Gracing the occasion were principal officials of the University, the matriculants, their parents and well-wishers.

The event started with the procession of matriculants into the auditorium before the University Registrar, Mr Adeyinka Arifalo declared the ceremony open.

In his speech, the Vice Chancellor of the University, Prof. Joseph Adeola Fuwape represented by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor Development, Prof. Oguntunde admonished the students to focus on their academic pursuit.

“It is to your utmost advantage to be focused, diligent and law-abiding in your pursuit of academic success. Do not allow distractions to lead you away from your lofty dreams.”

Prof. Fuwape encouraged the students to partake in advancing the University and remain law abiding.

He stressed the University’s zero tolerance to acts capable of disrupting the peace of the University.

Speaking to Campus Journalists, Hamza, a fresh student of Architecture, though happy, said his joy will be complete at the end of his academic sojourn.
