Accomplishing a refinement in Medicine appeared an outlandish undertaking yet the curse has been broken at the Olabisi Onabanjo University.
At the school's 25/26 joined assembly which finished on Tuesday, Olugbenga Alabi turned into the main graduant to accomplish the deed in the establishment's history. Alabi had seven qualifications in 10 courses.
"I'm happy I accomplished the deed of being the first to graduate with MBChB with Honors ever," Alabi energetically told our correspondent.
"I first read about the necessities (for making qualification) amid my 100-Level days, and I felt it was unrealistic to get it. In any case, now, that is history since somebody has done it. I give Allah all the radiance and in addition my instructors and coaches," he said.
Also, as Alabi stood tall on the platform to address his partners, he said getting to the apex of a man's goal is considerably dictated by God and not by human's endeavors.
"As I remain before every one of you today, what has put me on the platform to present this valedictory discourse for the benefit of my partners might be a result of my exceptional scholarly execution. Be that as it may, I don't see it that way; rather, I consider it to be God's support and gift, for I don't know anything with the exception of that which God has shown me. He is the Omniscient," he said in the midst of energizing applause.
"Just God stipends achievement," he proceeded with, "it is vital we read notwithstanding supplicating. Likewise imperative is conferring information unto others. Know when you absorb the most and make the best utilization of that time."
Is it accurate to say that he was a savant or a loner to have made seven refinements?
Alabi denied being a thoughtful person. As indicated by him, he kept up an unobtrusive social life. In any case, he attempted however much as could reasonably be expected to keep up his limits. He had somebody near his heart, to keep others under control.
"Concerning lady friends, I have numerous. In any case, my life partner is only one (chuckles). She has truly striven for me in such a variety of areas,"Alabi admitted.
After his auxiliary instruction, Alabi had jumbled some tertiary organizations. He once went to Yaba College of Technology where he considered Science Laboratory Technology. He completed his National Diploma with a refinement. From there on, he had a spell at the University of Ibadan before destiny at last delegated his endeavors at OOU.
Presently in his late 20s, Alabi said he would not hold up to finish his entry level position before thinking about a postgraduate program to seek after in clinicals and scholastics.
