An alumnus of Covenant University (CU) identified as Osoko Abisola Olutola has emerged as the best graduating Ph.D. candidate in her department.


Abisola bagged her doctorate degree in marketing at the age of 27 with a cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of 4.83.

Announcing her achievement in a LinkedIn post, Abisola said: “Last week Friday, I was awarded a PhD degree in marketing with specialization in brand equity, customer loyalty, and customer relationship management.

“I emerged the best Phd student in Marketing with a CGPA of 4.83.


“I’m thankful to God for grace and strength.

“I sincerely appreciate every individual who was instrumental to my success, my supervisors, senior colleagues, the sector considered in my research. I am grateful for the privilege to have experienced the academic rigor as well.

“I look forward to contributing my quota to marketing (brand equity, customer loyalty, and customer relationship management) in Africa and across the globe.”


Abisola’s achievement comes at about the same time when Adesina Joy Oyinlola, a niece to Akinwumi Adesina, president of the African Development Bank (AfDB), graduated with 10 distinctions from the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU).

Joy also emerged as the overall best graduating student in medicine while also bagging nine other top awards.

TheCable Lifestyle had reported how Osita Chidoka, former minister of aviation, bagged a degree in law from Baze University, Abuja. He graduated with a second-class upper.

Chidoka, who also served as corp marshal of the Nigerian Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), had disclosed how “humbling” it was to share the same classroom with students under 20s.
