The joyful event was also attended by Dr Hafiz Homeida the University Vice President and Dr Suzan Homeida member of the Board of Trustees and. Professor Mamon Homeida, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the University, was conspicuous by his absence. His absence left a glaring gap that will hopefully soon be rectified.

The speakers reflected the widely shared sentiment that Batch 21 was, collectively and individually, characterized by academic excellence, resilience and commitment. Their success was all made more emphatic by the fact that it was obtained under severe conditions and taxing circumstances. However, despite all difficulties they succeeded in doing themselves and their families proud As the University bids them goodbye, wishes them the success they really and truly deserve. They will undoubtedly be hugely missed.
