Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has rewarded the Lagos State University (LASU) record-breaking graduating Law student, Aminat Yusuf with a sum of N10 million.
Sanwo-Olu rewarded Yusuf who obtained a CGPA of 5.0 with the money on Thursday at the 26th convocation ceremony of the institution at the Ojo-Iyana Iba area of Lagos State.
The governor announced a personal donation of N5 million and another N5 million from the Lagos State government for Yusuf who broke a 40-year-old record at LASU.
A student of the Faculty of Law in LASU, Yusuf emerged the best graduating student for the 2021/2022 academic session with a Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of 5.0.
Her feat has not gone unnoticed as a Lagos monarch, the Oniba of Iba Kingdom, Oba Sulaimon Adeshina Raji gave her N2 million and promised her full sponsorship through Law School.
The Vice Chancellor of LASU, Prof. Ibiyemi Olatunji-Bello, had said last week that Yusuf will be rewarded with N500,000 cash prize.
Mrs Olatunji-Bello noted that the university would graduate 10,183, of which 282 students obtained First Class in different fields.
She explained that while Ms Yusuf tops the first-class graduates for the 2021/2022 academic session, Feyisayo Lopez from the Department of Physiology, College of Medicine emerged as the best for the 2020/2021 session with a 4.91 CGPA.
