Best graduating student gives birth to baby girl hours after convocation in LASU

 Mrs Elizabeth Orefuwa, the overall best graduating student of the Lagos State University, Ojo, was delivered of a baby girl barely a day convocation ceremony.
29-year-old Orefuwa graduated with a Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA)  of 4.74 at the university’s 21st convocation held on Wednesday, March 22.

The new mother 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.
She however did not relent in her efforts to acquire a university education because she was determined and her father also motivated her.
"My aim is to get my first degree certificate after several years of waiting and to satisfy my dad, who has been insisting on academic certificate before professional certificate. He would always say to me then that I have put the cart before the horse. However, what kept me going was self-belief, focus and determination bearing in mind that I am not competing with others but with my own capabilities."

Orefuwa got married in her final year in 2015. She intends to teach accounting and also practice accounting as a profession.
