Sunday 25th June, 2023





It was an uncommon news conference on Thursday 15th June, 2023  when the Vice Chancellor of the Lagos State University, Prof Ibiyemi Ọlatunji-Bello announced to the whole world the extraordinary feat of perfect 5.0 CGPA achieved by a Muslim hijab activist and promising lawyer, Yusuf Aminat Imoitesemeh during the International news conference to  kick-start the 26th Convocation Ceremony of the University. According to Prof Ibiyemi, Aminat’s record is the best graduating student CGPA in the history of the forty years old  University


The announcement which has echoed round the academic and legal spheres in Nigeria and beyond has been greeted with encomiums, prayers, gifts and encouragement  for Aminat Yusuf.


With great pleasure and immense happiness with the unfolding episodes of this great achievement, the Lagos State Chapter of the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has congratulated the lady for her academic brilliance and exceptionism.


The congratulatory message according to the chairman of the State Chapter, Dr Busari Jamiu Muhammad Ademola, reads:


“The Muslim world especially the Muslims living in Lagos and indeed Nigeria are overjoyed with the extraordinary feat recorded by Aminat Yusuf in the history of Lagos State University. We are extremely happy and proud of her achievement in the Faculty of Law with a perfect 5.0 CGPA. What an unblemish grade and performance!


“We congratulate Aminat for making herself, her parents, Lagos State University, women folk and indeed Nigerian Muslims proud. She has demonstrated that adorning hijab constitutes no hinderance to success if there is  determination.


“We equally congratulate her parents, Mr and Mrs Yusuf for raising a golden child. For gifting unto the world a coteous and hardworking  girl who combines beauty with academic brilliance.


“MURIC advises Nigerian youth to follow the trail of Aminat. We are all living witnesses of what is happening to her right now. She has brought honour to herself and her family. She is being celebrated by all and sundry in many ways. Nigerian youths must shun all social vices and emulate Aminat’s academic and moral performance.


“Lastly, we urge the Lagos State Government and the Management of the Lagos State University to immortalize Aminat’s name.


“We appreciate what the University and various individuals have done for her, more is still expected in order to serve as reference point for all Nigerian girls and youths. We must celebrate our children who excel in academics to curtail the avalanche of moral decadence being displayed by our youths in the society. By doing this, Lagos State and indeed Nigeria shall be great while hundreds and thousands of Aminats shall emerge in various sectors of our national endeavors.
