Nigerian Lady Gets Married And Graduates Same Day In UK With A First Class In Law

A Nigerian lady in UK has created buzz
online after she grabbed two major
major accomplishments on the same
day. 26-year-old Anu Yusuf got married
and graduated with a first class in law
from Birmingham City University a few
hours later.

Anu received her Law LLB in a
ceremony at Symphony Hall alongside
hundreds of her fellow students on
Wednesday 27 July, wearing a
traditional cap and gown. However,
merely hours before, Nigeria-born Anu
was dressed all in white, as she tied the
knot at Birmingham Register Office.

Anu also shared the amazing love story
of herself and her husband, Joseph
Kolawole Ola. She met 27-year
old Kolawole about four years ago in
Gombe while working as part of
Nigeria's National Youth Service Corps
(NYSC), and their subsequent
engagement was prolonged as a result
of her coming to study in the UK.

She said:

"My husband often joked that he
would whisk me away after my
graduation to marry me because he
can no longer wait. So, we decided
to marry on my actual graduation

"Romance aside, it certainly worked
well logistically too, as it meant that
our relatives only had to travel once
for both occasions. We both have
family all over the UK and we were
conscious of taking up too much of
their time and for all the added
expense in making the same
journey twice."

Yusuf and Ola's wedding started at
10.40am with a civil ceremony at
Birmingham Register Office. Following
the official wedding photography, the
entire party headed for a midday
blessing at Yusuf's church, VBCI
Treasure Sanctuary.

The service finished at 1pm and all 50
guests were provided with take-away
meals packaged up in gift bags. The
wedding party enjoyed a traditional
Nigerian meal on-the-go, including
jollof rice with chicken served with
salad, along with gizdodo (gizzard and
plantain), moi moi (made from black-
eyed peas), and poundo yam with
vegetable soup.

All meals were prepared by friends and
members of Yusuf's church, and drinks
were brought by her husband's pastor
from Liverpool, whose wife also made
their cake.

Following a bite to eat, Yusuf quickly
changed from her wedding dress in to
another outfit and headed back in to
Birmingham city centre for 2pm to
collect her cap and gown before
receiving her first-class degree.
