Young David Orisheneye Okorogheye, from Delta state who went viral July this year after a remarkable performance in JAMB with a score of 336 and and straight As in WAEC has been denied admission. 
His course of choice was Medicine and his university of choice was UNILAG. But the institution denied him admission on the ground of his age.

David is 15 and a candidate must be 16 years before he/she can be offered admission into UNILAG. As a result, David was not allowed to take part in the post UTME exams. He was told to try again next year when he comes of age. 
News of this angered Nigerians and there were efforts to contact relevant authorities to see if he could be considered for special admission but Sun News reports that UNILAG authorities said the law must be followed. 
David, who hopes to become a neurosurgeon, has resigned himself to fate and will try again next year to study medicine.
