Speaking, Prof. Chris Imafidon, who chairs, The ExcellenceinEducation.org.uk program, in characteristic modesty said, "Personally I am not deserving of such a huge honour, it is my students and scholars that did all the work, therefore, I dedicate this award to them, and thank the Almighty God, my grandparents and the organizers for this day. A big shout out to the staff and management of http://www.excellenceineducation.org.uk/ program. This is more fuel for us to do more and pursue our philosophy that there is a genius in everyone. Hence my book entitled The Genius in You."
