Today is memorable day in the lives of all of us here as we witness this moment of history. God Almighty to whose glory we gather today, is worthy to be praised. He has made it possible for us to witness this convocation ceremony of its first Graduands of this University. Permit me to express my deepest gratitude to the Proprietor of Godfrey Okoye University, Most Rev. Dr. Callistus Chukwuma Onaga, for appointing me Chancellor of this great Catholic Institution. My gratitude and congratulations are also expressed particularly to the Vice Chancellor of the University, Very Reverend Father Professor Christian Anieke, and through him the entire Management team, the staff, students, Governing Council and stakeholders of the University for working so hard within such a relatively short space of time to obtain its license from the National University Commission (NUC) on November 3 2013. Without the support and cooperation of all, the academic achievements we are celebrating today would not have been possible. Since it take off, the Institution has proved that it is a real Catholic University by its quality of discipline, high academic standards and sound moral values. That the University stresses religious dialogue as one of its core values in these days when for the slightest provocation or the most ridiculous malfeasance, fellow countrymen and women are daily being shot, slaughtered, lynched, beaten to death, or "wasted" and students of our universities and colleges set up violent cults that are now and again devouring lives of young people in their prime, in what was meant to be citadels of learning and oases of sanity cannot but be applauded. Some other special ills in the University include sorting, sale of handouts, indecent dressing, campus marriage which should not be found in any Catholic University.
