Oluchi Anthonia Umeaso has elevated the reputation of Tansian University by graduating from the Department of Microbiology with an impressive final grade point of 4.96 on a 5-point scale. The University announced this achievement in a press release on Tuesday.

The statement noted that with her outstanding grade point, Oluchi became the best graduating student during the 7th to 12th Convocation Ceremony held at the Umunya Campus of the University in Anambra State. In his speech, the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Eugene Nwadialor, congratulated Oluchi on her remarkable accomplishment. He expressed his joy that a student achieved such a feat during his tenure and highlighted that Nigerian universities rarely see such high grades.

Senator Dr. Victor Umeh, the Chancellor of the University, remarked that Oluchi’s dedication and hard work were key to her success. He urged her to continue being a proud ambassador of the institution.

Associate Professor Nnamdi Umeoduagu, Head of the Department of Microbiology, shared his happiness that his department produced the best graduating student. He encouraged current students to emulate Oluchi’s dedication and commitment. In her valedictory speech, Oluchi advised Nigerian youths not to be misled by those who claim that education is unimportant.

“Education is an essential ladder to greater heights,” she said. Oluchi expressed gratitude to her parents for their support and to the management and staff of Tansian University for providing a conducive environment for learning. She also thanked her lecturers for their guidance.

During the convocation, two honorary doctorate recipients, Chief Emmanuel ‘Bishop’ Okonkwo and Sir Kingsley Udechukwu, generously rewarded Oluchi. Sir Udechukwu presented her with a cheque for One million Naira (N1,000,000), while Chief Okonkwo awarded her a scholarship for a Master’s Degree at a university of her choice in the U.K., Canada, or the U.S.A.
