Thursday November 23, 2023, will always remain a date to remember for the family of the federal lawmaker, Rt. Hon. Thomas Ereyitomi.
On that fateful day, Ereyitomi, who represents Warri Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, stood tall in the crowd at Nile University, Abuja, as his daughter, Oritsemeyi bagged a degree from the prestigious ivory tower.
Oritsemeyiwa was admitted into Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science and International Relations.
For the graduand too, it was a great day, especially for attaining that milestone at that youthful age.
At that age, some kids at her age bracket are still battling the Joint Admission & Matriculation Board (JAMB) for elusive admission into a tertiary institution.
Not only that, these kids, especially from well to do homes, attract shame and dishonour to the family by getting involved in shameful and disgraceful actions and behaviour.
But Oritsemeyiwa took the path of honour as she dutifully pursued her educational career and earned her first degree in record time.
One can, therefore, understand the state of mind of Rt. Hon. Thomas Ereyitomi as Oritsemeyiwa brought
joy and happiness to the family.
The elated lawmaker shunned plenary on Thursday as he led family members and few friends to Nile University in celebration of his adorable daughter.
Oritsemeyiwa’s elder sibling, Bawo, was also on hand to share in the joy of the day.
Oritsemeyiwa is known for paying diligent attention to details.
Her hobbies include reading fiction novels and travelling.
