Management of the Afe Babalola University, Ado Ekiti (ABUAD), has awarded first class degrees and automatic employment to no fewer than 72 graduating students of the institution.

They are among 1,042 students that obtained various degrees at the university’s sixth convocation ceremonies to be concluded on Saturday, October 20, 2018.

At a pre-convocation press conference held in ABUAD yesterday, the Vice Chancellor, Professor Michael Ajisafe, hinged the high turnout of first class graduates on the institution’s excellent, rigorous and qualitative academic prowess.

He also hinted that the founder of the university, Aare Afe Babalola, will doll out N250, 000 and a plot of land each to all the graduating students of Agriculture to start their farming projects.

Ajisafe said the university would also confer Doctor of Letters (LLD) honourary degrees on the former Minister of Agriculture and President, African Development Bank (AfDB), Akinwumi Adesina and Chief Executive Officer of Channels Television, John Momoh, in appreciation of their contributions to national development.

He said the deserving personalities were chosen after strict compliance with the 2012 Keffi declaration.
