Obasanjo attended the University's matriculation ceremony held in Abuja where he took the matriculation oath. Obasanjo who is also the Visitor to the university remarked that "I will leave no stone unturned to undertake my academic work seriously. Exactly six months from now, I will cease to be a Visitor.
