    About one hundred and eighty students received their first degree certificates during the combined fourth and fifth convocation ceremonies of Veritas University, Abuja (VUNA) held yesterday.

    Speaking at the event in Abuja, the Vice Chancellor of the University, Prof. Michael Kwanashie, said that six of the graduating students bagged First class degrees.

    He said, “We are graduating six first class and I can tell you that if you meet any of them outside, you will know there is no doubt in the quality of our products. In all, we are graduating 180 in the combined convocation ceremonies.”

    The Professor of Economics noted that the Catholic-owned University aims to provide all round quality education to Nigerians, especially the poor, adding that despite the incessant increment in the cost of running the institution; standards would not be compromised as the church is providing the necessary subsidy.

    At a pre-convocation lecture, the former Governor of Cross River State, Mr. Donal Duke, asked Nigerians to exercise more faith in God as a means of solving the myriads of challenges facing the nation.

    Speaking on the theme of the lecture, “We the creatures and the Lord of all creation”, Mr. Duke, lamented the increasing lack of faith by man in the affairs of God.

    The former governor said, “In this wise, ants, creatures we dismiss and describe as the least of creatures in creation have proven to be smarter and more attune with the will of the Almighty than the human specie.”

    The convocation lecture attracted dignitaries like the Chancellor of the University and Archbishop of Abuja Catholic Archdiocese, John Cardinal Onayeikan, Pro-chancellor of the institution, Archbishop Anthony Obinna, Bishop Matthew Hassan Kukah, among others.
