The Benson Idahosa University will at its 13th convocation
ceremony which comes up on Saturday graduate a total of 722

This was disclosed by the Vice-Chancellor, Prof Ernest
Izevbigie, at a briefing for the 13th convocation holding on
He also said 144 students got Second Class Upper, 364
Second Class Lower, while 38 made Third Class.
“The graduating students, nicknamed the ‘Titans’, have been
trained in line with the vision of the university to produce
global leaders,” he said.
He mentioned that the Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele
Fayose, would deliver the institution’s convocation lecture.

The Vice Chancellor, however, debunked reports that the
institution had increased its tuition fees to about N1million.
“Reports about increase of tuition fees in the institution is
untrue. We have not raised any of our fees. We are here to
serve the students. The economy is in recession. We do not
think this is the time to raise tuition fees.”
