Identical twins identified as Taiye and Kehide Adegoke, reportedly bagged first class in law at the University of Ibadan. The identical twins made history, by becoming the first twins to bag first class in Law at the University of Ibadan, as announced at the University’s recent convocation.
Recall that the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ibadan Professor Idowu Olayinka recently congratulated 12 graduates of the institution, who made a first class degree in their Final Bar Examinations of the Nigerian Law School.
The VC in his Facebook post said the achievement of the students, their lecturers as well as their parents and guardian will receive a favorable mention in the Vice-Chancellor’s Address at the 2018 Convocation and 70th Founders’ Day on Saturday, 17th November 2018.
The 12 students are Joseph Ogunmodede, Afam Ikeakanam, Emeka Ezekwesiri, Yetunde Oyeyipo, Tosin Omobitan, Tosin Ogunbona, Olo Egbokhare, Feyikemi Fatumbi, Zacheaus Akanni, Daphne Ekpe, Seyi Adebimpe-Ojo and Dada Mobolaji Esther.
Olayinka said the first five law graduates on the list were awarded First Class Honours by the University of Ibadan; the other seven equally outstanding graduates on this roll of honors finished with Upper Second Class at Ibadan.
The VC also said he was excited and delighted when it was brought to his notice that one of the UI students who barely managed to get Second Class Upper in UI, with a CGPA of 4.6 out of a maximum of 7.0 earned First Class at the Law school.
