The founder and Pro-Chancellor of the Adeleke University, Ede, Dr. Adedeji Adeleke, has said that 82 per cent of the students in the institution are there on scholarship.

Adeleke said this during the third convocation of the university, held in Ede on Sunday.

Addressing the graduating students, staff of the university and visitors, he said, “A mind is a terrible thing to waste and that is why I have been looking for ways to give back to society. One of the main objectives of this institution is to give hope to hopeless people.

“Eighty-two per cent of the students in this school are on scholarship and I know that what they have enjoyed here they will replicate same in society.”

He called on Nigerians to assist the underprivileged, especially in the area of payment of school fees, to ensure that children of the poor are also educated.

Adeleke said he was always pained each time he was unable to render assistance to the large number of people who requested help from him.

He stressed that many minds were wasting simply because they lacked someone to pay their school fees.

The Vice Chancellor of the university, Prof.  Ekundayo Alao,  in his address said  the institution produced 18 first class graduands.

He added that while 124 students graduated with second class upper degrees, 78 got second class lower degrees and 14 graduated with third class.
