Two final-year Mass Communication students at the Benue State University, Makurdi, Benue State, identified only as Dorcas and Deborah, on Saturday, abandoned their wedding receptions to take their final exams.

The final paper is codenamed, Com 402: Media Law and Ethics. The newly-weds left their husbands behind with their bridal trains and came into the examination hall in their wedding gowns.

The course lecturer, Dr. Benjamin Ogbu, told our correspondent on the telephone that the two brides entered the examination hall amidst jubilation and excitement.

Ogbu stated that he could not ascertain the surnames of the two ladies because there were other students with similar names.

He said, “The timetable for the exam was earlier fixed before their weddings were fixed and interestingly, both were on April 7, 2018. Since the exam couldn’t be shifted, the two brides left their various reception venues for the examination hall to sit for the exams in their wedding gowns.

“I was with the deputy vice-chancellor (academic) when both women stormed the examination hall. It was a moment of joy for all of us as students and lecturers. We were happy that our students got married and they (students) were happy too that they got married and also took their last exams same day. It was a double joy for them.”

Ogbu said as a member of the varsity’s Examination Monitoring team, he was elated to see the two female students in their weddings gowns with utmost desire to graduate.

He said weddings couldn’t interrupt the university’s academic calendar nor force the shift of an examination.
