Oluwatunmise Adejube, an HND 1 Accountancy student of Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, Owo (RUGIPO), Ondo State, wrote an exam on the day of her wedding.
via THE NATION:
Before invigilators at the Old Auditorium, the exam venue, understood what was happening, the tension-soaked atmosphere became relaxed as the lady’s action elicited laughter from the stressed students, who thought it was all a drama. But, this was not a comedy, neither was it a rib-tickling stunt. It all happened at Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, Owo (RUGIPO) in Ondo State. The lady, Oluwatunmise Adejube, was actually a candidate for the examination.
After she said “yes I do” to her beau, Oluwatumise, a student of Department of Accountancy, hurriedly left the Owo Local Government Area, where she swore matrimonial oath, and rushed to the school for her Higher National Diploma (HND) 1 examination. She created a scene when she breezed into the examination hall in her flowing wedding gown. She was accompanied by a group of ladies, who formed her bridal train. They stormed the school in a convoy of three exotic cars.
Barely an hour later, Oluwatunmise rushed out of examination hall to reception, where her husband and guests were waiting for her arrival at the ceremony. An invigilator, who spoke told CAMPUSLIFE on condition of anonymity, said Oluwatumise was allowed to write the paper despite her lateness for the exam because of her determination not to be carried away by the euphoria of her wedding.
Speaking with our reporter after writing the paper, Oluwatumise, who now answers Mrs Adesina, said she had no choice than to leave the court room to write the paper, stressing that her education was as important to her as her marriage. She said: “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 otherwise, I would have missed the three-unit paper and carry it automatically.”
The groom, Adesina, told CAMPUSLIFE that he was startled when his bride told him the examination timetable clashed with the wedding. He said Production Management, was considered the toughest and her spouse would be writing the paper on the day of their wedding. He said: “I really praised her dogged determination. It was like a tug of war because she had to prepare for her exam and ran around for the wedding at the same time. Now that the confusion is over, I give thanks to God for making it easy for us.”
