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
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.
