Ekiti State governor, Ayo Fayose has rewarded a 20-year-old female graduate of Afe Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti (ABUAD) with N1 million and an employment offer for emerging the best graduating student of the 334 students at the 2014 convocation of the university.

Oluwatosin Ogunbusola who studied Economics, is the lucky lady, according to Nollywood Magazine.
Reports state that Ogunbusola “led the pack of 46 other First Class graduates; 158 Second Class (Upper Division), 115 Second Class (Lower Division) and 14 Third Class graduates.”
Speaking on her academic accomplishments and Fayose’s gift, the young graduate says that she sacrificed “social life, sleep time, and gist time,” and that she is extremely grateful to the governor for his kind gesture.

    In my own view,the money given to her is not needed,We have other people who graduated from state or federal university with better grades that really deserves this money and the job offer…Do you know how much they pay at Afe Babalola University? This money should have been given to smone who truly deserves it.

      Your comment really does mesmerize me. You have shown a very high level of ineptitude and lack of depth in understanding what it means to stoop to conquer. What grade is better than a first-class? I believe you are the one who truly deserves the money. Sour Pus!!

    Commendable effort.

    Find it interesting that she is given N1m ad s reward for graduating as best student, yet synagogue feels N750k is enough compensation for loss of breadwinners of families lost in the building collapse. Naija I hail thee

      Tman, don’t go there. Lets face it, as the word implies it is a compensation. No amount of money can bring the victims back. Though your point isn’t lost on me, but in Naija wetin else fit happen?

      Very salient point. No amount of money can measure up to emotional pain.

    Congratulations are in order. My only concern is that the award was given to the graduate of a private university. I have no problem with Fayose spending his own private funds to reward students this; but it could be unfair if it was government-funded and not equally available to graduates of the state and federal universities as Temi mentioned earlier. Underprivileged graduates need even more encouragement.

    Mtchewwwwww…… beef for the brilliant girl bt excuse me a million niara! What for? Does that compensate for her Labour? What happens to the youngest PHD graduate? This is waste of money. Anyway its allowed in a country like Nigeria definitely not where I came from.

    You are such dedicated child that did not forget the daughter of whom you. You are able to get GP of over 5.0 I give it to you.Governor Ago Fayose you are a great politician and I know God will help you to still go higher than your present position. You were there for us when we were having the problem of light and water in our school then The Federal polytechnic Ado Ekiti. You were no body then yet you help us out so I’m not surprised if you are encouraging the girl that made your State proud.
