EDUCATION: President Jonathan & Education Minister Ignore University of Lagos convocation


The University of Lagos convocation ended on Thursday with President Goodluck Jonathan and his education minister, Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau, shunning the three-day event. The two also did not send representatives to the occasion. Jonathan is the Visitor to the university. The President during the Democracy Day broadcast on May 29, 2013, had changed the name of the university to the Moshood Abiola University, an action that attracted a barrage of criticisms.
The public outrage forced the Jonathan-led administration to reverse the name change some months later.
However, the university’s 2013/2014 convocation, which began on Tuesday with award of degrees on 3,104 students, came to a climax on Thursday with the conferment of honorary doctorate degrees on three eminent Nigerians.
The honourees are former Minister of Defence, Lt. Gen. Theophilus Danjuma; renowned technocrat, Deacon Gamaliel Onosode, and the General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye.
