Ambode adopts LASU’s best graduating student, gifts him N5m

Fuad Ogunsanya Adetoro, the best graduating student of the Lagos state University (LASU), has been adopted by the state governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, who has made a commitment to sponsor the former’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….The governor noted that it is unusual for a university visitor to attend the first day of university convocation where first degrees are awarded; hence, he said the day must have been divinely obtained. He stated: “But I don’t know why I decided to come. This confirms that there is a divine side to the story. The story of the best graduating student is too compelling to ignore. It makes me reflect my own background too; therefore, I hereby adopt him.” Ogunsanya expressed appreciation for the governor’s gesture, and resolved to make good use of the financial gift and scholarship offered to him. Olugbenga emerged as one of the five selected Hesselbein International Scholars from Africa to participate in the Hesselbein Global Leadership Summit at the prestigious Hesselbein Global Academy for Student Leadership and Civic Engagement, University of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, US.
