An undergraduate of the Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, located at Owo, Ondo State, Oluwatunmise Adejube has set a bit of a record for herself, she has become perhaps the first student in nigeria to seat for an examination wearing her wedding gown, she was forced to such drastic measures after the two events clashed and she had to some how find a way to combine both.
Oluwatunmise Adejube who is sudying Accountancy at the institution had to put on how wedding gown to the examination hall, after the exam unfortunately fell on her wedding day, fellow students were shocked when they saw her decked in her wedding outfit at the exam hall.
It was drama all the way, as she stormed the exam venue in the company of several young ladies, as they stormed the school in a convoy of cars. It didnt take long though as Oluwatunmise Adejube completed her paper in about an hour and quickly left to join her groom and the waiting guests at her wedding’s receiption.
Justifying why she had to take such drastic decision, Oluwatunmise stressed that although her marriage was important, her education was also important to her as well. She added that she did not want to choose between the two, so she did her best to combine both events.
“When the wedding date was fixed some months ago, nobody knew it would clash with my second semester examination. What appears to be a saving grace for me is that, both the wedding and examination are taking place in the same town, if not, I would have missed the three-unit paper and carry it over automatically,” she said.
