University of Ilorin Graduates 5,383 Students
The Vice Chancellor of University of Ilorin, Prof Is-haq Oloyede, on Monday, disclosed that the University graduated 5,383 persons in various disciplines in the 2011/2012 academic session.
The vice-chancellor said that the Senate approved 4,686 first degrees, 679 post- graduate degrees, and 18 diplomas from the Institute of Education.
The Faculty of Science recorded 11 first class graduates, while the Faculties of Agriculture, Business, and Social Sciences produced seven first class graduates each.
Oloyede also denied that he planned to hold a “special convocation” to enable him to preside over the graduation ceremony before the end of his tenure.
“As a matter of tradition, the university does not celebrate individuals but collective achievements,” he said.
“Whoever is the new vice-chancellor, no matter how new he is on the seat, would statutorily preside over the convocation ceremonies.”
He urged members of the university community to co-operate with the Vice- Chancellor-designate, Prof AbdulGaniyu Ambali, and other principal officers.
He also advised staff and students to always have a positive disposition toward the institution, so that it would continue to excel among other institutions.
