If feelers coming from the prestigious University of Lagos are anything to go by, a former medical student of the University of Ilorin, Ismaila Mansur, has emerged the 2015/2016 best graduating student of Mass Communication of the “University of First Choice”.
Investigation by The Renaissance revealed that the 2015/16 final result as approved by the Senate of the institution and released on Thursday, revealed that Mansur, a famously social media enthusiast, finished with a CGPA of 4.59 points.
All efforts to speak with the scholar proved abortive as at the time of filing this report.
Likewise, there is no official release yet from the University.
However, sources who spoke with our correspondent under the condition of anonymity said the formal announcement will be made at the January 24/25, 2017 convocation ceremonies of the University.
“This is according to the University calendar as approved by Senate”, the source said.
