Governor Akinwunmi Ambode has adopted the best graduating student of the Lagos state University – The governor also gifted him with a cash sum of N5 million, as he pointed out that the young man’s story was too compelling to ignore.
The beneficiary and newest “adoptee”, Fuad Ogunsanya Adetoro expressed appreciation for the governor’s gesture and resolved to make good use of the financial gift. Akinwunmi Ambode, also made a commitment to sponsor the lucky man’s Masters programme in any university of his choice in the world.
The governor made the disclosure on Wednesday, May 23, while delivering his address at the LASU 2016/2017 academic convocation, Leadership reports.
And just how brilliant is Ogunsanya to catch the attention of the State Governor himself? He graduated with a Cumulative Grade Point Aggregate (CGPA) of 4.78 (beat that!)
The best graduating student in LASU also got the sum of 5 million for his effort.
