Ayodele Dada, the 29-year-old Psychology graduate from the University of Lagos, who set a national record with his 5.0 CGPA, was yesterday honoured by the Nigerian House of Representatives. The House usually doesn’t admit anyone into its chambers except visiting presidents, parliamentarians or other dignitaries but it suspended its rules and awarded Dada the rare privilege of admittance to its plenary session.

While at the house, members gave him a standing ovation for his record breaking academic feat.
