Abiodun provides N1 million, employment to OOU’s best graduating students


- Advertisment -

Governor of Ogun state, Dapo Abiodun, has offered Awolumate Adebisi and Iloka Peter, the overall best graduating students of the Olabisi Onabanjo University (OOU) in Ago-Iwoye, automatic employment.

In a social media post on Monday, the governor also announced that he will be giving the duo a cash prize of one million naira each.

The governor, who attended the varsity’s 30th and 31st convocation ceremony earlier in the day, promised to build a 1600-bed hostel for the students of the institution.

According to him, the initiative is aimed at improving the institution’s infrastructure and providing better conditions for the students.

“I made an offer of employment to the overall best graduating students: Miss Awolumate Adebisi and Mr Iloka Peter, at the 30th and 31st Convocation Ceremony of the Olabisi Onabanjo University, OOU, Ago-Iwoye held this morning,” he wrote.

“The graduands were further encouraged with a cash prize of 1 million Naira each, as we will be constructing a 1600-bed hostel in a bid to provide more infrastructure for better conditions.”

This is not the first time the governor would be celebrating students from the state who excelled in their studies.

Last year, Abiodun gifted a house and the sum of N5 million to Joy Adesina, the best graduating medical student at the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU).
