Olujimi Fafowora becomes the second Nigerian to graduate with a first-class honours degree at the University of Oxford in England.
21-year-old man graduated summa cum laude in mathematics at St. Peter’s College, Oxford.
It had earlier been reported that he was appointed a Fellow of the College and will remain at Oxford for another year pursuing his post-graduate studies.
It was gathered that he is the grandson of Ambassador and Mrs Dapo Fafowora. Amb Fafowora was a Commonwealth Scholar at Trinity College, Oxford from 1969-72.
Reacting to his grandson’s achievement, Amb Fafowora said:
“Before Oxford, he was at Haberdashers College, a private school in London from where he obtained nine distinctions on his O levels, and four A levels distinctions. We are very proud of him.”
