Married Woman celebrates as bags First-Class Honours in Law

Jimoh Olaide Lateefat, a Nigerian Lady who is now a mother of one, has revealed that she stopped her education in 2006 because she had no money to continue.

In an interview with ALLSCHOOL, Lateefat narrated how she got admission into the University of Ilorin but couldn’t continue due to lack of money.

But she didn’t quit, she had to switch to a diploma in law at Ekiti State University, afterward went to the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) to further her law studies because she didn’t gain direct entry admission into EKSU (ie after the diploma program).

Unfortunately, when she was almost through with her studies in NOUN, she got information that the Law programme is not fully accredited.

This made her start afresh through direct entry admission to Ekiti State University.

In her words: “…I finished Secondary school in 2006 and got admitted into University of Ilorin but couldn’t go because of lack of financial capability to pay the tuition then.

“I had a diploma in law from Ekiti State University EKSU in 2011 after which I proceeded to National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) to study law because I couldn’t secure admission into EKSU at that time and principally because I couldn’t afford to pay the school fees at that time because of the increment.

“As at the time I was almost through in NOUN, the law school issue has not been resolved. So I obtained a Direct entry form and I got admitted into 200 Level as a Direct Entry student in 2016 in EKSU, I got married in 2017, had my son same year.

“I had a lot of encouragement from different angles but it is my husband who was my fiance as at the time I got admitted who specifically gave me the go ahead and undertook to sponsor me.”

Lateefat who finally graduated with a first class honours with a 4.58 CGPA, added that “The journey has not been a smooth one, from being unable to go to school due to inability to pay the fee, to diploma days, to distance learning, then marriage, kid and schooling combined with running a little business.

“There were times I cried my self to sleep, there were times I felt like giving up, several times I question myself if it’s worth the stress but at the end of the journey all those questions has been answered in the affirmative. It took so long but it came with a crown.”

Advising students who would want to also graduate with a first-class honours, she said: “I’ll advise them to not joke with their initial years in the university, it really goes a lot in determining what you’ll graduate with”
