UNILORIN graduates 9,018 Students, VC preaches preparedness for the future

As the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN) graduates 9,018 students, the Vice Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Sulyman Abdulkareem, has admonished the graduating students to brace up to the new challenges providence might likely bring their ways.

The VC disclosed this during a convocation lecture preparatory to the 33 Convocation for the 2016/2017 Graduation of the university in Ilorin.

“As you step out of this hall, probably thinking erroneously that the struggle has ended.

“I must caution that the majority of you, especially those of you that have humble background, will begin a life of another struggle.

“But you should not fret, but be prepared to brace up to the new challenges of life.

“The only way to win the struggle is to be purposeful and ingenious,’’ he advised.

He further stated that the graduating students must gear up to persevere, adding that gone were the days employers waited on convocation arena with assorted job offers.

He explained that the university produced 89 First Class graduates, 1,932 Second class Upper Division, 3,727 Second Class Lower Division, 1,309 Third Class, and 117 Pass.

Earlier, the Pro-Chancellor and Chairman Governing Council of the institution, Dr Abdullahi Oyekan, said the university had good reasons to celebrate in view of its monumental success records.

Oyekan, therefore, urged philanthropists, well-meaning Nigerians, and non-governmental organisations to contribute to the development of the institution in order for it to serve the country better.

He also called on the graduating students to use the knowledge and skills acquired from the university to improve themselves and their society.
