Abuja (Precise Post) – When the Catholic Ûniversity of Nigeria, Veritas rolls out their drums to award degrees and Honours to some deserving persons on Saturday in Abuja, NSUKKA will stand taller than others. The best and second best graduating will all be Nsukka daughter and Son.

Cynthia Ifeoma Ugwuoke, who studied English and Literary studies at the prestigious , a product of St. Catherine’s Girls’ Nsukka, where she finished as the best English student in her set before proceeding to Veritas Abuja. In this year’s convocation she triples as the in her department, faculty and one of the overall best , bagging first-class honors with 4.92 CGPA.

The next best result in the whole school is also Nsukka son, a priest from Nsukka Catholic Diocese. He is Rev. Fr. Augustine Emeka Ugwumgbo, who also bags first-class honors, graduating with 4.89 CGPA. This makes him also the second from the faculty of humanities and the department of English and Literary Studies.

Another Nsukka son Petrus Ejike Eze from Ekwegbe in Igbo Etiti also emerged the in the department of with 4.32 CGPA.

The pro- of the incidentally is our own dear Chief Sherphard of Nsukka Diocese, Bishop Prof Godfrey Igwebuike Onah who had sent nine brilliant Nsukka sons and daughters on to study in the with two of them coming tops.The others sent by the Bishop who also made good grades are: Mary-Jude Ngwoke (Nru, Microbiology), Ngozi Maureen Makata – (Imilike Ani, Biochemistry), Petrus Eze (Ekwedge, ), Boniface Onoyima (Okutu, Computer Science), Agada Martha (Igogoro Enugu-Ezike, Computer Science), Precious Chifulumnanya Okodi (Aku, Microbiology).

I think it will be nice we celebrate these exceptional Nsukka Children who instead of indulging in vices decided to make us all proud. We also urge the state government to honour these brilliant persons particularly Cynthia who by this feat may deserve further studies from either the state or some well placed Nsukka persons. Nsukka deje.
