University of Osun’s best graduating student, Adeyemo Kazeem has an interesting story.
He was barely doing well in primary school, managed to pass WAEC with 5 credits. After secondary school, he became an Okada man for two years to make ends meet.
In fact, he bought his JAMB form with proceeds his Okada business.
Then the long nights followed; the reading, the deadlines, the stress of just being a Nigerian student.
And then he manages to graduate, and not only graduate, but finishes the best graduating student with a 4.81 GPA.
And so in March, as a reward for excellence, the school management decided to reward his excellence by honouring him with a special gift, presented by the governor no less.
It looks something like this, or close.
Lets not focus on the fact that it costs about the same amount as a decent t-shirt. Maybe they are trying to teach him moral lessons that he forgot to learn while hustling as an Okada boy.
Like how not everything in this life must be about the material sturvs.
Or maybe they blended tomato and put inside the cup, since tomato has turned to gold in the market.
That cup can fit about two thousand naira of blended tomato.
Or maybe they folded money and put inside the cup, because cash at hand can be used as evidence against you at the EFCC.
Or maybe, they were just trying to teach him an interesting life lesson.
