Five years after enrollment, Queen Ola finally graduates from university
Badirat Adeyemi, popularly known as Queen Ola, the youngest wife of Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, has finally graduated from the University of Ibadan.
Her graduation ceremony is coming five years after she enrolled as a direct entry student at the university, having acquired a Higher National Diploma certificate before.
For two sessions, the queen had to defer her studies because she was pregnant with her first son and also had to nurse him after birth.
Queen Ola, who is currently undergoing her one year service as a member of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Lagos shared her graduation ceremony picture on Instagram and narrated why this is just happening now.
