When he was asked about the secret behind his feat, he said that it was a result of determination, hardworking, and prayer.
“I don’t have a specific reading period, but I must read every day; I must understand whatsoever am reading rather than to cram,” he noted.
He continued that his first-class journey was ignited when he clinches 4.41 of 5.0 in his first year; 4.5 in the second year; 5.0 in his third year before he eventually graduated with 4.71.”
“UG 3 was my best year on campus because I have the best result I have been craving for; it was also my tough year due to the unionism and course representative duties. It was in the UG 3 I became the SUG Welfare Director, Chairman of UDUS hall governors, Chairman of Botanical Students Association of Nigeria (BOSAN), and Academic Director of Yauri local government,” he disclosed.
AbdulQahhar, however, indicated that he received three best graduating student awards from three different associations which include the Botanical Students’ Association of Nigeria (BOSAN), Biological Science Students’ Association (BIOSSA), and Kebbi State Students’ Association (KESSA).
