No fewer than ten out of 180 graduands came out with first class degree at the combined fourth and fifth convocation of Veritas University, Abuja.The institution’s vice chancellor, Prof Michael Kwanashie, who disclosed this during the ceremony said the 10 graduands, have distinguished themselves both in terms of quality and performance.
The vice chancellor of the Catholic-owned institution reiterated the university’s commitment to providing all round quality education to Nigerians, especially the poor and assured that they would not compromise on standard despite the increase in its running cost as the church has provided the necessary subsidy to cushion the effect of the rising cost.
On his part, the institution’s Chancellor and Archbishop of Abuja Archdiocese, Cardinal John Onayeikan restated that education is key to development.
He stated that ;
“Education remains the royal path to personal and national development. No amount of investment in education is a waste. We must continue to invest in the sector as parents, organization and government.
“Let me reiterate that education is not an end but a means, it is not the filling of a bucket but the enkindling of a fire or the lighting of a candle”
