The authorities of the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN) say President Bola Tinubu will on October 23 inaugurate some projects its administration recently completed in the institution.


NAN reports that Kunle Akogun, the university’s director of corporate affairs, in a statement, said UNILORIN will be combining its 37th and 38th convocation ceremonies on October 23.

The university’s director of corporate affairs said Tinubu will, on that same day, inaugurate some projects.

Akogun said the ceremonies will begin on Friday with a Special Jumaat Service, followed by an inter-denominational church service on Sunday.


“Both the graduates of the 2020/2021 and 2021/2022 academic sessions will be receiving their first degrees, postgraduate degrees, and diplomas,” he said.

“The programme is full of ceremonies over three days, held at the university’s Main Auditorium from Friday to Oct. 23.”

The UNILORIN spokesperson said some of the highlights of the event include the presentation of a drama titled ‘Jeong Do-Jeon (The Clash of Power)’.


”It is a Korean drama written by Jung Hyun-min, and it will be held at the Performing Arts Theatre of the university,” he added.

“A major highlight of the ceremonies is the Convocation Lecture to be delivered by Nigerian US-based Professor of History, Tayo Falola, on Friday.

“The distinguished historian who lectures at the Department of History, University of Texas at Austin in the US will be speaking on ‘Modernity, Modernisation, and Values’.

“This will be followed immediately by the graduation of the 2020/2021 final year students of four-year and five-year academic programmes at the same venue.”


Akogun said Saturday would be convocation day II for the conferment of degrees and honours on all the 2021/2022 final-year students of four-year and five-year academic programmes.

He added that on October 23, there will be the “grand finale” with the graduation of the 2020/2021 and 2021/2022 six-year programmes as well as postgraduate students.

Akogun assured that the authorities of the university would leave no stone unturned to ensure the events went hitch-free.
