Obakpolor who graduated with a First Class from the Department of Physics with a 4.8GPA said the grace of God also enabled him to attain the feat.
He said “at first I never thought I could achieve this, but I told myself let me just try to put in effort to get a good result. I recorded 4.68 GPA in my 100 level first semester and I determined to build it up.
God helped me and I am grateful to Him. I strongly believe in possibility and I make bold to say making a First Class in any discipline is not impossible with God on one’s side and persistent reading habit”.
He commended the contributions of his teachers to his success, saying “FUTA is blessed with good lecturers. They taught us well and built us for the future. Anything I become today is by the training I received from my lecturers.
I also commend my friends and course mates who gave me access to materials related to my field”. Speaking on his plans after graduation, he said he wants to go into research activities, to make innovative discoveries in Physics which he called the bedrock of Science.
He said such discoveries can be built up on for the good of the society. Counselling other youth, he said “God has deposited in everyone exceptional ability to excel in everything one is doing. One just need to put in a little effort, crown it with hard work and prayers”.
Obakpolor also commended the standard of FUTA. He said “I believe FUTA is going places. I appreciate the way the Institution is building up youth for the future. This gives us the confidence that wherever we find ourselves we will be able to adapt easily to situations.
FUTA always give us the platform to express our ability and stand out wherever we find ourselves”. He also thanked his parents and siblings for their support towards his study.
