gathered that Olalusi scored 5.0 Cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) in the university's Faculty of Clinical Sciences for seven straight years to become the best graduating student in the whole Russian Federation in 2013.

He had studied under the Russia-Nigeria Bilateral Education Agreement.

Olalusi was honored on Wednesday in Abuja at an event where he was praised by several dignitaries.

The Permanent Secretary of the ministry, Dr MacJohn Nwaobiala, called Olalusi a genius.

"It is curious and strange that all those that evaluated his performance could not find reason to reduce a point from him," Nwaobiala said.

The Permanent Secretary said Olalusi's feat should be rewarded.

“You should be the ambassador of the Federal Scholarship Board, Ministry of Education, Nigeria and the Russian Federation," he said.

“I look forward to the day you will stand before the President to receive your honor.

"We have recommendations to that effect."

The Director, Federal Scholarship Board, Ifeoma Agunwa, said Olalusi's feat is most impressive because he maintained 5.0 GPA in all the courses he took throughout his study.

“Olalusi never had a 4.99 GPA. Even in the Russian language class, he did not fall below 5.0.” she said.

Agunwa revealed that the university handed Olalusi a place in its Hall of fame for academic excellence following his feat.

Also speaking at the event, a representative of the Russian Embassy, Artem Romanov, Nigeria has a lot of human potential because Nigerians are genetically intelligent

“Nigeria is blessed with abundant human potential which is officially acknowledged in Russia," Romanov said.

“It has been acknowledged in the Russian Ministry of Education that Nigerians have a lot of exceptional talents.

"It is not easy to achieve such in Russia; it goes with talent and hard work.

He urged him to give back to Nigeria.

“I urge you to engage your knowledge in the development of your father land.’’

Olalusi's father credited his son's success to hard work, noting that he attended normal public schools in Nigeria.
