A Muslim lady, Miss Aminat Yusuf, was on Wednesday  announced as the best graduating student of the Lagos State University (LASU) with a perfect Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of 5.00.

The Vice-Chancellor of LASU, Prof. Ibiyemi Olatunji-Bello, made this known at a press conference to announce the university’s 26th Convocation Ceremonies to hold on June 21.

The Kogi indigene broke LASU’s 40-year 5.0 CGPA record.

“I am also glad to announce that YUSUF Aminat Imoitesemeh, with a CGPA of 5.00 [First Class Honours] is LASU’s Best Graduating student in history. I congratulate her, her family and the Faculty of Law on this laudable feat,” the VC said.

The convocation is for the 2020/2021 and 2021/2022 academic sessions but  Olatunji-Bello clarified that Yusuf belonged to the 2021/2022 academic session.

Aminat Yusuf, who is an alumnae of Al-Hikmah College in Lagos, is an Hijab rights activist whom has been published in many news platforms.

In March 2018, one of her articles titled, “My Hijab : An Appraisal Of The Right To Freedom Of Thought, Conscience And Religion in The Nigerian Constitution” was published in The Nation Newspaper.

She is a distinguished and academically astute Law graduate with a proven track record of excellence, who also balanced this with extracurricular activities.

With developed interest in the areas of Corporate & Commercial Law Practice, intellectual curiosity propelled her to take up finance-based courses, one of which is the CFA Investment Foundations Program. Having interned with Top Law firms, such as Olaniwun Ajayi LP; Primus Grace LP; Omaplex Law Firm and M.A Banire and Associates, the experience garnered thus far and a Certificate Course with Jobberman Soft Skills Training have equipped her with technical skills, relevant soft skills and the right values appealing to success in the Legal Industry.

The Muslim Students’ Society of Nigeria, Lagos State Area Unit wishes Yusuf Aminat a sterling career in the Legal Industry and success in life.

MSSNLagos Amir, Miftahudeen Thanni, said the organisation is proud of Aminat’s feat and her contribution to hijab rights advocacy in Nigeria.

He also saluted her desire to unravel seeming impossibilities, particularly in the Legal Profession.
