Jomiloju-300x187He’s a Nigerian. And he’s only 9-years-old.

Jomiloju Tunde-Oladipo recently became one of the world’s youngest certified Microsoft Office Specialists for Office Word 2010, the Nigerian Tribune reports.

Jomiloju, a primary student at Role Model School in Lagos, broke the record of a fellow Nigerian student Seyi-Ojo Anjolaoluwa who became a Microsoft certified professional at the age of 10. The young boy took the examination in his 5th year of primary school after receiving intensive trainings in school and passing all the preparatory stages for the test. Odio Oyakhire, the center manager in charge of the boy’s school, said that his firm “encourages pupils to learn ICT and get certified.”

Jomiloju scored 769 points on the exam — 69 points above the required score needed to receive certification as a Microsoft Office Specialist.

But this isn’t Jomiloju’s first tech achievement. He helped his school beat out 15 other schools in an ICT quiz competition in June.
