Ogun State Governor Dapo Abiodun has rewarded Joy Oyinlola Adesina, who emerged as the Best Graduating Student from the Faculty of Clinical Sciences, Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile Ife, with a house, N5 million and a scholarship for further studies.

Abiodun, who announced the rewards at the reception organised in honour of Adesina, yesterday, said that the medical scholarship would be for her residency at the Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital (OOUTH), Sagamu.

The governor noted that the awardee by being the best medical graduate to have come out of the OAU is “an accomplishment, a rare feat that most of her peers can only dream of.”

Abiodun, who tasked the awardee to put her intellectual prowess into research and scholarship, expressed optimism that Adesina might be Africa’s first Nobel Laureate in Medicine.
