Crescent University, Abeokuta urges good human relations
Crescent University, Abeokuta has identified relationship with the Creator and those of fellow beings as the basis of human existence.
Presenting the 11th Founder’s Day lecture of the institution, Dr. Lateef Abbas, stressed that relationship with other beings, including humans and animals constitutes good relations such as humility, patience, perseverance and equity.
Dr. Abbas emphasised that Crescent University is charting a right course in these areas through its vision of not only becoming an academic excellence but good moral conduct promoter.
Abbas, who is from the Department of Arabic and Islamic Studies, University of Ibadan (UI) advocated that “knowledge acquisition must not be devoid of morality as the two are like Siamese twins that cannot be separated.”
The tripartite event witnessed the 11th Founder’s Day proper (culminating in the 83rd birthday of the proprietor, Prince Bola Ajibola) inauguration of friends of Crescent and the launch of a book titled “Fundamentals of Politics and Governance” edited by Prof. Dhikru Yagboyaju, Prof Chris Ojukwu, Prof Masud Salawu and Dr. Ebenezer Oni.
Welcoming the Friends of the institution, Ajibola said Crescent University has achieved God’s purpose for it while adding that the school had just opened a hall of fame to some of the exceptional products who made a first class in their undergraduate level and also went to universities abroad to clinch distinction at Master’s level.
According to him, “This is the selling point of our university because our products are the success that we celebrate, through the hall of fame; the yet unborn generations would continue to celebrate the university ambassadors.
While commending donors for their support to the institution, Ajibola enjoined well meaning individuals and groups to join “Friends of Crescent “to further propel the wheel of progress of the university.
