Last week, the University of Lagos (UNILAG) held its 50th convocation ceremony and without doubt, was a glamorous and memorable event with the high and mighty in attendance.
One of the high points of the event was on Thursday, April 4, 2019, when the General Overseer and founder of Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries (MFM), Dr Daniel Kolawole Olukoya, was conferred with a Honorary Doctorate Degree alongside other high profile persons, including the Chairman of Zenith Bank, Jim Ovia.
Talk around town was that this, unarguably, was honour well deserved by the Academician, Author, Pastor and Preacher of the word of God.
It was a standing ovation when the Governing Council and Senate of the University stood up to support and identify with Dr D.K Olukoya when his profile of achievements was been recited to the admiration of all those present at the J.F Ade Ajayi Auditorium, University of Lagos.
Mr Lateef Okunnu, former Minister of Works and Housing in Nigeria and Mr Jim Ovia, founder of Zenith Bank, were major, note-worthy personalities who were also conferred with Honorary Doctorate Degrees at the convocation ceremony.
Also present at the convocation ceremony was the new Governor-elect of Lagos State, Mr Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu, a product of University of Lagos like the MFM founder. He was there to felicitate with the scholar and clergyman, Dr D.K Olukoya and other outstanding professors and students that bagged various degrees respectively.
Here are faces of those present at the glamorous event.
