academic Prizes in the forthcoming 2017 Convocation ceremony of the University of Ibadan.
Here are the categories of prizes that would be presented to him viz;Best Graduating Student of both Faculty of Arts and Department of History; Dr. Robert Bradbury Memorial Prize; Irving and Bonar Prize; Oba Lipede Prize; CUSO Nigeria Limited Prize; J.A. Atanda Memorial Prize; and Omoyisola Atanda Memorial Prize in History.
