On her wedding day, after she was pronounced a new bride, Oluwatunmise Adejube, an HND 1 Accountancy student of Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, Owo (RUGIPO), Ondo State, rushed to the school to write an exam. All was silent in the
examination hall as students prepared to write a tough paper. Then a lady, clad in a sparkling wedding gown, sauntered in, walking dazzlingly on the narrow path between the hall benches.
Before invigilators at the Old Auditorium, the exam venue, understood what was happening, the tension soaked atmosphere became relaxed as the lady’s action elicited laughter from the stressed students, who thought it was all a drama. Oluwatunmise was accompanied by a group of ladies, who formed her bridal train. They stormed the school in a convoy of 3 exotic cars. Barely an hour later, she rushed out of examination hall to reception, where her husband and guests were waiting.
Oluwatumise, who now answers Mrs Adesina, said she had no choice than to leave the court room to write the paper, stressing that her education was as important to her as her marriage. She said: “When the wedding date was fixed some months ago, nobody knew it would clash with my 2nd semester examination. What appears to be a saving grace for me is that, both the wedding and examination are taking place in the same town. If otherwise, I would have missed the 3-unit paper and carry it automatically.”
The groom, Adesina, said he was startled when his bride told him the examination timetable clashed with the wedding. He said: “I really praised her dogged determination. It was like a tug of war because she had to prepare for her exam and ran around for the wedding at the same time. Now that the confusion is over, I give thanks to God for making it easy for us.”….. he has promised to make sure she gets pregnant b4 d end of d month as a way of appreciating her…. Credit: THE NATION
