The Vice Chancellor of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko, Ondo State, Nigeria, Professor Igbekele Ajibefun, said the institution’s students have imbibed its tradition of excellence.
He described AAUA students as good students whose ways and deeds reflect the University’s culture of excellence and distinctions.
Prof. Ajibefun said, “While some other students, nowadays, are wont to cut corners and settle for the less, our students have the virtues of discipline, excellence and good character.
“We have very good students who have imbibed the culture of AAUA; students of sound mind, who have continued to make the University proud in the various spheres. Our students are doing good and great in all areas. “
The VC made the comments, penultimate week, while featuring on Radio AAUA 90.3 FM, saying, “Ajasin Varsity has a culture of discipline, excellence, and that students who are trained therein are instilled with these traits”.
“AAUA has a culture of discipline, culture of excellence and good character. A student who is trained in our University is expected to reflect these, and this explains why our students are doing very well when we release them to the world. AAUA graduates carry the sheen of the University wherever they go to.
“For instance, the Nigerian Law School has the consistent imprints of AAUA graduates and so it is in other sectors where our students have been enlisted. Lots of our Alumni have distinguished themselves.”
Prof. Ajibefun, who rated AAUA’s academic programmes high, said the University was not relenting in upping its standards as it continues to review and improve on all areas of academic dealings.
He attributed the successes of the University to the commitment of the stakeholders, saying, “The University has achieved good progress as a result of the commitment of the various stakeholders. Every stakeholder is important, including the students and the staff. The workers are a very important stakeholder in the University community, the same way the students are equally important. Without the students, there would be no need for staffing, and without staff, there will be no hands to train the students.
“Our members of staff are a great asset that the university has. Both the academic and the non-academic staff are putting in their best to ensure that we produce competitive and comparable students.
The staff have been cooperating with the Management and that is why the University’s academic calendar has been stable.” VC said.
