A Nigerian Genius Breaks A 50-Year Old Academic Record In Japan

Ufot Ekong is a 24-year-old Nigerian student who recently graduated with a first class degree in electrical engineering from the prestigious Tokai University in Tokyo, Japan. During his time at Tokai University, the Nigerian student won six awards for academic excellence, solved a mathematical equation that was unsolvable for 30 years, but most importantly, earned the highest grade point average given at a Japanese university since 1965!

A multitalented young man

Ekong accomplished all these achievements while working two jobs to pay his tuition fees. The young mathematician from Lagos speaks four languages: English, French, Yoruba and Japanese. During his free time, he plays the saxophone and manages a clothing store.
