A Nigerian teenager, Ikechukwu Nwachukwu Dikko, is another person that has made the nation proud in his academic endeavor abroad.
Popularly called a professor at home and school because of the brilliance he shows in his actions and manner of talking, he is a student of Notre Dame High School in Connecticut, The Nation reports.
The intelligent teenager has been winning awards in his elite school and in the White House, the latest being The Presidential Award For Elite Scholarship in America and the Connecticut Seal of Biliteracy.
ORIENTAL TIMES understands that the presidential award is given to young students who have demonstrated outstanding academic brilliance while the seal is awarded to students of Notre Dame who are skilled in at least eight different foreign languages.
The Nigerian genius can speak 10 languages which are Igbo, English, French, Italian, Spanish, Korean, Chinese, Russian, Dutch, and German.
Another thing worthy of note is that Ikechukwu’s father once wanted to be the governor of Connecticut on the platform of React Party.
In a letter personally signed by President Donald Trump, Ikechukwu was described as a brilliant academic student who is well-positioned to achieve great things in life.
Notre Dame in reacting to the awards said that it is not in any way surprised by the academic brilliance of Ikechechukwu.
In a brief interview with The Nation, Ikechukwu said the awards have stirred in him to “keep striving for greater success”. His ambition is to one day become the head of the Central Intelligence Agency.
