PHOTOS: Gov. Sanwo-Olu Hosts LASU’s Best Graduating Student with 5.0 CGPA

Aminat Yusuf, the best-graduating student at Lagos State University (LASU), paid a courtesy call to the state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

On Thursday, the governor met with the law graduate and her parents at the Lagos State Government House in Marina.

Yusuf became the first undergraduate at LASU in 40 years to achieve a cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of 5.0 in June.

Since achieving the accomplishment, the law graduate has become a viral sensation, with many Nigerians applauding her bravery.

Sanwo-Olu had previously given her N10 million during the institution’s 26th convocation and 40th anniversary.

Yusuf had also narrated how she braced the odds to achieve the feat.

The student said she was motivated to pursue a perfect CGPA as an undergraduate after getting a 4.98 CGPA during her direct entry (DE) programme at LASU.

“While I struggled financially through my education, I don’t desire such hardship for students coming behind us, especially the female students,” she had said.

“I studied really hard and prayed so fervently towards achieving excellence; I graduated from the programme (direct entry) with a CGPA of 4.98 and this was the best in my set.

“The possibility of graduating with such grade motivated the yearning to graduate with a perfect CGPA at the undergraduate level.”
