Brilliant Man becomes the first-ever Nigerian to graduate as a Doctor from Russian university after rejection in Nigeria for being a poor student, bags 100% grade point

A brilliant man has became the first-ever Nigerian to graduate as a Doctor from Russian university after being rejected in Nigeria for being a poor student.

The brilliant man identified as Justin Chukwudi Olewuezi emerged the best graduating student of department of medicine at the Siberia State Medical University, Tomsk, Russia with an exceptional 100% cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of 5.00/5.00.

Olewuezi was considered incapable to study medicine in Nigerian universities after writing the country’s university entry examination known as Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) twice, scoring 247 and 260 respectively but was denied admission due to his perceived poor performance.

He said, “I had always wanted to study abroad and obviously make something of myself back in Air Force comprehensive school, Enugu. So after failing to gain admission twice even with JAMB scores 247 and 260 respectively, I decided to study abroad.

“So after talking with a Russian-trained medical doctor, I decided to go for it (study in Russia),” he narrated.

Narrating his story on how he emerged the first Nigerian to graduate as a medical doctor the Russian institution, Olewuzi said he was able to achieve the feat because most Africans preferred to study in the west part of Russia.

“My journey in Russia actually started at a polytechnic university, Tomsk polytechnic university, where I studied Russian language and some science subjects also in the Russian language. Then I moved to Siberian state medical university, Tomsk.”

According to him, Africans and Nigerians do not normally come to Tomsk city to study rather they preferred to study in the west part of Russia.

“Yes, I am. As a matter of fact, a lot of Africans didn’t come through this city 6-10 years ago and most African/Nigerian students preferred to study in the west part of Russia,” he said.
