“This is truly commendable! Your dedication and hard work have paid off,” Mr Sanwo-Olu said in a tweet posted on his verified Twitter handle Friday.

The governor also commended “the outstanding academic achievements” of other university students who achieved first-class honours in the 2020/2021 and 2021/2022 sessions.

As a state, we will continue to reward and support academic excellence,” he said.

The brilliant, young Ms Yusuf was announced as the best-graduating student on Wednesday.
