Babcock University, Ilishan-Remo, Ogun State recently graduated 1,926 first degree holders. Among the graduands, is a mother of two, Mrs Edafe Dogo who graduated with a 4.95 cumulative grade point average and emerged the overall best in the 2018/2019 academic session.
Dogo, who is also a staff of the school, said she chose Business Education because of her love for teaching, a trait she picked from her mother who was an elementary school teacher. she said the support of God, her husband and lecturers enabled her to achieve the great feat.
“As a wife and mother of two children, I will say it was God and I trusted Him from the beginning because I didn’t know how to go about it. My family was wonderful, they cooperated with me. My husband helped out whenever I was tired and couldn’t meet up. Throughout it was just God, because without God the waking up early and sleeping late to read would have been in vain. I also had the best lecturers. They never gave up on us, they kept on pushing us until we achieved. I owe my success to my lecturers, family, colleagues and classmates.
“I feel it was easier for me because I was doing something I loved doing, every class or exam was enjoyable. When the results started rolling out I was amazed and just surrendered to God’s will. This is simply God’s will, there is nothing super about me,” Dogo enthused.
