The Batterjee Medical College, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, on May 5, 2018, honoured a female Nigerian student, Ummukhulthum Abubakar Sadiq, as one of its best graduating students.
Sadiq was conferred with Bachelor’s in Medicine and Surgery (MBBS) and given a prize as one of the best graduating students, Daily Trust reports.
Her father, Senator Abubakar Sadiq Yar’adua, said Ummukhulthum completed the recitation of the Holy Qur’an in 2005 at the age of 10 and memorized it in four years between 2014 and 2018.
Recall that in February Christianah Udoh emerged the first Nigerian to win the Dudley Newitt Prize for Experimental Excellence award at the Imperial College in London.
Udoh, who is reportedly a daughter of a party chieftain in Akwa Ibom State was awarded on Monday, February 26, 2018, during the Dudley Newitt Lecture held on the university campus.
