The Chancellor of the university, Pastor Williams Kumuyi, advised the graduates to nurture the seeds of greatness through discipline “Everyone is created with a seed of greatness, but you need to nurture it. Today I am delighted to watch the seeds on this campus bustling with life and beauty. I watched many of these industry-ready graduates march around the campus with the energy of the youths,” stated Kumuyi.
The Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Obinna Nkemjika, commended the AUL’s management led by the Vice-Chancellor, for their energy, passion and focus in driving the university’s administration which led to the approval of four new courses by the National University Commission (NUC).
Nkemjika said, “The seriousness and rigorous manner in which this vision was pursued with your management team, no doubt, led to NUC’s approval of the four professional degree programmes in Architecture, Law, Medical Laboratory Science and Nursing Sciences.”
The Pro-Chancellor, Prof Steven Timipa Odi-Owei, described the convocation as a mark of success for the graduates.
