Brilliant Lady bags Microbiology degree with 4.84 first-class, wins best graduating student award

A brilliant Nigerian Lady named Bukola Ademujimi has won the award of best graduating student at Adekunle Ajasin University, Nigeria after bagging a Microbiology degree with 4.84 over a possible 5.00 cumulative grade point.

Bukola obtained a bachelor’s degree in Microbiology with an outstanding grade of distinction from Adekunle Ajasin University Ondo, Nigeria. She was awarded the best student of the university’s Faculty of Science.

She stated that her initial dream was to study Nursing Science at University of Port-Harcourt (UNIPORT) which was opposed due to the traveling distance by her parents. She added that it was her parent who suggested Adekunle Ajasin University.

She said she had decided to study at Adekunle Ajasin University choosing Microbiology as it was widely believed that microbiology and biochemistry are the best science courses in the university.

“Initially, I didn’t plan to study Microbiology, because all through my secondary school days, it sounded strange to me. Though, my UTME score was enough to study Nursing Science in UNIPORT,” she said.

”I put in for UNIPORT, but was compelled to change my Institution to AAUA, and pick one of their best courses – as its’ widely believed that microbiology and biochemistry are the best science courses in AAUA,” she added.

Bukola said with the support of her happy and supportive family over time, her love for microbiology was rekindled. She said after scoring 4.56 in her first year at the university, she proposed to keep the energy rolling.



 “Though, I didn’t want to choose microbiology. I believe in the fact that whatever is worth doing is worth doing well. I initially worked towards having 4.0 when I discovered my roommate was a 3.9 scale,” she said.

”But, I was motivated when our 100-level first semester results were released, and I was on a 4.56 scale. After having C’s in two courses during my early days in AAUA, I proposed never to have a C. My background inclusive motivated me to study hard,” she added.

Bukola mentioned that she has been given a lecturing offer which she will use to impact society with the knowledge gained. She added that she intends to also specialize in food and industries, an aspect of microbiology.

”I equally have the intention of establishing a non-governmental organization (Equicare foundation) that’ll impact the society, specifically 100 and 200-level students,” she said.
