However, some social media users shared their sentiments over this issue.

Karl Imuraye stated; “Typical Nigerian thing…if it were to be abroad, this young man would have been given admission in one of the top colleges. Like Oxford or Cambridge University. During my time, a young girl aged 10 years old was admitted to read mathematics. Why can’t this brilliant young man be given admission? That is Nigeria, for you. Misplaced priority.

Uni lag..is a cabbage in cabbage out of university these days anyway.? ? it is no longer a place of learning it use to be. Professor.. two a Penney.

Sigman Bello also commented; “For genius matter, this brilliant issue those not uphold individual confidence in university he needs to be of age to withstand the university environment as simple as that”.
