Ayodele Daniel Dada, the University of Lagos graduate who broke records by scoring a perfect CGPA of 5.0 has revealed that he did not have a girlfriend while in school.
In his valedictory speech, Dada said :â€œI have fond memories. I was the head of my final year planning committee for dinners, symposium, and was involved in a lot of other things. But I didnâ€™t have a girlfriend.â€
He said being the best was not only about reading books, but having a balanced life and surmounting impossibilities.
â€œI was a social person throughout school. I attended birthday parties, cinemas, I had so many movies on my laptop and I was sharing them with my colleagues, as I was sharing notes as well.
â€œI had close friends but I did not want to have to deal with a lot of things at the same time. I was working and schooling. You donâ€™t have to be a genius to get the results of a genius. Just target excellence always. The nation needs us. We must readily take direction for our lives.â€
