Members of the House of Representatives will honour Mr. Ayodele Dada, who recently graduated from the University of Lagos (UNILAG) with a Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of 5.0.
The feat by the Psychology graduate is the first in the history of the university.
In a letter addressed to each member of the House ahead of today's sitting titled "NEW ACADEMIC RECORD BY AYODELE DANIEL DADA" by the Majority Leader, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, the lawmakers were enjoined to admit Dada into the Green Chamber in order to celebrate his rare feat.
"In the last two weeks Nigeria and Nigerians have been inundated with news of the incredible performance of Mr Ayodele Dada a student of the Department of Psychology, Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Lagos who set a new academic record by graduating with a 5.0 Cumulative Grade Point Average. The first time ever in the University’s and perhaps Nigeria’s history.
"I believe as leaders and as a country its time we start celebrating our successes particularly in a period of great national despondency that has enveloped us for years now. As a House I believe we should recognize, celebrate and commend Mr Ayodele so as to encourage him and give hope and inspiration to many others.
"To this end, I wish for you to join me as we suspend the House rules to invite Mr. Ayodele Dada to the floor of the House on Tuesday 22nd March to honour the young man and his remarkable achievement. His story is compelling and inspirational to the youth and he represents and mirrors the hope of our tomorrow," Gbajabiamila said.
