Miss Ikanna Okim, daughter of Publisher/Editor-in-Chief, The Frontier online newspaper, Amb. Sunny Okim, has come out tops after completion of her one year legal studies at the Nigerian Law School.
The 24-year-old law graduate made it again after breaking a 36-year jinx last year at the University of Uyo, a federal university, when she bagged First Class from the university’s Law Faculty. She was thus the very first to achieve that after 36 years of establishment of the Faculty.
In appreciating her uncommon feat of putting her home state in the country’s education history, Commissioner for Information, Akwa Ibom State, Comrade Ini Ememobong had granted a scholarship of Three Hundred Thousand Naira (N300,000) to cover the young Law graduate’s tution fee at the Nigerian Law School 2021/2022 session.
Speaking to our correspondent in Lagos, elated father of the outstanding Law graduate said, “I am very happy that God has done it again. My daughter has made the family, her university, Akwa Ibom State and our entire well wishers proud. Her double First Class is quite uncommon, and we give all the glory to God.”
Asked what the next line of action is concerning his young daughter with brains and beauty, the astute journalist said, “Well, as children of God we believe that whatever the future holds is in God’s hands and I believe the sky is her limit.”
The Frontier reports that the 2022 Nigerian Law School graduates will be called to the Bar by the Council of Legal Education in the first week of next month (December) in Abuja.
