Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has offered Yusuf Aminat, a record-setting First Class Law graduate, of Lagos State University (LASU), automatic employment into the State’s public service.
Aminat, who hails from Edo State, graduated from LASU with a 5.0 Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) in the institution’s Law Degree Programme, the best CGPA in the schools history
The state’s Head of Service, Anthony Okungbowa Esq. who conveyed the governor’s offer said “Beyond merely congratulating her, we have offered automatic employment to her.
“Indeed, we have reached out to her parents and spoken with them. They have accepted our offer of employment.”
The Deputy Governor of the state, Rt Hon Philip Shaibu had earlier hosted Aminat and her parents in his office where he said she is a role model to young Nigerians who have demonstrated their desire to take back Nigeria into their hands.
Shaibu said “You have given hope to that child that thinks all is lost. Nigeria is in dire need of role models, role models are lacking in our system and the last elections showed that the young people are ready to take their destiny in their hands, people like you will have to play a role to motivate them.”
In her response, Aminat said, “I have always been very passionate about reading law and the fact that women of today now have more opportunities than our mothers had I wanted to also show that to a full extent when given the opportunity we will excel and with God’s support and my parent’s support;
“I have been able to do that and the goal is to excel beyond my imagination and I intend to go as far as my imagination can take me and I am passionate about my state.”
