Matriculating its first students on Saturday, May 4th 2019, the occasion had in attendance notable personalities across the traditional spheres, professional/business spheres and the creative/entertainment industries as the Obas of Egbe and Shasha graced the occassion. Their coming fulfilled the traditional blessings the school so much needs at its infant stage before national, continental and global relevance. Hence, the day is a day to really reckon with.
Also, part of the dignitaries for the day include Uche Anyaemele; a notable A-class actor, who played Richard in the famous Super Story “No Pain, No Gain” edition. Madam Idowu Philips a.k.a “Mama Rainbow” also blessed us with her presence. Expected on the day was the then newly elected deputy governor of Lagos State, Dr. Femi Hamzat, who for some reasons decried his absence but was fully represented by his aide.
The day would not be complete without mentioning the presence of professional leaders who came to share in our joy with us. The CEO of popular FinTech company, Ren Money, was also around. Please head to our gallery to see photos of that glorious day! You shouldn’t miss the day and miss the photos too, right? And as you know, photos speak a trillion words! And did we mention? Your popular Boy Alinco was also around. He was the music compere (MC) of the day. Now you know what that means. The day was packed with activities and fun.
Now, to the most important part: The lecture. It was delivered by Prof. Shokefun of the Lagos State University (LASU) department of Geography. It was on “Oil and entrepreneurship: The bedrock of nation building”. If we say you missed the day, then it is not an over-statement. You really missed the fun!
Going further, since the students have been matriculated and are now proper students of the institution, we launched them to further lectures before they wrote their first semester examination. Well, you guessed right. They were drilled with questions that test their knowledge in their field of study. Here at Ekocity, we understand that proper examination is key to the kind of graduates we produce, reason why we make our examinations process as current as it should be. In fact, we have an office for examinations alone called the Examinations Office and an Examinations Officer who comes to vet all examination processes and procedures and certify them satisfactory before the conduct of any exam. In truth, we are on the path to nation building.
For our history, we would say this liner: We have a long standing tradition of excellence, a very strong present and of course, a very bright and rewarding future awaiting us. And we are in the present, come join us build on this very strong solid present we have so you can be part of the great future that awaits us!
