Speaking ahead of the ceremony, Otunba TJ, Publisher of a Lagos-based news outlet, Eko Hot Blog who is also one of the graduands for this year’s convocation ceremony, described the occasion as a crowning moment for tenacious individuals who have chosen to be ambassadors of the truth.

Noting that Journalism is what maintains democracy, he hailed the graduands for joining the quest for progressive social change and admonished them to be guided by the basic axiom that the courage in journalism is sticking up for the unpopular, not the popular.
