Strange but true, a Nigerian Birmingham City University student Anu Yusuf earned two certificates in less than 24 hours.
Anu Yusf and husband Kolawole Joseph
Yusuf, who was billed to graduate on Wednesday, July, 27, 2016 also got married same day.
Yusuf, aged 26 graduated with a first-class degree in Law (LLB) in a ceremony at Symphony Hall alongside hundreds of her fellow students wearing a traditional cap and gown merely hours after she was dressed in all white as she tied the knot at Birmingham Register Office with her 27-year-old husband Joseph Kolawole.
The two love birds had met four years ago in Gombe while undertaking their mandatory National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) but had to prolong their engagement 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 day!”
Yusuf and Joseph’s wedding started at 10.40 am with a civil ceremony at Birmingham Register Office which was later followed by the official wedding photography after which the 50 guests alongside the couple headed for a midday blessing at Anu’s church, VBCI Treasure Sanctuary, located at Perry Barr Methodist Church, north of the City. The service finished at 1 pm.
With just a little time to take a bite, Yusuf got dressed for her graduation with half of the guests that witnessed her wedding which was held at Birmingham city centre for 2 pm to collect her cap and gown before receiving her first-class degree. Half of the wedding party accompanied Anu to Symphony Hall.=================================== ***CONNECT WITH US***
