Legacy University Okija was set agog on Saturday, August 20, 2022, when the institution held its 6th matriculation ceremony for the 2021/2022 academic session. The spectacular event attracted the presence of respected dignitaries who graced the occasion. In his address at the event, the pro-chancellor, Dr. Leonard Nkameme, described the university as a world-class institution that has gotten full accreditation in all its programmes since 2019, and has succeeded in producing two sets of graduates who have gone for their NYSC, while the third set is about to graduate.
The university, he said, is well equipped with facilities and equipment for students' comfort and aspirations. According to him, facilities such as standard blocks of residence, well-equipped laboratories for practicals and a modern library that is embellished with standard journals and textbooks are in place for the students, adding that Legacy University has secured partnership with international universities for the benefit of the students. While congratulating the matriculants, Dr Nkameme urged them to work hard in order to graduate with the glorious first-class grade and other honours, stating that they should count themselves lucky for choosing Legacy.
The acting vice chancellor, Prof Ezekiel Ihionu, in his own speech remarked that the university is growing in leaps and bounds academically and otherwise, revealing that, outside the faculties of Arts, Social and Management Sciences, and Natural and Applied Sciences, the institution is concluding plans to establish other facilities including Law, which may take off very soon. He further disclosed that at Legacy University, there is zero tolerance for examination malpractice, cultism, sexual abuse and all forms of misconduct.
Parents of the matriculants, including Chief Mike Eze and Mr Peter Okeke and others, who spoke to the press said they are happy having their children at Legacy University, describing the institution as one of the best in the country.
