American University of Nigeria will graduate its 10th class including potential, budding entrepreneurs at a Commencement Ceremony scheduled for Saturday, May 19, at its main campus in Yola, the Adamawa State capital.
Mr. Iyinoluwa Aboyeji, the Chief Executive and co-Founder of Flutterwave, an intercontinental payments technology company, is this year’s keynote speaker.
Side attractions in the 2018 Commencement package include a formal presidential inauguration of Dr. Dawn Dekle who assumed leadership of AUN mid-2017 as the fourth substantive President. Board of Trustees member and ninth President of Marlboro College, Vermont, the United States, Dr. Kevin F. F. Quigley, will give the inauguration remarks during the ceremony.
Dr. Quigley is an internationally recognized leader and educator who leads a progressive liberal arts college modelled on the Oxford-Cambridge system of seminars and tutorials.
Unveiling the lineup of commencement events, the Vice President for University Relations, Abubakar Abba Tahir, said the university feels honored to have these guests accept its invitations. “As a learning community, we are deeply honored to have Mr. Aboyeji as our Commencement Speaker and are excited to have Dr. Quigley give the President’s inauguration remarks.”
On the eve of the ceremony, there will be a banquet to present graduation awards to deserving students by corporate sponsors. This event publicly recognizes and celebrates the accomplishments of the graduating seniors. Before then, on May 17, all graduating members of the AUN Honor Society will be invited for an award banquet. These students are the crème de la crème of the graduating class.
