The Kwara State Governor, Alhaji (Dr.) Abdulfatah Ahmed, has commended the University of Ilorin for its giant strides in national development over the years.   

Alhaji Ahmed gave the commendation while delivering a goodwill message at the 34th Convocation Ceremonies of the Better By Far University last Tuesday (October 22, 2018).

The Governor, who is also an alumnus of the University, disclosed that he was always very proud of Unilorin for its meaningful contributions in making him what he is today ..

Governor Ahmed praised the University for consistently being the nation's most patronized University and for running an impactful, smooth and consistently productive academic calendar in the last two decades which, he said, has positioned the University to repeatedly churn-out highly-trained and competent manpower who are glowingly contributing their quotas to human progress in various spheres of life.

He also expressed delight with Unilorin for simultaneously producing two Senior Advocates of Nigeria in a single year. He pointed out that the uncommon development has gone a long way in re-establishing the incontrovertible status of the University as a true center of academic and professional excellence, which type is rare to come across among its peers. 

 The Governor assured members of the University of Ilorin community of the commitment of his administration to continue to partner with the institution in making life more abundant for the students and staff of the University and their host communities as exemplified in the erection of solar-powered streetlight from the University gate into the town among other developmental efforts.
