He said OAU placed much premium on the welfare, success and progress of its students, “hence the urgent need to graduate our students whose results have been approved by the University Senate, almost immediately after the suspension of strike by ASUU.”
A Professor of International Relations who is also the chairman of the university’s ceremonial committee, Charles Ugochukwu-Ukeje, said OAU remained committed to its core mandate of producing human capital for the nation.
