Ogun State Governor Dapo Abiodun has rewarded Miss Joy Oyinlola Adesina, who emerged the Best Graduating Student from the Faculty of Clinical Sciences, Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU),Ile Ife, with a house, a sum of N5m and a scholarship.

Abiodun, who announced the rewards at the reception organised in honour of Miss Adesina, on Wednesday, noted that the medical scholarship would be for her residency at the Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital, Sagamu.

The governor noted that the awardee by being the best medical graduate to have come out of the OAU is “an accomplishment, a rare feat that most of her peers can only dream of.”

Miss Adesina scored 10 distinctions and won 9 top awards in her final exams.

Abiodun observed that “her accomplishment is coming on the back of the spectacular performances of some of our young indigenes, who recently excelled in their various academic pursuits and were duly rewarded by our Administration under a programme called the Ogun Academic Laureates”.

Abiodun noted that with the Ogun Academic Laureates Awards, his administration has introduced hope to rekindle passion for excellence in academics excellence and innovation, especially for the successor generation.

This, according to him, “is to groom and harvest more Wole Soyinkas; Theophilus Ogunlesis; Adeoye Lambos; Olikoye Ransome-Kutis; Akin Mabogunjes; Oyinade Olurins; and, more Obafemi Awolowos”.

He reiterated that his administration would continue to recognize and honour exceptional indigenes or residents of Ogun State, who through a dint of hard work attained academic excellence and are found worthy both in character and innovations.

Abiodun disclosed that Ogun Academic Laureates had been fully rewarded with the promised scholarships, cash prizes and houses, stressing that “we did this, not just because it is the right and honourable thing to do having made the promise, but also because we are a promise-keeping administration. We do not make promises that we do not intend to or cannot fulfill”.

Responding, the honouree, appreciated the gestures extended to her by the State, saying that: ” I am very fulfilled”.

She thanked her uncle, Dr. Akinwunmi Adesina for “his inspiration” and parents for their love and support to achieve the feat at the medical school.
