The law graduate stated this at the 13th Convocation and 16th Foundation Anniversary of the university in Owo.

“Growing up, I was not an exceptional student and I had this teacher back then, who saw me as a dullard and talked me down. The teacher told me that I could not answer a particular question asked because it was meant for intelligent students.

“Before I got to university, I lost my mother. And my siblings and I said we must be diligent and work harder. So, with the help of God, with diligence and hard work, I am what I am today.

She added that she never had the intention of graduating as the best student when she gained admission into the university.

Adama explained that she was just diligent in her studies and it paid off.
