Someone just compiled a list of the 6 youngest PhD holders in Nigeria. The oldest among them is 26:
1. Dr. Olabisi Adeyemi, 26
This young intellectual earned her PhD in Botany from the University of Lagos. Though she had maintained a track record of academic success right from her secondary school, she acknowledged that having a PhD at her age, and the record of being the best graduating PhD student, did not come easy.
Born in Lagos Island local government of Lagos state, Dr. Adeyemi attended Girls’ Academy, Lagos Island where she was the best student in WAEC, with seven distinctions. She proceeded to University of Lagos and graduated with a first class degree in botany in 2006. She completed her PhD in record time in 2012.
