Nigerian student Ufot Ekong breaks 50-year GPA record in Japanese University; ...graduates with First Class and Best Overall Student

A Nigerian student has broken a 50-yr record in Japan after graduating with 1st class degree and best overall student from Tokai University in Tokyo Japan.

The last time anyone graduated with  a similar Grade Points Average (GPA) was 50years ago. Mr. Ufot Ekong, a multi-talented Nigerian youth, has artistry in music, specialising in Saxophone. He distinguished himself from the outset in the school when he won the Japanese language best student award.


The self-sponsored student, who combined two jobs with studies, won many other awards in the University, altogether numbering about six.

Ufot Ekong from Akwa Ibom State was the best overall student, and the first Nigerian to achieve this feat since 1965, solving a mathematical equation that could not be solved 30-yrs ago in his first semester.

Ekong won a Japanese language award for foreigners, in addition to two patents under his name for developing an electric car.

Ufot Ekong is currently working with Nissan.
