Miss Abiola, with Matriculation Number 258184358, graduate this after the completion of her studies in a graduating class that has a total of 564 students.
Mr. Semie Okanlawon of Bureau of Communication and Strategy Office of t explained that Miss Abiola was among other 98 students who secured admission to study Medicine at the state-owned Osun State University, had their study dreams terminated after the National Universities Commission (NUC) scrapped their course owing to the non-availability of a teaching hospital.
“This was a source of concern to the Governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola. This unfortunate development compelled the governor to seek for options to rescue the students from abrupt truncation of their dreams to become medical doctors,” he said.
“In the course of looking for solutions, the National University of Kharkiv, Ukraine came into focus. By 2012, arrangements were concluded to send the students to Ukraine where they resumed their studies,” Mr. Okanlawon stated.
He recalled that 98 students who were stranded were originally planned for but 87 of them eventually made it to Ukraine because parents of the other remaining students had secured other options for their children.
He quoted Governor Aregbesola as expressing joy and excitement that “one of our students Miss Oyeleye Lateefah Abiola emerged overall best in Ukraine University final examinations.”

The statement added that the feat recorded by Miss Abiola is one of the several indicators that the Aregbesola government in Osun has created a landmark in the area of education that cannot be overlooked.
The statement recalled that the government, convinced of the sanctity of its decision then, had ignored criticisms from certain quarters which condemned the decision by the state government to send the students to Ukraine.
Nigerian students are revered as one of the best in the world and Nigeria has produced one of the highest number of university graduates in the world.
