Bukola Saraki and wife Toyin

One of the daughters of former Senate President Bukola Saraki has graduated from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), United Kingdom.

Teniayo Saraki, according to an Instagram post by her mother Toyin Saraki on Sunday, graduated with a second class upper degree in international relations.

Mrs Saraki could not hide her joy as a proud mother when she took to social media to celebrate her daughter who was born prematurely.

“For the journey of prayers and nurturing our tiny under-2kg NICU neonates to the first day of nursery class at St Mary’s School, Agba Dam, Ilorin, to a 2:1 without interruption, yet with so much laughter, love and joy with every milestone along the way, we are super-thankful to celebrate Teniayo’s graduation and LSE BSc Hons International Relations achievement!” she wrote.

Teniayo and her twin sister Ola celebrated their 21st birthday in May.

The girls are Saraki’s second set of twins born prematurely after another set of twins born in December 1991 in which one of the children died at birth.

Mrs Saraki was 27 when her first set of twins were born. Her experience led her to start the Wellbeing Foundation Africa to reduce maternal and child mortality in Africa.
