“When I became the President of the Christian Law Students Fellowship of Nigeria (CLASFON) at the end of my 3rd year as a law student at Rivers State University, most people felt that was the end of my academic success story.
Apart from taking on huge tasks of organizing statutory programs, mentorship, counseling, and tutorial classes while in office, I led my team to host and organize the first-ever Alumni Homecoming of the fellowship, which had prominent persons like the First Lady of the state who doubles as a High Court Judge, other judges, the Head of Service of the State and other dignitaries in attendance.”
“As a leader on campus, one would naturally expect nothing but poor grades but here I am today to announce to the glory of God that I didn’t just graduate with a First Class- 4.86/5.00 CGPA; but went home on the Convocation day smiling with 8 prestigious awards which include;
- Best Graduating Female Student Rivers State University, 2020/2021 Academic session.
- Best Graduating Student Faculty of Law
- Best Graduating Student Department of Jurisprudence and International Law
- Best Graduating student in Land Law
- Best Graduating student in Labour and Industrial Law amongst other individual and collective awards to the glory of God, my source of strength.”
“With great joy in my heart, I dedicate these awards to all leaders on campus, who sacrifice their time, studies, and resources for the benefit of other students, may your zealousness and devotion to service to God and humanity not be in vain.
Congratulations to me as I look forward to more success stories to the Glory of God.”
