Out of 1,107 graduates From Babcock Made First Class
Babcock University (BU) in Ilishan-Remo, Ogun State, on Sunday held its 10th convocation ceremony with the graduation of 1,370 students cutting across its Schools of Law and Security Studies, Education and Humanities, Science and Technology, Public and Allied Health, among others.
The university, which for the First time in its almost two decades of establishment graduated postgraduate students, recorded a total of 61 First Class grades while 1,107 and 202 recorded Second Class (upper and lower divisions) respectively.
The School of Postgraduate Studies produced 91 of the total figure with 25-year-old Sodipe Opeyemi as the youngest PhD holder.
Oladeinbo Gilbert From the School of Law and Security Studies also emerged the best graduating student, having scored 4.92 cumulative gradient points Out of 5.
In his welcome address, the university’s President and Vice-Chancellor, Prof. James Kayode Makinde, expressed his satisfaction at the rate the institution is developing and thanked its founder - the Seventh Day Adventist Church - for sustaining the dream through both moral and financial supports.
Makinde said: “Our 10- year strategic plan document clearly identifies the direction and purpose of this university’s developmental focus and priorities at every point. From the 6,960 students we had last year, the university’s population has grown to 8,000 this year. And in view of this growth, we have had to improve the quality of our students and to make their stay more memorable.
“The significance of this 10th convocation is in its many successes we have recorded over the years and the presence of our convocation speaker, the renowned American neurosurgeon, Ben Carson and his wife.
“Present here also is Barbara Babcock, granddaughter of David Babcock, pioneer American missionary of the Seventh Day Adventist faith in Nigeria. It is a sign that greater things are happening here.”
