5 Africans under 26 to achieve a doctorate degree

Maths genius Olaoluwa Hallowed Oluwadara

Olaoluwa Hallowed Oluwadara

He became a doctor of Mathematics at the age of 24, with a Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of 5. The Ekiti State indigene born in Bangui, Central African Republic (CAR) graduated from the University of Lagos as the Best Graduating PhD holder. He has two first degrees in mathematics and physics which he pursued simultaneously. He also has master’s degree in the same courses, which he run concurrently.

The interesting fact about Oluwadara is that he was born and bred in a French-speaking country but he still managed to do well in academics in the English language. When asked how he achieved the feat, Oluwadara said even though he was studying French in school, he spoke English at home, so the transition from French to English was smooth.
