    Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has offered the record-setting First Class Law graduate from the Lagos State University (LASU), Aminat Imoitesemeh Yusuf, an automatic employment.

    Obaseki last week congratulated and praised Yusuf who hails from Edo State for emerging as the best ever graduate at LASU with a 5.0 Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) in the institution’s Law Degree Programme.

    On Monday, the Edo Governor offered her an automatic employment into the state’s public service.

    “I am honoured to offer our record-setting Miss Yusuf Aminat automatic employment in the state’s public service,” Obaseki tweeted.

    “To complement our efforts to create the best work environment, we intend to attract and retain the best talent. Miss Aminat, we remain proud of you. The world is your oyster!.”

    Obaseki thereafter spoke to newsmen at the Government House through the Head of Service, Anthony Okungbowa Esq, saying “beyond merely congratulating her, we have offered automatic employment to her.

    “Indeed, we have reached out to her parents and spoken with them, they have accepted our offer of employment. She has not done her law school program and her youth service.

    “We are proposing to write to the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) so that she will serve with us here in Edo State after her law school program so that we don’t run the risk of losing her.”

    On efforts to engender a competitive workforce in the state, the governor said his administration is committed to improving the quality of human resource in the public service.

    “We have set this as a priority and will get the best to work in the state. We have done everything within our power as a government to ensure that we create an enabling environment for work and as a result, we also want the best hands.

    “We are creating the best work environment here so that the public service in Edo State can become attractive enough for the best talent from within and outside the state.

    “We thank our dear young men and women who have excelled in their studies and we expect that more of them will achieve this feat.”

    Obaseki noted that apart from the offer of employment, Miss Yusuf will receive other forms of support as just reward for her sterling feat, stressing that she has indeed given a good account of herself and is a worthy ambassador of Edo state.

    Miss Yusuf and her parents stopped over at the Government House to visit the Deputy Governor, Rt. Hon. Comrade Philip Shaibu, who re-affirmed the governor’s position and offer of employment to the record-setting Yusuf.

    Last week, the Lagos governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, rewarded her with a sum of N10 million at the 26th convocation ceremony of LASU at the Ojo-Iyana Iba area of the State.

    Sanwo-Olu announced a personal donation of N5 million and another N5 million from the Lagos State government for Yusuf who set a 40-year-old record at LASU.

    Her feat has not gone unnoticed as a Lagos monarch, the Oniba of Iba Kingdom, Oba Sulaimon Adeshina Raji gave her N2 million and promised her full sponsorship through Law School.

    The Vice Chancellor of LASU, Prof. Ibiyemi Olatunji-Bello, had also said last week that Yusuf will be rewarded with N500,000 cash prize.
