It was double joy for Mrs Elizabeth Orefuwa, the overall best graduating student of the Lagos State University, LASU, as she was delivered of a baby girl barely a day after graduating.
Orefuwa graduated with a Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of 4.74 at the university’s 21st convocation held on March 22. She’s same lady who wrote JAMB 7 times.
An ecstatic Orefunwa, said she felt the contraction just before the convocation and was scared if the baby would deny her the opportunity of participating in the graduation.
“I was having contraction and was scared that the baby might come before the convocation. I told God to take control because I wanted to experience the convocation and God took control until I got home.
“It was when I got home that it started again and my husband took me to the hospital where I gave birth at about 1pm on Thursday,’’ Orefuwa told NAN.
Reliving her experience, 29-year-old Orefuwa said she had yet to come terms with the reality of becoming a mother.
Earlier, during the institution’s convocation on Wednesday, she said the journey through the school did not come easy but with determination and motivation, she had a good story to tell.
