The Vice Chancellor of the University, Very Reverend Father Prof Christian Anieke, who disclosed this during the convocation ceremony at the University’s permanent site, Ugwuomu community, in Enugu East Local Government Area of Enugu State, expressed satisfaction by announcing the first set of graduates from the faculty law.

The pioneer Vice Chancellor gave the categories to include, 335 first degrees and 46 post graduate degrees. He said that 9 graduands bagged first class honours, 147 made second class upper division while 146 got second lower class and 32 made third class.

Miss Emaka Adaobi Priscilla with registration number, U18/NAS/MCB/242, emerged the overall best graduating Student. Prof Anieke further said that the management would use the 10th convocation to examine the University’s uniqueness which is anchored on connectivity, stressing that the school would continue to progress as its name sounds, “GO”.

He said: “Parts of what makes this year’s convocation memorable is that our university has produced the first set of graduates from our highly reputable law faculty. I have no doubt that we have given our country a crop of brilliant, focused, innovative and God-fearing lawyers, who will certainly call the shots in the legal field in their generation.”

“We now have a college of medicine. The National University Commission has given Godfrey Okoye University the green light to begin academic activities in its college of medicine after its resources visit from 7th to 9th September 2022. It has been our dream because we are conscious of the healing ministry of the Catholic Church. Our College of Medicine will certainly reveal our face of connectivity as a university.”
