History: Since 1962, meet the Only Man who graduated with 5.0 CGPA on a scale of 5.0 in O.A.U

Obafemi Awolowo University unlike many other Universities in Nigeria has only produced one graduating student ever since it was established in 1962 to graduate with a 5.0 CGPA max. This is because of the strict grading system which makes it incredibly difficult and almost impossible for any students to graduate with a 5.0 Cumulative Grade Points Average, CGPA. Many Students still try as much as they could to graduate with a First Class but since the establishment of the institution; only one person has ever made the history of 5.0 CGPA.

The name of this man is Professor Anthony Adegbulugbe. Professor Anthony Adegbulugbe was the first person and the only person to break the record of graduating with a 5.0 CGPA on a scale of 5.0 in Obafemi Awolowo Univeristy. 

Professor Anthony Adegbulugbe studied Electronics and Electrical Engineering in the Faculty of Technology in the Institution. He graduated in the year, 1976 with his all time record. After graduating from the institution in 1976, he proceeded to the Institute of Technology to obtain his DSc. in Nuclear Engineering. 

Professor Anthony Adegbulugbe has now become a professor of Energy and Management with over 40years experience in the Energy Sector. When it comes to Energy and Oil and Gas related issues, Professor Anthony Adegbulugbe has made several consultations with various bodies like; the World Bank, the UNIDO, the UNDP, the NNPC, the PHCN, the Ministry of National Planning, the ECOWAS and what have you. 

In Obafemi Awolowo University, Professor Anthony Adegbulugbe was once the Director of the Centre for Energy Research and Development. Also, he was once the Special Adviser to the President of Nigeria on Energy Matters. 

He is the lone survival of the University’s spell with the maximum CGPA ever. Although some people claim that education was quite easy during his time because students do not have to worry about the payment of School Fees or even what to eat as there was free feeding then. But, the fact still remains that the man is a genius.
