JAMB: UTME Candidate Defies Expectations In Mathematics

Master Lotanna Azuokeke, a candidate of the recently concluded Unified Tertiary Matriculation (UTME) scored 99 marks in the Mathematics section of the examination.

15-year-old Azuokeke is a native of Ọba in Idemmili South LGA of Anambra State and a student of Bishop Otubelu Juniorate, Trans Ekulu, Enugu.

According to a statement by Dr Chiwuike Uba, the Media Adviser to the Bishop of the Diocese of Nike (Anglican Communion), the Founder of the school, the candidate scored 88 marks in chemistry, 86 in physics, and 64 in the English Language.

“Azụokeke broke a record set by Chidera Obi who scored 329 marks to emerge overall best, five years ago.

“Report shows that Azuokeke applied to study electrical/electronic engineering at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN),” the statement read.

Uba noted that the school was established on October 6, 2008, and started with 24 students but now boasts of 411 students.

He added that the school was built to contribute to improved education standards.

“The school recorded 100 per cent success in the last Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE); three students came out with 11As each.


“We are proud of the success we have attained so far. Our JAMB results are simply wonderful, our WASSCE and NECO results are not bad also,” he said.
