Edo Offers LASU Record-Breaking Graduate Automatic Employment.

The Edo State government has offered automatic employment to Lagos State University (LASU) record-breaking Law graduate, Aminat Yusuf.

The state Deputy Governor, Comrade Philip Shaibu, said the offer was in line with the Godwin Obaseki administration’s policy of offering automatic employment to Edo indigenes who graduate with First Class in any university.

Aminat is an indigene of Agenebode in Etsako East Local Government Area of the state.

The academic genius emerged the best-ever graduate of LASU with a 5.0 Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) in the institution’s faculty of law.

Shaibu, while receiving the genius, who was accompanied by his father, Ibrahim Yusuf of The Nation newspaper; his wife, Hajia Halimat Yusuf and a top official of LASU, Abibu Obadan, said he was proud of the spectacular performance of the Law graduate for breaking the 40-year-record of LASU.

The Deputy Governor, who also presented commendation letter to Yusuf, noted that despite the outstanding Law graduate’s humble background, she beat all odds to earn a First-Class grade.

He said: “By virtue of Aminat Yusuf’s outstanding performance, she has exemplified the ‘I can do’ spirit of the resourceful Edo man and woman, the attitude that a son or daughter of a nobody can become someone.

“The accolades she has received since the news broke have been a source of inspiration, not only to her family, but the good people of Etsako East Local Government and indeed, Edo State. We are proud of her.

“The current administration, under the leadership of my elder brother, Governor Godwin Nogheghase Obaseki, will continue to place high priority on quality and affordable education.

“On behalf of the governor, government and the good people of Edo State, I want to congratulate Miss Aminat Yusuf, for distinguishing herself in her academic pursuit and becoming ambassador of our beloved Edo State. She has endeared herself as a role model for young girls and women in Edo State and Nigeria at large.”

The outstanding graduate’s father attributed his daughter’s excellent performance to right mentoring by lecturers, hard work and God’s guidance.

Aminat, whose father is a business correspondent with The Nation and mother, a business woman, expressed appreciation to her parents for motivating and inspiring her to achieve the feat.
