It’s a family affair –celebrating a quadruple graduation

22 June 2016 

Oredipe familyAmazingly one family, the Oredipes, will have four family members graduating from NTU! In 2015 three members graduated: Kehinde Oredipe (MSc Human Resource Management 2015), Taiwo Oredipe (MA International Development 2015) and Tosin Oredipe (MSc Economics 2015). The fourth family member to graduate in September 2016 will be Adebola Oredipe, currently studying MA Public Health.
In May, David Bailey (International Development Director) and Selma Toohey (Senior International Officer, Africa) met with the whole Oredipe family, minus three who couldn't make it, for dinner in Abuja, Nigeria.
The group were also joined by Muriel Cookey (LLB Hons Law with Business 2014 and LLM Oil, Gas and Mining Law 2016) who had been assisting with an earlier event preceding the dinner.
Selma said: “A lovely time was had by all and it was so nice to meet the mum and the younger siblings in the Oredipe family.”
David and Selma were in Nigeria to meet with prospective students joining the University in September and to take part in a debut of NTU Africa cinema advertisements featuring Fehinti Ojelabi (BA Hons Broadcast Journalism 2015) and her two siblings, Fike and Fikun. (current students on BA Hons Business and BA Hons International Relations).
