Valley View University Holds Its 30th Congregation and Honours His Excellency Ademola Nurudeen Jackson Adeleke, Governor of Osun – State, Nigeria

Valley View University (VVU), on December 17, 2023, graduated one thousand three hundred and ten (1,310) students, comprising one hundred and twenty-two (122) post-graduates and one thousand, one hundred and eighty-eight (1188) undergraduates from various academic disciplines. 

The ceremony was held under the theme: “Imparting Excellence, Integrity and Service: Nurturing Ethical Leaders in a Changing World”. The congregation was graced by an array of dignitaries.

Professor William Kofi Koomson, the Vice-Chancellor of the University, congratulated and admonished the graduates not to succumb to circumstances and societal pressures to cut short their dreams but to be determined and turn challenges into opportunities. 

The Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Honourable Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, the Guest Speaker for the occasion, called on the graduates to explore and use the knowledge acquired to create more opportunities and be innovative to benefit society. He reiterated his stance that graduates should be creative and not look out for white-collar jobs. “I entreat you to be the change you want to see and be”, he added.

Honourable Agyapong pledged to adopt the University’s Agriculture Department and make it a well-stocked Department with modern equipment while supporting VVU to establish an Agricultural Engineering School. The astute politician promised to donate two tractors to the Department within the first quarter of the year 2024. He said this will serve as a springboard to push forth his vision to create opportunities for the youth in the agriculture value chain.

The highlight of the 30th congregation was the conferment of an honorary doctorate award to the Special Guest of Honour, H. E. Ademola Nurudeen Jackson Adeleke, Governor of Osun State, Nigeria, with Doctor of Humane Letters, Honoris Causa, for his philanthropic works and support to education in diverse ways in his State and beyond.

In his speech, the Governor mentioned that Africa was in dire need of  Ethical Leaders hence, “To achieve excellence in Public Leadership, leaders must see their offices as a call to duty to serve and not to be served”.

The University also presented special prizes and awards to deserving students. Ms Alandu Nancy Maaseneh, a Bachelor of Education in Mathematics graduate, emerged as the overall best-graduating student.

Sponsors of the ceremony included BNA Chartered Accountants, Ekumfi Pure Juice and the Ghana Armed Forces Band.
