The Management of University of Ilorin (UNILORIN) has denied reports going round that the Vice Chancellor of the institution, “suddenly cancelled and stripped grandaunts off their gown.”
Mr. Kunle Akogun, Director of Corporate Affairs of the institution, said: “Hiding behind the faceless name, Tijani Faraday, these mischief makers took to social media last weekend in a fruitless attempt to rubbish the image of the university while maligning the character of its Vice Chancellor, Prof. Sulyman Age Abdulkareem”.
This purported cancellation reportedly occurred during the 4th induction/oath-taking ceremony of the Pharmacy graduates of the university over the weekend.
“But every right-thinking person would and should know that in the operations of a university system, no VC has such power to cancel outright the graduation ceremony of students,” Akogun added.
