Like an expectant mother on her delivery day the FUOYE community was agog with preparations for the ceremony that crowned both the efforts of the student and teachers, ushered the students into the world as the institution ambassadors, and ushered the teachers into classrooms to prepare yet another set of graduands.

It was the convocation ceremony of Federal University Oye-Ekiti. Speakers and commentators alike believed it was a historical event, being the maiden convocation ceremony of the young institution

Saturday, April 29, 2017 marked the day FUOYE announced to the world that she had been delivered of her first born baby. It was a day of joy and a day of first’s.

For the Vice Chancellor, Prof Kayode Soremekun, it was his first convocation as vice chancellor. For the lecturers who travailed in the classrooms, it was a day of maiden presentation of the outcome of their academic efforts. For the graduating students, it was a day that announced them as the first products of the institution and the first ambassadors sent into the world by the institution. Parents were also on ground to witness the outcome of their labour. It was a two-pronged occasion that saw the graduation ceremony of students for the 2014/2015 and 2015/2016 academic sessions. The Faculty of Agriculture produced 34 graduands; Faculty of Arts, 95; Faculty of Engineering, 42; Faculty of Science, 120; and Faculty of Social Science, 210.

In summary, 461 students graduated from the first five faculties created in the university at inception.

Eighteen students graduated in First Class position. The best overall graduating students for the 2014/2015 and 2015/2016 academics sessions were Olatunde Moses Damilola of Biochemist Department of the Faculty of Science, and Okeowo Temitope Oluseyi of the Department of Electrical/Electronic Engineering, respectively

For the ebullient and dynamic vice chancellor, it was an occasion that produced joy and fulfillment as well as reminded  all stakeholders of the enormous work that FUOYE has to a become globally competing institution.

The occasion also saw the formal installation of HRM, Michael Idakwo, Ameh Oboni II of Igala land, as the first Chancellor of Federal University Oye-Ekiti. The Chancellor pledged to uphold, throughout the tenure of his office, the statutes and laws of Federal University Oye-Ekiti without favour.

Eighteen Universities, both government and privates were represented in the occasion.

In their speeches , the Chancellor, Pro-Chancellor and Vice Chancellor all agreed that FUOYE needed support in areas of finances, structures, books and collaborations and any other relevant support to become an institution of first choice recognized for providing critical opportunities for students’ success.
