Afe Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti, ABUAD,literally rolled out the drums last Friday (January 4, 2019) to celebrate the 9th Anniversary of the commencement of uninterrupted Academic works in the 21st Century University which has earned itself a name in the league of world Class Universities, its short history of existence notwithstanding.

It has become part of the luxuriant history of the university that it commenced Academic works on Monday, January 4, 2010 with 240 students but today has more than 7,000 students after it has graduated 2,121 students since its maiden Convocation Ceremonies on October 21, 2013.

The early morning brief but impressive celebration was a bold from the blues for many, including the Founder & Chancellor, Aare AfeBabalola, who aptly described is as an ambush by the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Michael Ajisafe, and some Management Staff. All the same, it still turned out to be a memorable outing which concentrated on gratitude to God for his enduring mercies and appreciation for the Babalola family for setting the tone and the tenor of quality and functional education in this clime.

Celebrating the 9th anniversary of the commencement of uninterrupted Academic works in a university in Africa is no mean achievement considering the persistent and deafening drum beats of strike actions and other forms of high velocity disturbances ravaging the average African University, particularly since the Military made an incursion into governance in most African countries in the 60’s.

After being received with the University Anthem at his Car Park, an obviously surprised but elated Babalola, with his elegant wife, Yeye Aare Modupe Babalola, walked briskly through a Guard of Honour into the Foyer of College of Sciences where Babalola’s office is domiciled and which had been peopled by many of the university staff with an imposing celebration cake virtually assaulting the face of whoever entered the Foyer.

Ajisafe, the Vice Chancellor, set the ball rolling by recalling how the university commenced Academic works with 240 students on Monday, January 4, 2010. He stressed that apart from the fact that the university now has more than 7,000 students from all the 36 states of the Federation, including the Federal Capital Territory, the university has also overshot its expectations and overtaken many universities which are several decades older than ABUAD.
