Matriculation Examination seven times before
gaining admission .
Orefuwa graduated with a Cumulative Grade
Point Average of 4 . 74 in Accounting
Orefuwa , 29 , said during the institution ’ s
21 st convocation on Wednesday in Lagos
that the journey through the institution did
not come easy but with determination and
motivation , she had success a story to tell .
She said that in the process of seeking for
university admission , she started a
professional career in accounting .
She said , “ The journey through the
institution was not easy ; it took me seven
years of writing the UTME before I finally
gained admission in 2012 .
“ I also applied for direct entry three times at
the Obafemi Awolowo University , Ile – Ife .
“ During this period of waiting, I started a
professional career at the Institute of
Chartered Accountant of Nigeria in 2007 and
became qualified as an Associate Chartered
Accountant in 2010 . ”

but fate brought her to education , adding
that she enjoyed every bit of it and never
dreamt of coming out with a first class and
becoming the best student .
She said , “ My aim is to get my first degree
certificate after several years of waiting and
to satisfy my dad , who has been insisting on
academic certificate before professional
certificate .
“ He would always say to me then that I have
put the cart before the horse .
“ However , what kept me going was self –
belief, focus and determination bearing in
mind that I am not competing with other but
with my own capabilities . ’’
She said that her marriage at the beginning
of her final year and the pregnancy condition
did not affect her academic performance .
She said , “ I had a CGPA of 4 . 72 before
marriage and I graduated with 4 . 74 point .
“ I got married during my final year in 2015
and my husband was very supportive
throughout that period . ’’
Although a chartered accountant , Orefuwa
said she would love to teach and combine it
with practising accounting profession .
