A lady, identified as Colette Offiong Bassey, has made history in the prestigious University of Calabar (UNICAL) as she breaks a 44 year old record in the department of Linguistics and Communication Studies.
The mother of one, who was heavily pregnant during her final exams, defied all odds and graduated with a first class degree in her department.
Collette took to her IG page to announce her academic prowess and expressed her utmost gratitude to God and her ever-supportive husband.
Sharing photos of herself in her convocation gown and an official statement from the university, she wrote,
“My testimony is on the next slide 👉🏽
