24-Year-Old UNILAG Student Makes history as the youngest Ph.D holder in Africa

History was made today in Lagos as a 24-year-
old man, Olaoluwa Hallowed Oluwadara, was
today presented with the award of overall best
graduating student in the University of Lagos
postgraduate school, with a PhD in Mathematics.
The young man was all smiles as he mounted
the podium to collect his award.
The Dean of Postgraduate school, Prof. Obinna
Chukwu introduced the young man to the
amazement of all as his achievements seem
impossible for a 24-year-old. Had the Dean not
announced his age himself, many would still
doubt if Hallowed is actually 24
The new Doctor bagged a B.Sc. degree in
Mathematics in 2007, graduating with 1st Class
honours.
Oluwadara apparently ran his degree in
Mathematics the same time he was studying
Physics, as he also graduated with a 1st class
honours degree in Physics in the same year.
He added an M.Sc. in Mathematics (Pure
Option) and also Physics (Distinction) in 2008
before embarking on his doctorate journey.
UNILAG, on the second day of its convocation
ceremonies, graduated 105 Ph.D. students, one
M.Phil., 4,380 M.Sc. and 335 PGD students.
