Yaba College of Technology (YABATECH) has said that its 34th convocation ceremony for the graduating class of 2018/2019, 2019/2020 and 2020/2021 academic sessions will hold from November 15- 24, 2022.
Rector of the college, Obafemi Omokungbe, who disclosed this at a media briefing, said the convocation lecture, slated for November 21, 2022, with the topic: “Emergence of Successful Young Entrepreneur in Current Nigerian Economy: The Place of Integrity,” would be delivered by Managing Director, Lotus Bank, Mrs. Kafilat Araoye.
Omokungbe said 7,554 students would be awarded the National and Higher National Diploma on November 24.
He added that the institution remains the best polytechnic in the country according to the Webometric ranking.
“We have been able to maintain a fairly stable academic calendar in pursuit of acceptable academic standards despite the COVID-19 pandemic. The college was selected as a TETFUND Centre of Excellence and as a i-hub Centre by UNESCO-UNEVOC. We set up a radio station, 89.3 FM, improved infrastructure, sponsored staff for trainings and workshops, among others,” he said.
The Rector also reinstated the college’s commitment to safety and security of students.
Omokungbe noted that robust security measures were in place to ensure maximum security of students.
It will be recalled that in September, a student of the institution was shot dead in front of the Art complex.
However, Omokungbe stated the school was in partnership with the Sabo Police Division to tighten security, adding that plans were underway to install additional 300 solar-powered Close Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras on campus.
