Majority of the students that fainted have been confirmed to be 100L students who are yet to be get addicted to the stress of a higher institution, especially a public one. The students who fainted were immediately rushed to the University health centre and they have been confirmed to be in a good state of health.

OLABISI Onabanjo University (OOU), Ago-Iwoye, has graduated 43 First Class graduates including an overall best ever medical student, Dr. Saheed Alabi.

The varsity also produced 41 Ph.D graduates, 379 masters degree holders, 110 postgraduate diploma, 811 second class upper, 2,319 second class lower and 1192 third class, just as it recorded 20 passes in its combined 2014/15, 2015/16 convocation ceremony.

The Vice Chancellor, OOU, Professor Saburi Adesanya, who disclosed this ahead of its 35th anniversary and convocation slated for January 31, also said that 5,809 will graduate. Graduands with passes Adesanya said the graduands were the first set of students that were admitted in 2012/13 academic session, saying they were graduating as at when due. The VC, while speaking on the results of the students, said the graduands with passes may be the last people that would obtain such results in OOU.

According to him, in future, students that are not doing well in their chosen disciplines, may be advised to move to other areas where they stand a chance of finishing with better grades than passes. He said the action was in line with the National Universities Commission, NUC, standard which has abolished the pass degrees.

However, the VC disclosed that the varsity’s Senate has approved that a special degree award be conferred on the overall best graduating student, Dr. Saheed Alabi, from the Obafemi Awolowo College of Health Sciences of OOU who had distinctions in seven courses out of 10 in the College of Medicine.

He said “In the anal of the institution, nobody has ever had such sterling result. Also, Senate has approved the introduction of new programmes such as Bsc. Nursing, Veterinary Medicine, Estate Management, Building Technology, Radiology and Music as part of growth.”

He said the facilities and manpower for the new programmes were already on ground while consultation was ongoing with the NUC to commence teaching of those courses by next academic session.  Religious Knowledge (Education) and History (Education), he said, had not been accredited by the NUC.

He blamed the problem on low patronage of the three disciplines by students but assured that the university has started putting measures in place to attract more students in future.
