9th Convocation ceremony of Ajayi Crowther Univers

The 9th Convocation ceremony of Ajayi Crowther University will hold on Friday October 13th, 2017. The date was approved by the Governing Council in the meeting it held in the Council chambers of the university on Wednesday September 6, 2017. The event which previously held in November was changed to enable graduating students attend the event given that the previous dates coincides with the time graduants are called to camp for national youth service. The situations thus made many of them stay away from the event. The activities for this year will commence on October 6 and end with the convocation.
