FLASHBACK: Bayero University Kano (BUK) has witnessed a historic achievement as a student from the Department of Sociology secured a First-Class Degree after a drought of 36 years. Sani Muhammad, a young prodigy from Borno State, not only graduated with the coveted degree but also achieved an impressive Cumulative Grade Point Aggregate of 4.65.

Born in Ibadan, Oyo State, in 1993, Muhammad hails from Hawul Local Government Area in Borno State, Nigeria. Growing up in a military environment, he attended prestigious schools such as Command Children School in Mogadishu Cantonment Asokoro, Abuja, and Army Day Junior Secondary School in Asokoro.

Muhammad's academic journey led him to the School for The Gifted in Gwagwalada, Abuja, where he graduated in 2012.

During his secondary school days, Muhammad excelled in various leadership roles and earned recognition as the best Social Science student in the 2009/2010 academic session.

Although his initial aspiration was to study Accounting or Banking and Finance, he stumbled upon Sociology through a conversation with a senior student. Intrigued by the subject, he applied and gained admission to Bayero University, Kano.

Throughout his time at BUK, Muhammad actively participated in student unionism and held positions such as Press Secretary of the Publicity Committee and Speaker of the Nigerian Sociological and Anthropological Student's Association.

Despite facing challenges and considering a departmental transfer, he persevered, with the support of his parents, lecturers, and friends.

Reflecting on his academic journey, Muhammad expressed immense joy and gratitude for the opportunity to study Sociology. He credited his success to his passion for the discipline and the encouragement he received along the way.

The achievement has instilled a sense of purpose in him, making him question what he would have done if he hadn't pursued Sociology.

In discussing the complexities of the Nigerian university system, Muhammad highlighted the need for modern teaching methods and improved infrastructure.

He acknowledged that while the system poses challenges, students also play a significant role in their own academic success by approaching their studies with dedication.

Contrary to popular belief, Muhammad emphasized the importance of leisure time during his academic pursuit. He enjoyed watching Bollywood movies and engaging in conversations with friends, which provided a necessary balance to his rigorous studies.

Looking ahead, Muhammad plans to embark on his National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) and is open to exploring opportunities that come his way.

He also aspires to pursue a master's degree, expressing gratitude for the support and well wishes he has received from his lecturers and university officials.

Muhammad has received several awards during his academic journey, including recognition as the Best Graduating Student by the Nigerian Sociological and Anthropological Students Association (NSASA) and the Faculty of Social and Management Science Students Association (FOSAMSSA).

Sani Muhammad's outstanding achievement serves as an inspiration to future students and highlights the potential for breaking long-standing records.

His determination, perseverance, and passion for Sociology have set a new standard at BUK, giving hope to aspiring scholars and reinforcing the importance of hard work and dedication in academic pursuits. Share with your friends on social media below!
