The overall best student of the Lagos State University (LASU), Ola Gbadamosi Ridwan Oladotun, has announced the dedication of his award to his late mother, Aishat Adejoke-Ola-Gbadamosi who died when he was 12 years old.
Ola-Gbadamosi graduated from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of LASU with a CPGA of 4.88 at the 23rd convocation ceremony for the 2018/2019 academic session of the university.
“My mum died when I was twelve years old. This was a bitter experience for me during my matriculation as a result of which I resolved to honour her with good grades,” Ola-Gbadamosi stated.
In his valedictory speech, Ola-Gbadamos said, “I congratulate all graduating students for a job well done. Four, five or six years ago, we were admitted into this great citadel of learning, charged with the task to embark on a journey towards acquiring fundamental knowledge and skills in our various areas of interest, and today, the feat we have achieved and academic heights attained are noteworthy.”
“I found for myself, an academic niche in my area of strength and interest. Hence, I decided to study Mechanical Engineering where my interest was and in God’s guidance, this is how far my interest has brought me,” he added.
