The Vice Chancellor, Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Anambra State, Prof. Joseph Ahaneku, on Wednesday said the institution would absorb all the best graduating students of the institution.

Speaking at the award presentation ceremony of best graduating students held at the university auditorium, Ahaneku disclosed that a total of 54 students were selected for the award out of the over 7,000 graduands.

He noted that those to be retained must have been found worthy in character and learning after undergoing screening from their places of primary assignments in the course of their one year national youth service.

The event, which marked the second in the series, was created by the institution to celebrate excellence targeted at challenging others to strive harder for better performance.

His words: “We are giving all the best graduating students the opportunity to join us if they so desire. We can’t afford to allow our best brains to waste away.

“We look forward to the time when most of you must have been established and will come back to improve the lots of the university by taking up the projects of your choices.”

Ahaneku urged the graduands to reciprocate the knowledge and skills acquired in the course of their stay in the institution by giving back to their alma mater through projects and researches.

He maintained that the institution was committed to producing self-reliant graduates in tandem with the university’s motto of excellence and self-reliance.”

While congratulating the grandaunts, Ahaneku told them to guard the good name they have already acquired jealously by reflecting it in any assignment they would be faced with in the outside world.
