Following the federal government announcement of the inauguration of the newly constituted members of the University Governing Councils for May 30th 2024, Management of Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka has rescheduled the date for its 18th convocation ceremony to 31st May 2024 in order to attend the Abuja inauguration.

The ceremony was originally scheduled to hold on May 30 and 31, 2024 but has been readjusted to hold only on May 31.

A statement signed by the Special Adviser to the Vice Chancellor (Public Relations and Special Duties) Dr Emma Ojukwu said the adjustment became very necessary so as to accommodate the constitution of the governing council of the university, which will hold in Abuja on May 30.

“The Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka wishes to inform all the graduands, friends of the University, the University Community and the general public that the 18th convocation ceremony of the University earlier scheduled to hold on the 30 and 31 of May, 2024 has now been rescheduled to only May 31, 2024.
