Brides abandon wedding reception for exams in Benue

The two final-year Mass Communication students, identified as Dorcas and Deborah, yesterday abandoned their wedding reception to write their final exams at the Benue State University, Makurdi.

The final paper is codenamed, Com 402: Media Law and Ethics.

The newly-weds left their husbands behind with their bridal trains and entered the examination hall in their wedding gowns.

Dr. Benjamin Ogbu, the course lecturer, told Punch: “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 added that as a member of the University Examination Monitoring team, he was elated by the development.
