Prof. Itse Sagay
I am certain that you know Professor Itsejuwa Sagay. You probably know him as a distinguished Professor of Law, a respected Senior Advocate of Nigeria, former Dean of Law of Universities of Ife and Benin, author of landmark legal texts and of course, as the Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee on Anti-Corruption.

But did you know that Professor Itse Sagay made history in 1965 when he graduated from the University of Ife? He passed in the Second Class [Upper Division] and thus became the first Nigerian law student graduate from any Nigerian university to achieve such a distinction. That was 53 years ago!
