A 24-year-old man, Michael Arowosegbe, son of
a contract security man, has emerged the overall
best graduating student of Lagos State
This was revealed during the institution’s 20th
convocation ceremony which took place on
Wednesday, May 25.
Arowoshegbe, who obtained a First Class » in
Biochemistry, scored 4.86 Cumulative Grade
Point Average to beat over 17, 000 candidates
the university produced in the 2013/2014 and
2014/2015 academic sessions.
Arowosegbe, during his valedictorian speech,
shares how much his father has sacrificed for
him and for the institution.
He said, “ Many of my friends and colleagues never
knew that he once worked as a contract staff,
attached to the Campus Marshal. I witnessed a
students’ protest while in 100 level, where he was
stoned. I could not cry.
“As if that was not enough, another incident
occurred on November 9, 2012, which changed his
life to this day. He had an accident on a bike,
while on duty on campus, where he hit his head
and back against the university gate. He could not
move any of his limbs initially.
“Some even thought that was the end of him, and
that it might affect my academics because there
was no succour from the appropriate authorities,
But, glory be to God, he is recuperating and I am
today a graduate .”
The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Olanrewaju Fagbohun,
in his speech, urged the graduands to remain
worthy ambassadors of the university.
