UNILAG Makes Changes For Golden 50th Convocation Ceremonies
The University of Lagos (UNILAG) has confirmed that all is set for its 50th convocation ceremonies which are scheduled to kickstart on the 19th of February, 2019.
According to the Vice-Chancellor of the School, Prof Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, the ceremonies will last for four days, thus coming to an end on the 22nd of February.
However, he disclosed that there will be slight changes to the golden convocation programme as this would be different from others held in the past.
Whilst speaking to NAN, Prof Ogundipe said: “This time, we will make a few changes and introduce a few items to make the ceremonies lively and memorable.
“For instance, the convocation venue will move from the usual multi-purpose hall known as Jelili Omotola Hall to the main auditorium known as Ade Ajayi Hall.
“But we will soon come up with a line-up of events to kick-start the convocation.
“The events normally begin with a convocation media briefing, followed by the convocation lecture, among others.”
Furthermore, the UNILAG VC revealed that the institution is working arduously towards rebranding itself especially in the areas of research, innovation, incubation and entrepreneurship.
