The Islamic University College, Ghana (IUCG), has held its 14th Congregation for students who have successfully completed various programmes at the end of the 2016/2017 academic year.
A total of 295 students comprising 167 males which represent 56.6 percent and 128 females representing 43.4 percent graduated from various degrees and diplomas due them.
Dr Gamel Nasser Adam, the Vice President for Academic Affairs of the university congratulated the graduating Class of 2017 and entreated them to build on the knowledge they have acquired throughout their studies at the school.
“Indeed, throughout the years that you have been here as students, the IUCG has endeavoured to impart to you the relevant knowledge and discipline which should prepare you for the challenges of the world outside,” Adam said.
“Much as you have acquired the requisite knowledge which has qualified you for the certificate you will be receiving today, your schooling at the IUCG is also to make you appreciate the fact that there is so much knowledge out there that you do not know. One of the key objectives of IUCG has therefore been to instill in you a lifelong desire to study and know those things that you do not know.”
H.E. Dr Nosratollah Maleki, the Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran, who was the Special Guest of Honour advised the graduating students to pay attention to time and prioritize their task as it provides brighter future.
“As students, you have great personalities like late Dr Kwame Nkrumah as showcased in history to look at to achieve your goals and with the trust in God and with teamwork, promoting motivation, good and effective communication, paying attention to time, fairness prioritizing task and so on, will lead to progress,” he said.
Special awards were presented to some deserving students including Mr Sama-Madjaladjo Aziz Mohammed, Issah Ruhaina Issah and Millicent Gyimah Boateng as Best Religious Studies, Business Administration and overall Best student respectively.
