The Registrar, Nigerian Turkish Nile University, Ismail Asan, has said 11 Nigerians bagged first class honours at the institution in the 2015/2016 academic year.
Asan said this at the fourth convocation ceremony of the institution held recently on its campus in Abuja.
According to him, Udeme Eno-Nta, who studied Computer Science, made a CGPA of 4.91 to emerge as the NTNU best graduating student for the 2015/2016 academic year.
While Aneesa Salah of the Department of Electrical and Electronics with a CGPA of 4.87 emerged as the second-best graduating student, Olabanji Opeyemi of the Department of Computer Science came third with a CGPA of 4.83.
Asan said a total of 124 students graduated from the school in 2015/2016 academic year, out of which 68 made Second Class upper degrees, 41 had Second Class lower degrees, while five students had third Class degrees.
"The turnover of graduands from the University has justified our vision and mission statement of producing quality graduates who shall be full of knowledge, skills, and experience to contribute to technological and economic development," the Vice-Chancellor of the NTNU, Prof. Sert Husenyi, said.
The NTNU, which has received full accreditation from the Nigerian University Commission, has positioned itself as an excellent alternative to studying abroad.
"We have outstanding teaching across the board, and we also support Nigerian home values, and we encourage the elite to send their children to our school instead of abroad where they come back with strange ways," Prof. Husenyi added.
