Miss Rabiyat Usman, a first class graduate of the Rhema University, Aba has said that her conversion to Christianity transformed the course of her life and academics.
'How my conversion to Christianity helped me graduate with First Class' - Rabiyat Usman
The first class graduate said that there was no future for lazy and undisciplined graduates.
Usman, therefore, charged undergraduates of Nigerian Universities to fear God and be disciplined, if they wanted a brighter future.
The 23-year-old graduate gave this advice in Aba on Monday, after her graduation on Saturday, during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Aba.
Usman, who has finished her youth service, urged undergraduates to prepare themselves for a competitive world out there with discipline, fear of God and obedience to the university authorities.
The first class graduate said that there was no future for lazy and undisciplined graduates in the larger society, hence the need for a brighter future through hard work.
She said she made a first class honours degree because she was fortunate to have accepted Jesus Christ as her Saviour early at Living Word Academy.
“I actually came into this Secondary School at Nkwerre, Imo State from a different religion, but I became a Christian in JSS 1, while studying in the secondary school.
“My conversion made all the difference because Christianity really helped me to learn the tenets that support hard work and connection to God’s assistance. It was God all the way.
Usman thanked Brother Emma Okorie, the Rhema University Chancellor, for believing in her.
According to her, she was given a scholarship from JSS 1 at the Living Word Academy, Nkwerre, Imo State, to her final year in Rhema University, Aba.
The Okene-born Usman said that she had secured admission to Buckingham University, in the U.K. to further her education, before returning to bless Nigerians with her expertise.
She, however, noted that she would prefer to study at Harvard University, but stressed that she needed some scholarship or funding, to help her to pay tuition overseas.
