The management, staff and students of Chrisland University, Abeokuta, Ogun state, 'bombed' the Vice - Chancellor;  Prof. (Mrs) Chinedum Peace Babalola, with affections on Monday as she marked her birthday, describing her as a God fearing, diligent and innovative university administrator committed to the progress of the institution.

The management and staff also prayed for Mrs Babalola's long life, good health and God's grace to keep moving Chrisland university to a greater height.

The elated Professor of Pharmacy who was "overwhelmed" by the outpouring of love, said being alive to witness another Birthday in her life, remains  a "miracle."

She said: "I'm overwhelmed by your outpouring of love. Every year they come out with a new style, I feel more loved today than last year, I can't express it enough, it is worth more than billion naira. 

"What shall I render to these people for these showers of love, just to say thank you. This is really a very big surprise.

"My husband is afraid of my life, and that I'm live today to witness this day is a miracle. My husband is afraid of my life because of health concern. 

"Even yesterday, he told me; 'don't make me a widower.' I became afraid too, by his Grace I will not die, work will not kill me, I'm glad that I'm alive. I will live to declare the glory and mercy of God upon my life."

Later, the Vice - Chancellor briefed the press about the institution's  maiden convocation, disclosing that  Chrisland University just turns out seven graduates with two of them making it to the First Class category list.

She said the seven graduands were the pioneer students when the institution opened its gate for new entrants four years ago.

Mrs Babalola added that the management remained proud of them for  being part of the university's history, stressing that their formal convocation is slated for the first week of November.
The Pharmacy Professor disclosed further that the graduands would be leaving with Entrepreneurship certificate,  in addition to the the degree certificate in their various primary disciplines.
She noted that the university has instilled in the students entrepreneurial skills that would turn them into job creators and not seekers. 

"We are proud of the seven graduates. They worth more than 7,000 students. For their parents to agree to join a brand new university and now they are graduating, it means well to us," Mrs  Babalola said.

The Vice Chancellor said that former Executive Secretary of the National University Commission (NUC), Prof Peter Okebukola woul deliver the convocation lecture themed: "Building a World class University in Africa - The role of private universities" while former Governor Peter Obi of Anambra State would deliver  lecture titled :"Creativity, Innovation and Entrepreneurship: A critical intersection for Economic Development in Africa," on the convocation day.
