Trinity University Chancellor

Trinity University, Yaba, Lagos, on Friday, held its maiden convocation during which the first two sets of students admitted into the university bagged their first degrees.

Also, the occasion witnessed the investiture of Prince Samuel Adedoyin as the pioneer Chancellor of the university.

Speaking on the occasion, the Pro-Chancellor, who is also Chairman, Governing Council, Pastor Samuel Olatunji, said the vision to start the Trinity Group of Schools that has now included a university, started 30 years ago.

“It was borne out of our deep concern for the alarmingly declining standards in the quality of education offered by most institutions. Some of us saw this and we moaned like many other Nigerians. But we did not only moan, we also challenged ourselves to do something about it, at least for the sake of our children, ” he said.

In his speech, Prince Adedoyin described the first five years of the university as incredible. “Five years ago, Trinity University emerged as a beacon of higher education, guided by a vision to foster academic excellence, instil ethical values and prepare students to be compassionate and responsible global citizens, ” he said.

The Acting Vice Chancellor, Prof. Clement Kolawole said the university has made indelible marks in its five years of existence.
