FRESHERS ORIENTATION PROGRAMME HELD AT ACADEMIC STAFF HALL THIS DAY 18TH
HOD COMPUTER SCIENCE
On behalf of Nacossites, I want to welcome you all to the orientation programme of the most
innovative department in Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko. We are all gathered here
this morning to felicitate with our beloved brothers and sisters which are the new intakes and
to formally initiate them into the academic brotherhood of this innovative department.
Every year, hundreds of students join programme at this reputable university and few of them
are privileged to be part of the best department in the varsity in which you are part of today. I
have the privilege to announce to you this morning that the students of this department have
always been coming out in flying colors both in academics pursuit and career-wise. Some of our
400 level students are been awaited for resumption of duty immediately after their final papers
from the company where they had their SIWES. Few months ago, two of our students were
rewarded by etisalat for their outstanding academic performance.
It should be noted however, that the academic prowess possessed and maintained by students
of these department over the years is neither coincident or accident but rather one gotten via
true commitment, diligence, hard-working and high level of devotion on the part of our
students, as well as our ever ready to work lecturers. It is on this note I charge you all to
emulate this good legacies.
Whether we like it or not, we are immersed in a world that is racing along with technology. We
arise every morning to check text messages on our phones, emails waiting in our inboxes, our
facebook messages, weather forecast for the day, financial transactions online e.t.c. Computer
science as a course tends to span across all sectors in Nigeria and abroad affirming her as the
number one position leaving others to settle for other positions. Let me announce to you that
the alumni of this innovative department are working in various fields across the globe, some
were even present at the just concluded faculty’s conference for presentations on how to
tackle Nigeria via Scientific approach. It is expedient to bring to your notice that some of our
alumni are now working in this same school as lecturers and programmer of these school these
include Mr. Rotimi, Mr. Oriola, Mr. Orimoloye, and Mr. Ogunniye just to mention few. I believe
these are enough to erase our doubt of where can i work after graduation.
I will also like to give you this three pieces of advice as a tool to fortify your mindset of
achieving your purpose here on campus. Firstly, the only threat to your academic success as a
student is laziness and lackadaisical attitude towards your primary aim of being in Adekunle
Secondly, passion for your profession is the only way to be ever progressive in the field of
Lastly, we are drowning in knowledge and information, but we are starved for skills and
innovation. Therefore, pure knowledge is not enough, skills and ideas are required, be wise.
On behalf of the HOD, Staff Adviser, all Lectures, Executives of this association, and all
Nacossites, I hereby officially welcome you to the most innovative department of computer
My very best wishes and I thank you all.
God bless NACOSS
God bless AAUA
