In his part, The representative of the Vice-Chancellor of Unilorin, spoke about the measures they have been putting in place to ensure postgraduate students at Unilorin have a smooth learning experience and do not exceed the designated time for their programs.

“We welcome you to one of the best universities in this age. If you play your part as you are supposed to, we can ensure you will finish on time. This administration is working on that.”

“This administration will ensure that your work is published, both at the Master’s and Ph.D. levels. Your program aims to solve societal problems, and that’s one reason you have to get your papers published. This administration will also ensure you are globally relevant,” he added before declaring the floor open for orientation.

The Dean of the Postgraduate School at Unilorin, Professor Bamidele Victor Owoyele, encouraged the fresh postgraduate students to focus on their purpose. He said it takes two to tango, and if the postgraduate school is doing its best to ensure your swift learning, you should also give your best.
