Nemtari: Nigerian genius makes an outstanding mark in the UK
As Nigeria battles against the twin problems of declining standards in the education sector and youth unemployment, several of its citizens studying abroad have shown exceptional brilliance in their various fields of study, and have gone ahead on graduation to get equally outstanding jobs and positions.
Reports say that out of that pool is Nemitari Ajienka, who has made laudable achievements in the academic world.
Nemtari Ajienka, who hails from Port Harcourt, Rivers state, made distinctions in his BSc, MSc, and PhD. He achieved all that before he attained the youthful age of 25.
The latest achievement the genius got is his appointment as a senior lecturer in computer science at Nottingham Trent University, UK. He thus becomes the youngest lecturer with that honour in the school.
It will be recalled that the genius had earlier become the youngest lecturer at Edge Hill University, United Kingdom (UK).
The young man who came from Port Harcourt made the announcement of his initial appointment at the institution took via his Twitter handle on November 20, 2017.
He did not just stop there but took out time to especially thank his lecturer Dr Andrea Capiluppi, for his love and support.
Also, Anne-Marie Imafidon, is one of the few geniuses Nigeria is blessed with.
Born in 1990, she passed her A-level in computing at the age of 11, and became the youngest girl to ever achieve that feat.
At the age of 15, she got in for a degree programme at the University of Oxford.
Imafidon currently speaks six languages. At 20, she obtained her master’s degree in mathematics and computer science from the University of Oxford.
Ann-Marie’s father, Chris Imafidon, is from Edo state. He is an ophthalmologist.
Several years after, she worked in popular companies like HP, Deutsche Bank and Goldman Sachs, adding more colours to her already-amazing CV.
She had honorary doctorates from institutions like Kent University, Open University, Glasgow Caledonian University, and Bristol University, and a fellowship programme at Keble College, Oxford.
