In her remarks, the Ace newscaster MS Wuraola Yusuff appreciated the Almighty Allah for making this day a reality
“I want to thank Almighty Allah for giving me the opportunity of seeing this day. Few years ago, I fasted and prayed for days because I wanted to gain admission into the mighty “first and the best” and today, I bagged a degree from the same University. I must confess, it feels so surreal. One thing I can never forget in this journey was a UTME tutor telling me to pick another school because I can’t make it into UI. I took that as a challenge and did no other POST UTME asides from University of Ibadan’s own. I am so proud of myself because I made it. The cries, prayers and midnight reading struggles paid so well. All I can say is ALHAMDULILLAH.”
