Oluebube Miracle Alphonsus Okoye emerged as the 2020/2021 overall best graduating student from the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka (UNIZIK) with a CGPA of 4.87.
Okoye was the cynosure of all eyes amongst 118 graduands at the oath-taking/induction ceremony organised by the institution in collaboration with the Pharmacists’ Council of Nigeria (PCN) which was held at the JUHEL auditorium, Agulu campus of the University recently.
Where he came from
Okoye who hails from Ekwulobia town in Aguata local government area of Anambra state had graduated from the Medical school, College of Health Sciences, Okofia, Nnewi campus of Nnamdi Azikiwe University in 2014. But unlike many who would be fulfilled to have attained such envious professional height, he went on to obtain a Direct Entry form to study Pharmacy.
The 31-year-old Dr Pharm Okoye revealed that his success in life stems from his resilience and resolve to distinguish himself among his contemporaries.
“The drive was as a result of a need to distinguish me, to be unique, carve a niche for myself, go through unfamiliar terrain. I just love excellence. It took a lot of discipline, a focused mind, and sheer commitment to achieving the goals I set for myself.”
