Olanipekun stated that Oyebanji should be a source of encouragement to the fresh students that their future is also bright.
The Vice Chancellor however warned the students against any act that could retard their future career or destroy image of the university.
The Newly admitted students
He also urged the newly admitted to be focused on their studies as leaders of tomorrow, “potential Governors, Ministers, Business icons, Professors and successful Professionals”.
Professor Olanipekun gave the charge at the matriculation ceremonies held for candidates admitted into EKSU Sandwich Degree Programme for 2022 contact session and those admitted into the Part -Time Programmes of the institution.
The VC also noted that the part time program is not different from full time program except the mode.
The ceremonies were held separately at the university campus in Ado Ekiti.
In his address, the Vice Chancellor expressed delight that “EKSU alumni are making waves in their chosen careers all over the globe”
Professor Olanipekun urged the students to “abide by the contents of the Matriculation Oath,” adding that they should shun all acts inimical to good conduct.
While congratulating the fresh students, the Vice Chancellor clarified that “Part- Time degree was not in any way inferior to regular degree programme.”
