The 14th convocation ceremony of Nnamdi Azikiwe University (UNIZIK), Awka, Anambra State lived up to a practical demonstration of the university motto, ‘’Discipline, Self Reliance and Excellence’’.
But the main attraction was the reward for academic excellence which the Vice-Chancellor, Prof Charles Esimone thrilled the excited graduands to no end. During the award ceremony held at the university auditorium, the VC told the excited best graduating students that a reward system awaits them for doing the UNIZIK and their parents proud.
Esimone said the best graduating students apart from their being retained by the university after their compulsory national youth service, will also enjoy overseas training.
He promised that there will be postgraduate training for them to further enhance their capacity and add value to the system as well as help to train and nurture students under their watch in the nearest future.
The VC said the decision for the training abroad was to ensure the students were further equipped to remain relevant in their various fields of study. He explained that the award was an opportunity to celebrate the best in the past academic year as well as inspire others to work hard and excel in their field of endeavour.
