Oluwanifemi Favour Olajuyigbe of the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering has emerged as the overall best graduating student of the federal university of technology Akure, FUTA.
Oluwanifemi was unveiled during the 33rd Convocation Ceremony held at the school auditorium on Friday November 17, 2023.
Oluwanifemi who read the valedictory address on behalf of FUTA Class 2021 became the overall best graduating student with a Cumulative Grade Point Average, CGPA 4.93.
“My journey at FUTA has been a testament to determination, resilience, and unwavering faith. When I first set foot on this campus, I did not have grand aspirations of becoming the best student in the department, let alone the entire university.
“However, I always held the mindset of giving my absolute best in everything I pursued, and I refused to back down in the face of challenges. I vividly remember one of my major prayer points upon being admitted to the university: “Father, make me excel wherever I am, so when people ask how I’m doing it, I will say it is by Your grace.” Looking back, I can confidently say that I am a product of that prayer, and I humbly give all glory to God. It is not by my own power or might that I stand here as the best-graduating student but by the grace of God,” she said.
