All roads led to McPherson University (McU) in Seriki-Sotayo, Ogun State, as the faith-based institution held its second convocation where four women finished with First Class. IBRAHIM ADEYEMI reports.
Seriki-Sotayo, the sleepy host community of McPherson University, a faith-based tertiary institution established by the Foursquare Gospel Church in Nigeria, came alive last Saturday for the school’s second convocation where 46 graduates received their first degree.
Four of them – all ladies – finished with First Class; a feat that earned the valedictorians coveted academic prizes and accolades from the large audience that graced the event.
Miss Faith Onyekachukwu Ojumah, the Overall Best Graduating Student, who finished with a Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of 4.84, became emotional after she stepped out to receive her prizes. Being the first born in the family of three, the 19-year-old had promised her mother she would make her proud whenever she completes her university degree.
