A young Nigerian has made the country proud after he was made the youngest lecturer in a prestigious university in the United Kingdom.
A 29-year-old Nigerian, Dr. Salihu Dasuki, has entered the history books as the youngest senior lecturer at the prestigious Sheffield Hallam University in the United Kingdom.
The young and brilliant Dr. Dasuki who holds a Ph.D. in Information Systems, announced his appointment as a senior lecturer in Computing on Twitter and many Nigerians have been congratulating him and tasking other Nigerians to emulate him instead of engaging in crimes in the UK.
Dr. Dasuki whose profile on his Twitter handle reads 'Lecturer in Information Systems and Nigerian fanatic', also tweeted that before his current appointment, he was an assistant professor in Nigeria for five years before the elevation.
This is the tweet that has got Nigerians swelling with pride:
"By Allah's grace, not only am I the youngest, I resume teaching as a senior lecturer of computing at Sheffield Hallam University, UK.
I have been an assistant professor in Nigeria for 5 years before the elevation..since when I was 24."
This is the kind of good news Nigerians want to hear instead of reading about how Yahoo Boys and Credit Card scammers have been denting the image of the nation all over Europe.
Congratulations, Dr. Dasuki.
