Some graduating students of the University of Ibadan have decried the Nigeria’s premier university management’s decision to ban all, except first class graduates, from its 2021 Convocation ceremony.

The university on Monday held its Convocation and Award Ceremony for the First Degrees at the International Conference Centre, University of Ibadan, Ibadan, with only the first class graduates allowed in.

The institution had earlier announced that only first class graduands and their parents would be allowed into the Convocation Hall.

Those, who spoke with NAN, said that they felt cheated out of a very important milestone in their lives, describing the university’s action as “discriminatory and damning”.

One of the graduating students from the Faculty of Social Science, who simply gave his name as Bayo, said that he felt demoralised.
