He later wrote WEAC with private study and then moved to UNIBADAN from where he has now graduated with flying colours.

Sharing his story, Ayomide wrote:

"I faced financial challenges in secondary school having to opt out of school in SS2 and focus on active self study and the occasional private lesson for WAEC preparation while also taking up a teaching job. Despite this, I ended up with one of the best results in my set. Through all these, I learnt determination and focus."
"Going into UI, all I had on my mind was to be the best I could be. I was not really fixated on the 'First class' as I have always believed that university education will always make you a better person despite your class of grade. My story is one of God's grace , determination and strength."
