“In 13 years of our existence, we have recorded many “firsts” in the annals of university education in Nigeria. We remain the first University to mount a conversion programme for HND holders in Nigeria, that many other Universities have taken a cue.

“We are setting a pace to have the most sophisticated Engineering Complex, the first halls of residence built to accommodate students that compare to hostels in developed climes. Many firsts will follow as we step up our planning and research activities to settle and unsettle theories in academic research and findings. To be the best University in Africa is a vision set to be accomplished,” Ayorinde assured.

Notable Nigerians awarded with the University honorary degrees, honoris causa, at the convocation, were retired judge, Hon. Justice David Adesuyi Olateru-Olagbegi; COREN Registrar, Prof. Joseph Odigure; and Businessman, Mr Foluso Falaye.
