It is my pleasure to welcome you all to this momentous occasion of the 13th Matriculation Ceremony of the Federal University Oye Ekiti (FUOYE) as we commence the 2023/2024 Academic Session with a new lease of life.

I am particularly delighted and grateful to God for witnessing another Matriculation Ceremony of this illustrious Citadel of Learning. Of the 12 Universities in our generation, FUOYE remains the First and the best among its peers

Speaking further on how best the fresh students could achieve their lofty dreams and ambitions, Prof. Fasina urged the new students to eschew violent and immoral acts while on campus. He said: “ As you embark on this interesting but challenging adventure in pursuit of knowledge for self-development and the advancement of humanity, I urge you all to seize every positive opportunity to contribute to FUOYE and Nigeria’s development. On our part, we will always endeavour to provide you with an enabling environment to actualise your potentials. We will not fail in our duty of care to you, as a University. But you must work collaboratively and sacrificially with us to make this happen. In making this commitment, we are not oblivious of certain extraneous variables outside our own control.

As partners in progress, I urge the matriculating students of today to honour their matriculation oath and attendant obligations, most notably the payment of all approved fees and registration. Without these essential first steps, you cannot fully actualise your studentship.

In between, respect our rules and regulations and be diligent in your studies. Eschew all forms of social vices, including cultism, sexual harassment, Advance Fee Fraud and Internet Fraud, aka 419, examination malpractices, indecent dressing, etc. Our University has zero tolerance for these and related social vices. Always consult the Students’ Handbook for guidance. I wish you all the best.
Prof. Fasina charged leaders in various capacities to ensure Nigeria is their priority besides personal and selfish interests.

He added that: “We must learn to be diligent and focused as Nigerians and shun sentiment and unnecessary emotion . The nations who became great today were focused. And we should show the whole world that we are giants of Africa. The only way to do this is to understand each other and work together in a harmonious way.”
