The Vice-Chancellor of the institution, Isaac Adeyemi, made the declaration during a press conference in preparation for the university’s fourth convocation
“Our mandate is to provide quality education and produced graduates that are job creators rather than job seekers. Quality university doesn’t sell certificate, and university that sell certificate is no university,” he stated

The class of degree and number of graduates for this year include: First Class(17), Second Class Upper(76), Second Class Lower(80),Third Class(42) and Pass(2)
“This periodic graduation to higher levels of attainment by our students is in line with the vision and mission of the university,” Mr. Adeyemi stated.
The Vice-Chancellor also said that the university can boast of an excellent record of accreditation of its courses by the National Universities Commission(NUC)
“All our programmes in four of the colleges presented for accreditation over the years were all accredited and there has never been a case of denied accreditation for our courses,” he said.
Speaking on the profile of graduates, he disclosed that the university has produced three sets of graduates that are doing well in their various endeavours
“Because we believe in our products, a fresh set of four of our former students are back in the system as Graduate Assistants, bringing the total number of such to eight. They have since proceeded on their Masters Degree programmes within and outside the country,” he said.
