The Vice Chancellor of Osun State University; Professor Labode Popoola has reacted to a question raised by Olofofo Uniosun during an interview session.

Professor Labode Popoola told Olofofo Uniosun correspondent that the convocation for the 2017/2018 graduating set is unlikely to hold based on a concrete reason. When asked the reason, the Don revealed that the results for the set are still being processed which will however affect the convocation for the set this year.

“Results are still being processed for the 2017/2018 cohort,  for which reason convoking those in that cohort is unlikely.” – Vice Chancellor said.


The Don further revealed the tentative convocation date for 2017/2018 graduating set in reaction to the question raised by Olofofo Uniosun. Professor Labode made it known that the tentative convocation date for 2017/2018 is September 21st, 2019.

“We will be looking at 21 September, 2019 by HIS special grace.” – Prof Labode added.

The chancellor promised to build a world-class paediatric hospital in UNIOSUN whose foundation laying ceremony will hold during the 7th convocation ceremony which is set to hold from Monday, 19th to Thursday 22nd November, 2018.
