41 bag First Class at BIU

Forty-one students of the Benson Idahosa University (BIU), in Edo State will graduate with First Class honours during the 2014/2015 graduation on Saturday.

This is out of a total of 871 graduands that would be awarded first and post graduate degrees.

Vice Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Ernest Izevbigie, who disclosed this at a press briefing said the institution decided to shift its convocation to June to enable its graduates apply for post graduate studies in September.

The VC said the university would consider some of the First Class graduates for immediate employment.

He said the convocation lecture titled “Effective Educational System: A Panacea for Societal Development and Transformation” would be delivered by former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

Izevbigie said the university plans to pay its lecturers more than Federal universities because of the international status the institution has attained.

He disclosed that the Michigan State University is collaborating with BIU to build a Bio-reactor for the conversion of carbon-based waste into electricity to supplement energy needs.
