Veritas University Graduates 180 While 6 Bag First Class

No fewer than six students will on today graduate with First Class Degree in the combined fourth and fifth convocation of Veri­tas University, Abuja.
Vice Chancellor (VC) of the university, Prof Michael Kwanashie, who disclosed this on Tuesday while fielding questions from newsmen at the side­line of the convocation lecture of the institution in Abuja, said the six students are among the 180 that will be graduating from the varsity in the convocation.

He said, “We are gradu­ating six First Class and I can tell you, if you meet any of them outside, you will know there is no doubt in the quality of our products.”
The VC of the Catho­lic-owned institution said the university whose aim is to provide all round qual­ity education to Nigerians, especially the poor, will not compromise on its standard despite the astronomical in­crease in the cost of running the institution as the church has provided the necessary subsidy.
Speaking on the theme of the lecture, ‘We the Crea­tures and the Lord of all Creation,” the convocation Guest Lecturer and former Governor of Cross River State, Mr Donald Duke, said the human species continue to exhibit lack of knowledge in the issues of God.

“In this wise, ants, crea­tures we dismiss and derid­ingly describe as the least of creatures in creation have proven to be smarter and more attune with the will of the Almighty than the hu­man species”, he said.

Relating most of the po­litical events in the country and other parts of the world, especially the emergence of Yahaya Bello as the Gover­nor of Kogi State and the election of Barack Obama and Donald Trump as Presi­dents of United States as messages from God.

Duke said, “Man is too flighty to observe his envi­ronment and make sense of it.”
He challenged the gradu­ating students not to trifle the great work of God by be­ing mere onlookers, adding that they must strive to be change agents
