Edo - A total of 22, 892 students on Friday graduated from Ambrose Alli University (AAU) Ekpoma, Edo during the 18th convocation of the institution.

The students were those who graduated in the last five academic sessions from 2006/2007 to 2010/2012.

Sixteen students graduated with first class degrees, 1, 733 obtained second class degree (upper division) while 14, 724 students obtained second class degree (lower division).

Five thousand, six hundred and seventeen (5,617) students obtained third class degree while 802 students graduated with pass degrees.

One hundred and sixty two (162) students were awarded Diploma Certificates at the convocation.

The institution’s Vice Chancellor, Prof. Cordelia Agbebaku promised that the university would uphold the academic standard for which it had been known.

She said that the management would not relent in its efforts to provide a conducive environment for staff and students to excel academically.

Agbebaku assured the staff that the problem of office accommodation would soon be a thing of the past as work on the new administrative block reached advance stage.

``I wish to place it on record the massive support this university has received from the state governor, Mr Adams Oshiomhole in his determined effort to make the university second to none.

``Specifically construction work on the administrative building hitherto abandoned must be mentioned.

``Work is at an advanced stage toward early completion of the project, which on completion will accommodate the Vice-Chancellor’s office, the registry and bursary departments.

The building will also add to the aesthetic value as well as ease the accommodation problem facing the university,” the VC said.
