Congrats!!! Bola Tinubu Bags Honorary Doctorate Degree at University of Abuja

Feb 28, 2016


Former governor of Lagos state, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has been conferred with an honorary doctorate degree at the Combined Convocation of the University of Abuja (UniAbuja).

NAN reports that former Vice-President, Dr Alex Ekwueme, former Chief Justices of Nigeria, Justice Idris Kutigi and Maryam Aloma Mukhtar, were also conferred with honorary doctorate degrees.

A total 25,878 students were awarded various degrees at the 15th to 20th combined convocation of
the institution on Saturday.

Ekwueme was said to be unavoidably absent as he was represented by his daughter, Mrs Chidi Onyemelukwe.

In his acceptance speech on behalf of the other recipients of honorary degrees, Tinubu thanked the institution’s authority for deeming them worthy of the award. He said that UniAbuja symbolised national unity and epitomised a collective desire to build a strong nation.

“The institution must realise its important position in the educational salvation of our youth and the rejuvenation of our nation.
“I urge a continuous commitment to quality and excellence.
“The university, numbered among the new generation universities, must strive in the tradition of groundbreaking scholarship and research.
“In spite of the challenges of infrastructure and funding, the university must not compromise its academic standard,” he said.

The highlight of the event was the investiture of Alhaji Shehu Idris, the Emir of Zazzau, as the Chancellor of the institution.
