As the best Graduating Student in the MSc Petroleum Geoscience Class of 2015/2016, Department of Geology, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-ife, NDPR’s Adewunmi Abdul received a prize donated by Dr. Layi Fatona, MD NDPR Ltd.
On the 3rd of March 2016, Dr Fatona gave a career talk in the Department of Geology, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-ife. As Dr Fatona’s session ended, he presented the Head of the Department with a mini SONY VIAO Laptop, to be given to whoever graduated top of the 2015/2016 Professional Masters class.
Little did he know that the prize would be won so close to home. Adewunmi is currently a Geoscientist at NDPR, a role she resumed shortly after her graduation.
Adewunmi was determined to achieve the status of Best Graduating Student while competing against other students who were equally determined to win the ‘NDPR Prize’.

‘I wish to thank Dr. Fatona for his generous gift and for encouraging students at the career talk. His commitment speaks volumes of his passion towards youths’ growth and development.’
