The Atmosphere of the Obafemi Awolowo University Ile-ife was undoubtedly ceremonious between Wednesday, 7th December 2016 and Friday, 9th December 2016 as the University conducted her 42nd Convocation ceremony.

  The programme began with the conferment of Diplomas in the early hours of Wednesday and ended on Friday with the conferment of Postgraduate diplomas and degrees. In total, 6827 students were graduated from the University with only 66 of them graduating with a first class degree.

Several dignitaries were invited for the annual ceremony, amongst whom was the Visitor of the University, President Muhammadu Buhari, who was represented by the Executive Secretary of the the Nigerian Universities Commission, Professor Adamu Rasheed. In his speech, Professor Adamu encouraged the graduates to endeavour to develop entrepreneurial skills as the problem of unemployment seemed to be getting worse by the day. He also reassured the audience that the current administration was doing its best to provide enough jobs. However, its efforts needed to be complemented by the Private sector.

The Acting Vice-Chancellor also in his speech admonished the graduates to continue to be agents of change carrying their integrity and honour and help tackle the current challenges of the Nation.

As was expected, several students who had outstanding academic performances were awarded at the ceremony with the best graduating student being Oni Babajide David, who graduated with a CGPA of 4.86 out of 5.00 from the Faculty of Agriculture. However, the awardee with the highest number of awards was Akinbowa Adeolu, who graduated from the Faculty of Clinical Sciences and received 12 awards.

Also things got somewhat dampened when Elebuibon Bibilari, a would-have-been first class student of the Faculty of Arts was invited for an award as an unusual silence announced his death. The Public Relations Officer of the School, Mr Abiodun Olanrewaju, then called for a minute silence in honour of his memory.

Several other events also occurred in the course of the 3-day ceremony: The Convocation play; Ijaye, which was directed by Wale Ogunyemi, The Convocation lecture delivered by Professor Aina amongst other events.
