Fifty medical students of the Osun State University have ended their studies at the V.N Karazin Kharkiv National University, Kharkiv, Ukraine, with Miss Oyeleye Lateefah Abiola, emerging as the overall best graduating student from both the Faculty of Medicine and in the entire university.


She scored 95.6 percent in the KROK 2 Exams which was the final examination for graduating students. The convocation arena erupted in cheers as the best graduating student mounted the stage to deliver her speech.


The Nigerian students were the cynosure of all eyes at the event on Friday.


The graduates were among the 87 students sponsored by the Rauf Aregbesola-led government of Osun State in 2013, to study medicine at the university, out of the inherited 98 who secured admission to study medicine at the state-owned university but could not continue due to non-accreditation of their medical programme.
