She however persevered and got into Bowen University, Iwo via direct entry where she has graduated in grand style.

Ibukunoluwa stated that she chose growth over mediocrity.

She has actually recorded a great feat as she graduated with a first-class honours degree in Economics; as the Best graduating student in her Program with a CGPA of 4.84.

She was as well the best graduating student in her College amd lastly, the 3rd overall best graduating student in the 2020/2021 set.

“In addition to my academic success, I served in various leadership capacities, the highest of which was being the Deputy Vice-Chancellor of the school for 1 day,” she said.

Indeed failure is not enough reason to stop struggling and trying to make progress, rather it is a more reason while one should sit-up and try to do more. Her story is indeed inspiring. We wish her all the very best in life.

Congratulations to her
But, I thought the said Bowen Universitie is private?

If yes, no cause for too much jubilation for any first class in private sch, because it is equivalent to 2nd class Lower in Nigeria public universities.

Every private school in Nigeria is profit oriented, established for profit motive.
