The Bowen University, Iwo, Osun State, will on Saturday honour the Ebola heroine and physicians, late Stella Adadevoh, with a Doctor of Science in Public Health.

Also, a former president of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, will deliver lecture on ‘The Nation and University System’ at the 16th convocation ceremony.
Prof. Ogunwole who disclosed that about 60 students are graduating with first class position out of 1,014, boasted that the university has produced students that are making waves all over the world.
He lamented lack of funding in private universities, adding “despite this limiting factor, we are still able to compete favourably with public universities with all the support from their federal and state governments.”
Speaking on the quality of students produced by the university, Prof Ogunwole said the institution’s entrepreneurship is targeted at what can influence the world.
