The outgoing Vice-Chancellor of the Kwara State University (KWASU), Malete, Professor AbdulRasheed Na’Allah, has described KWASU as the only Institution in Nigeria with vibrant academic calendar.
Na’Allah, represented by Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Administration), Professor Sakah Mahmud, stated this at the 9th Annual Open House Ceremony of the University, held at the Mini Convocation Arena, on Thursday, July 18, 2019.
He said since its inception in 2009, the Institution has not compromised the sacrosanctity of its calendar, as academic session always begins in August and ends in May, the following year.
“You come in for a four-year or five-year programme, you graduate in record time,” he stated.
The Institution’s helmsman added that early grading and release of students’ results is an uncompromised tradition at KWASU, stressing that the Institution is reputable for its unique programmes in the country.
Na’Allah further remarked that KWASU provides conducive and safe environment for its students to learn and excel in life, adding that the Institution has zero tolerance for indiscipline, examination malpractice, cultism, and other social iniquities.
He said the essence of the Open House was to showcase the University and provide its prospective students with information to make the right choice, assuring that the Institution would continue to consolidate on its achievements.
Earlier, the Convener of the annual programme and Coordinator, Centre for Community Development, Mr. Lawal Olohungbebe, had underscored the importance of the event to the University’s pursuit of academic excellence, noting that it provided the prospective students, their teachers, parents, and guardians, firsthand information about what KWASU does and stands for.
Major highlights of this year's event were presentations by representatives of different colleges, departments, centres, and units, as well as the University Library and Admissions Office.
The participants, including students and their teachers, were drawn from different secondary schools in the state.
