|21 Students Bag First Class At Redeemer’s University by chamber2(m): 7:46am On Oct 10, 2011|
A 19-year-old girl, Ayomide Abiodun Oluwadare, from the Department of Mathematical Sciences, has emerged the best graduating student of the Redeemer’s University, Ogun State, with the cumulative grade point average of 4.96.
Oluwadare, with registration number RUN07-08/1413, was among the 21 graduating students of the university that made First Class Honours at the 2011 convocation ceremony, held at the Redeemed Christian Church of God Youth Centre, Redemption City, Ogun State, at the weekend. Oluwadare, who was named Ayomide (My joy has come) by her father, Gabriel, brought joy to her entire family, as she smiled home with eight coveted prizes, including the cash prize of N50,000 for the best overall graduating students from the Visitor of the university, Pastor Enoch Adeboye.
The newly appointed Vice Chancellor of the university, Professor Zachariah Adeyewa, said the institution has become a pacesetter as evidenced by the quality of its graduates. He said the university has continued to provide scholarship to numerous students in her bid to promote quality education. Aside the 21 students that made First Class, Adeyewa said 141 others hit the ground as missed the graduation ceremony. According to him, 16 of them were expelled while 91 others failed to pass their courses and had to repeat classes at various levels of their studies.
“We are happy to note that the female students have continued to excel more than the male counterparts. In the last two years, the best graduating student has always been a female. This year is not an exception, as we celebrate Miss Ayomide Oluwadare for emerging the best graduating student”, he said.
Adeyewa said 23 of the best graduates of the university were appointed as Graduate Assistants, from where they would be sponsored for their Masters and Doctoral degree programmes. “It is hoped that our alumni will form the bedrock of staff that would help to uphold the traditions of honesty, integrity and excellence in the nearest future,” he added.
Also speaking, the Visitor to the university and General Overseer, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, charged the graduating students not to leave the university with only a certificate but the anointing and knowledge of God.
“We have taught you in Redeemer’s University to the best of our ability. We have not only taught you circularly but also spiritually…if you know that the reason I keep praying is because it is not enough to succeed. You need help to keep succeeding. If you follow that pattern, each time we hear from you, it will be good news. When you come face to face with the realities of life, just remember what we have taught you”, he said.

What is going on in these private universities? Is this a marketing strategy or what?

I can't understand all these with these 'university abuse' students.
19 years? I thought the minimum age requirement for varsity admission was 16 years?

It's very possible to get many 1st class graduates in Private universities these days because the standard of discipline and moral is higher. The students don't get distracted (strike, cultism, parties etc). The majority of them are focused, they are also blessed with serene reading environment and the lecturers are better paid and give their best.
