The Rector of the institution, speaking at the institution’s pre-convocation press conference, Dr. Samuel Oluyinka Sogunro said: “The choice of these royal fathers were due to the role of peace making they play in the society.” Sogunro specifically pointed out the virtue of humility in the Ooni of Ife, Oba Ogunwusi, adding that since he was crowned, he never prides himself as a paramount ruler.
“The Ooni has exemplified true leadership quality as he continues to play a mediating role among the young and old in the society. He is the epitome of a true leader, a society should seek to have,” he said. Sogunro who disclosed the Lagos State Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode will grace the ceremony, where these distinguished Nigerians would be honoured, added that a total of 8,519 graduands would be graduating.
