JAMB 2023: 15-Year-Old Scores Record-Breaking 337 in UTME – Awarded Full Scholarship by Varsity VC

JAMB 2023: 15-Year-Old Scores Record-Breaking 337 in UTME – Awarded Full Scholarship by Varsity VC

The Vice Chancellor of Godfrey Okoye University (GOU), Enugu, Rev. Fr. Christian Anieke, has announced that he is offering a full scholarship to the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) overall best student in the 2023 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME). The scholarship will enable the student to study in the Godfrey Okoye College of Medicine. Anieke made the announcement during the presentation of a car to the first male student to be appointed “Vice Chancellor For One Day” at the university.

Lotanna Azuokeke, a 15-year-old boy from Oba in Idemmili South Local Government Area of Anambra State, scored 337 marks in the JAMB examination, setting a new record. He scored 64 in English, 99 in Mathematics, 86 in Physics, and 88 in Chemistry. Azuokeke is a student of Bishop Otubelu Juniorate, Trans Ekulu, Enugu.

Vitalis Iloanuwusi, a 400L student of the university, emerged as the overall best student with a Cumulative Grade Point of 5.0 in two semesters, for which he was made GUO VC for one day, and he was the first male student to win the position.

Anieke explained that he is offering the scholarship to Azuokeke in line with his passion for education and his desire to empower young people and make them extraordinary. He believes that the youths need a system that can crush them, stressing that they can do a lot and compete with their colleagues globally if supported.

The Vice Chancellor stated that the university adopted the VC for one day programme to motivate students, adding that when challenged, students would do well for themselves. He stressed that those who had emerged as students for one day were currently doing extremely well in life, indicating that the programme was good.

The donor of the car gift, Mr Alphonsus Nwafor, charged students to have a specific objective on why they are in school. He explained that Iloanuwusi had a vision that led him to break the record, and when he discovered that only females were emerging as VC for one day in the school, he threw a challenge to the boys, which saw Iloanuwusi becoming the first male student to win the position. The success gift will be extended to female students who emerge in the position as a way of balancing it, and the car gift cost him N3.9 million.

Iloanuwusi, who was in tears of joy, said he was able to achieve the feat through hard work and patience, and the donor had inspired him with the car. He commended the donor and the VC and said he was proud of GOU.
