Varsity names new pro-chancellor at founder’s day celebration
The Founder, Justice Bola Ajibola who announced this during the investiture of the Emir also used the occasion to restate the institution’s commitment to continuously uphold the moral and academic excellence that have since defined its existence.
Ajibola warned that education devoid of morality and fear of God portends danger for the society, hence the reason why Crescent University has been emphasising “content of moral rectitude and character”.
He said, “We are glad that this resolve has paid off time and again in the kind of graduates which this institution has produced over the years. They have made us proud, and indeed, they have made themselves and their parents proud by excelling both in industry and postgraduate studies within and outside Nigeria.”
Ajibola also used the occasion to reel out recent achievements by staff and students of the university. He cited the feat of the 73-year old king who got a degree in Law from the university and has now been admitted into the Law school as well as the varsity’s senior lecturer who has just been appointed as a first class King in Otta, Ogun State.
The newly installed Pro-chancellor and Chairman of Council said his appointment would see to the enhancement of varsity’s professed mission statement as “centre of academic and moral excellence”.
“When I was contacted by an old friend on whether I would not mind being installed as the new Pro- chancellor of Crescent University, Abeokuta, I asked-‘is that not the university of Bola Ajibola? It is not a case of if I would be; it is a case of when the investiture would be.’ I am most honoured to be considered for this and as long as I am alive and kicking, I will always give it my best,” Adamu said.
Speaking on the topic, “The essence of morals in education”, the guest speaker, Prof. Muhammad Sani Lugga advocated the merging of education and morality, saying both are interwoven to live a purposeful life.
