A 12-year-old JSS1 student, Miss Jessica Okonye, has been granted automatic university admission into the Admiralty University of Nigeria, Ibusa, Delta state to study Auditing after showing an exceptional level of intelligence.
Jessica was found to be exceptionally brilliant by a retired American university professor, Prof. (Chief) John Alizor when they first had an encounter at an office where she served as an intern.
The professor was said to have taken a keen interest in her and started mentoring her. She was then tested with academic assignments which eventually led to her admission as a university student at the young age of 12.
Before she was offered admission, Jessica also interacted with the leadership of the university who found her academic abilities to be satisfactory.
