The 10th Matriculation Ceremony was held at the Mini Convocation Arena of the Institution, with the new students taking their matriculation oath.

“I am delighted to announce to you the outstanding and excellent performance of the University in all NUC Accreditation exercise so far conducted. A total of 39 programmes in the six colleges so far presented to NUC for accreditation were accredited.


“The breakdown shows that 33 programmes were given full accreditation, while six had interim accreditation,” he remarked.

While acknowledging the support of all stakeholders towards the success of the accreditation, he thanked the Visitor and Governor of Kwara State, Alhaji AbdulFatah Ahmed, for the feat.

Noting that the University has maintained uninterrupted academic calendar since inception, the Vice-Chancellor highlighted KWASU’s achievements in Entrepreneurship education and other programmes run by the Institution.

“Our University provides entrepreneurial training through our Centre for Entrepreneurship. With its vision “to produce tomorrow’s global business leaders today,” this centre is persistent in teaching innovation, building opportunities, discovering and cultivating creative potentials in our students, thereby laying the foundation for a life-long learning to face the challenges of the 21st Century globe,” he stated.

Na’Allah recalled that the centre was among the first 20 entrepreneurship centres in Africa recognised by African Development Bank in December, 2012, stressing that the new students would be trained to become entrepreneurs, as they would be required to create their own companies and begin to create wealth even before their graduation.

He stated that the Institution aims not to only create conducive environment for intellectual growth and personal development of its students, but also to facilitate visible and sustainable cooperation, growth, development and transformation of its host communities and throughout Nigeria.
