The golden jubilee convocation ceremony took place at the University’s Multi-purpose hall yesterday. The University’s Vice Chancellor, Professor Rahamon Bello disclosed that a total of 91 graduating students finished with first class honours.
He said the university was determined to continue its tradition of producing quality first class brains that can compete favourably with their counterparts in any part of the world.
“I will not fail to remind you that the vision of the university remains to be a top class institution for the pursuit of excellence in knowledge through learning, research and community service, and we have vigorously maintained that tradition over the years,” he said.
The Pro Chancellor of the institution who is also the chairman of UNILAG Governing Council, Dr. Gamaliel Onosode said the members articulated a philosophical thrust which included championing the attainment of the vision and mission of the university and that this was in addition to implementing a comprehensive programme of action to uplift the university in its quest to become a top class institution.
Onosode stressed that the institution has organised training for the staff, adding that the staff and students have been put on the front burner to ensure that the human resources development elements of the university keep growing.
