Abstract

On behalf of the staff and students of Godfrey Okoye University, I heartily welcome you all to the 11th Matriculation of Godfrey Okoye University. I welcome you to God’s own university, the Catholic university on the go! Distinguished ladies and gentlemen, this matriculation is taking place in the new decade of Godfrey Okoye University after the first decade that ended with the unforgettable 10th Anniversary celebrations late last year. Whereas the first decade was the sowing of the seed, this new decade is the harvest of what has been sown. Whereas the first decade is the laying of the foundation of the university, this second decade will be the building on that robust foundation, finishing the building to taste, designing new structures and celebrating the epiphany of the university in a globally connected academia. Whereas the first decade was the period of infancy and taking of the first steps with their concomitant rising and falling, this second decade is the period of adolescence and adulthood that will be marked by youthful adventurism, clarity, virility and breathtaking speed. Godfrey Okoye University enters its second decade with such epistemic certainty and a bag full of experience. I therefore welcome you to this new, second decade of one of the fastest growing private universities in Nigeria.
