I want to commend the Pro Chancellor Vice Chancellor the Governing Council and the University Management for the successes recorded by the university, especially in recent times.
ON BEHALF OF MY FELLOW AWARDEES WE THANK THE Pro Chancellor AND GOVERNING COUNCIL FOR THIS award that has been bestowed on us today and consider it as a call for us to do more in the service of humanity.
I believe the university management should not be left to do it alone. This is the practice all over the world, where private citizens , bodies and foundations partner to provide quality education.
There is no doubt that affordable and qualitative education is one of the best panaceas to the present developmental challenges facing our country, especially the socio-cultural and security vulnerabilities in which are our youths are the highest brunt bearers.”
“I am a firm believer and supporter of Article 26 of the United Nations Universal Declaration on Human Rights (1948), to which Nigeria is a signatory; that declared the Right to Education as a fundamental human right.”
“In the light of the foregoing, we have no hesitation whatsoever, in accepting the honorary doctorate degree on us , on behalf of my fellow awardees which I believe is a challenge for us to do more”,
As we are now an Alumnus of this university, our doors will remain open to you and we won’t be far away from you.
We have decided to support this University by funding the building of an ultra modern lecture theatre .
We thank our friends. Associates and staff who have travelled from far to witness this occasion and wish all of us safe journey back to our various destinations.
I won’t end this address without congratulating my fellow alumni graduating today and your parents and guardians on your wonderful landmark achievement.
I urge you to go out there and conquer.
Thank you and God bless.
Dr. Dapo Abiodun MFR
