And, Mr. Okpa said that this ceremony was unique as: “Last year, we organized the matriculation ceremony with all human acts on acting capacity, but today we are marking it with substantive provost and registrar.

“Today like other years, we have the Deputy Provost in the excellence of seating authority. In my capacity as the chairman with my board members, we have played this role celebrating the State; it was indeed a long work.

“May I have the permission from his Excellency at this very juncture to also use the effort making event to organize legally and authenticate the admission of the 2018 Academic Section, all glory goes to God, and we also thank and our amiable Governor who has given us free hands over this project.”

He averred that the school secured approval to mobilize graduates in the HND cadre from “three of our department to serve the nation (in the) NYSC (National Youth Service Corps) scheme. They are the department of public health nursing, environmental health technology, and department of health respectively.”

Cross River Governor, Senator Ben Ayade charged the students to be studious as their destinies lie in their hands.

He was represented by his deputy, Professor Ivara Esu who averred that: “Every student should work very hard, no hard working student will ever encounter any problem like malpractices and other humiliating activities.”
