Brilliant Nigerian man wins scholarship to study in both Harvard and Oxford university, lands in the US

Destiny Ogedegbe, a remarkable Nigerian, has been accepted to pursue a Master of Law degree at both the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom and Harvard University in the United States.

In addition to being accepted into extremely selective universities, Destiny received numerous scholarships to complete his Master of Law (LLM) degree. Destiny sent a message on LinkedIn expressing his happiness at being one of just four Nigerians accepted to Harvard University.

“I’m one of four (4) Nigerians admitted this year to the Harvard Law School LLM Programme — the most competitive law programme in the world — on a scholarship,” he wrote on LinkedIn.

Destiny began his post-secondary education at the University of Benin in South-South Nigeria, where he earned a distinguished first-class law degree and was named the top graduating student. He continued on to law school and received a first-class grade.

Narrating how he was able to secure Master’s admission and scholarships into the two tough universities, Destiny said; “I tell this story and add that these are the only two schools I have ever applied to for graduate studies and I got into both.”

“That it happened this way, tells me something. They both did the right thing, I suspect, because this story is already written in the stars —this is merely the mortal manifestation of God’s ideal. I have no other explanation,” he added.
