270 students in 14 programmes were matriculated into the Edwin Clark University, Kiagbodo; Thursday, Jan. 26 .

Persons from all walks of life including parents and guardians, friends and well wishers of the fresh men swelled the auditorium to capacity.

The oath of allegiance was administered on the students by the University Registrar, Mrs. Rosalyn Egborge followed by the symbolic signing of the matriculation register by 14 students representing the 14 programmes currently run by the university.

In his address, the Vice Chancellor of the university, Prof T.O. Olagbemiro prayed God to see the 270 matriculated students through their course of study.

He reiterated that the university was licensed by the NUC in March 2015 as the 60th private university in Nigeria.

He said for the period of its existence, the university has recorded significant achievements but enthused that they will not rest on their oars in ensuring that they soar to higher heights.

He warned the matriculated students that the university will not tolerate any act that does not conform to decency and advised them to remain committed to the oath of allegiance they took.

He urged them to put their absolute trust in God and to stay away from sin.

“Talk to God and walk with God, attend all classes and be organized. Plan your time well, take good notes in class and read for a purpose. Be successful in class by being punctual to class and participating in all class activities”

The VC assured parents of the university’s readiness and capability to groom the students and urged the parents to also plat their part.

He congratulated Chief E.K. Clark for his foresight in investing in university education and reassured parents and guardians “by the time the students graduate from this university they would be counted among the best in character and learning.”
