Ajayi Crowther University (ACU), Oyo, will honour Governors Seyi Makinde of Oyo, Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos and Nyesom Wike of Rivers at its 14th convocation ceremony.

The Vice Chancellor, Prof Timothy Adebayo, who disclosed this at a press conference to highlight activities lined up for the ceremony, said a total of 1,547 would receive the Bachelor of Science degrees and 583 postgraduate degrees, including 34 doctorate degrees.

Of the 1,547 first degree holders, 41 bag First Class honours for satisfying the university’s academic requirements laid down by the National Universities Commission (NUC).

The vice chancellor stated that Victor Adetunji, one of the graduates from the law faculty, also bagged first class in the final Law School Examination, while seven others got second-class upper grades.

“The quality of research outputs demonstrated through doctoral theses of Ph.D graduates further underscored the fact that ACU is made up of highly experienced and internationally acclaimed scholars, who are exposed to contemporary thoughts in global scholarships.

“Here, we do not undermine quality and ethical standards in research. By implication, we have successfully produced Ph.D holders that can conveniently compete with their contemporaries across the globe.

“With the quality and quantity of Ph.Ds at this convocation, it is evident that we are growing geometrically as a university, both in excellent scholarship and in population. We have been able to put the university on this journey to greatness and we will always improve, by sustaining excellence and ethical traditions,” he said.
