Also, 10,417 second-class upper degrees, 29,220 second-class lower division, 3,776 third-class degrees and 29 pass degrees were awarded. Speaking at the ceremony, IMSU Vice Chancellor, Professor Adaobi Obasi, described the convocation as the recognition and celebration of the academic achievements of the graduates.
He expressed the hope that the graduates would be inspired to make greater exploits and valuable contributions to the society.
In his speech, the Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha charged the graduates to develop their talents and contribute their quota to the society as jobs were not readily available. He also urged the lecturers to research widely in order to improve the quality of graduates turned out each year.
Governor Okorocha, however, reaffirmed his determination to ensure that the university gained a pride of place among the universities in the country while describing education as “life and the greatest gift to any child.”
