Mother Of One Breaks 44-Year Record At UNICAL To Bag First Class

A lady, Colette Offiong Bassey, has smashed a 44-year record of the Department of Linguistics and Communication Studies at the University of Calabar (UNICAL).

Bassey graduated with a first-class degree in her department, breaking a record set in the department in 1977.

Her feat, according to a release by the university she shared on her Instagram, breaks a record that had stood since 1977.

Collette, who was heavily pregnant at the time she wrote her exams expressed her utmost gratitude to God and her ever-supportive husband.

Here is what she wrote.

My testimony is on the next slide

To God be the glory!
I remember finishing exams on a certain Wednesday and giving birth that Saturday. It was one hell of a ride but it ended in praise.

After God, my gratitude goes to my husband who Pushed me hard and gave me great support. I have a great support system, the rest of family included.
Thank you

Thank You everyone. I’m super thankful for the show of love.

It’s never too late to achieve excellence, you just have to start. Take the step, whatever it is.

The journey to greatness goes on.

My name is Colette Offiong Bassey, First Class honors degree holder

To God be the glory!
