The Alake of Egba land, Oba Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo III will be conferred with an honorary doctorate degree by the Alex Ekwueme Federal University Ndufu-Alike Ikwo, Ebonyi state, AE-FUNAI, during the institution’s third Convocation on December 18.

Speaking during a pre-convocation press briefing, Vice Chancellor (VC) of the institution, Prof Chinedu Nwajiuba said the revered Royal Father, who is also the University’s Chancellor would be conferred with a Honorary Doctorate Degree in Management.

The VC said 355 students would graduate at the event.

Another distinguished Nigerian to be honoured is Prof Ihechukwu Madubuike (Doctor of Letters) for his contribution to the development of education in Nigeria as former Education Minister during the Shehu Shagari administration.

The VC said: “For the first time, we shall be awarding honorary doctoral degrees and the first will be our chancellor His Royal Majesty Oba Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo III CFR, the Alake of Egba land. He will be conferred with Honorary Doctorate Degree in Management.

“The second person will be Prof Ihechukwu Madubuike. Prof Madubike was Minister of Education in 1979 during the Shagari era and I think he is the oldest Minster of Education in Nigeria. He became a Minister quite early in life. He has a PhD in French from a University in France and he was himself an academic and we thought it wise to honour him with a Doctor of letters”, he said.

Giving details about the graduating students, the VC said 15 had first class, 188 second class uppoer, 145 made second class lower, and seven, third class.

“They are from four faculties; faculty of humanities as the least 44, faculty of basic medicine 52, faculty of science 101, faculty of management and social science 138. Those are the four faculties that we have the graduates,” he said.

Don not get stuck at the well of argument. Let God be your vindicator. Let Him fight your battles. He will vindicate you better than you can vindicate yourself.
