As part of activities to mark this year’s convocation, Babcock University honoured three former governors including Raji Fashola and Godswill Akpabio who have been adjudged to have made significant contribution to national development and their various states.
The trio were honoured during the Postgraduate Convocation of the university where over 150 masters and 50 PhD students would graduate.
Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State , Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom State, and Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso of Kano State (all two term governors) were applauded to the gallery as they trudged out to receive their Honorary degrees today.
While Kwankwaso was honoured for improving education in his state, Akpabio was being recognised for transforming the once backward state.
Fashola’s recognition is for his visionary leadership in innovatively attracting foreign investment to the state, among others.
Last year, the university conferred honorary degrees on Mosunmola Folashade Abudu (called Mo’ Abudu) and Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala.
