My FUTO Guest Convocation Lecture Finalized for Dec 6-7, 2019

My FUTO Guest Convocation Lecture Finalized for Dec 6-7, 2019

Finally, it is done. Yes, I have finished writing my Convocation Lecture (see top page below) which I will deliver during FUTO (Federal University of Technology Owerri Nigeria) 32nd Convocation Ceremony. This is different from the Commencement Address. The Convocation Lecture is an academic liturgy and my speech is 36 pages long (single spaced, 12 font Times New Roman on Microsoft Word).  

Over the last ten days, I have been working on this speech. I do write very fast and practically my own library. But this one is different as I expect dozens of  professors attending under the chairmanship of the University Chancellor (Lamido Adamawa). 

It would be a great presentation. I like speaking in FUTO, my alma mater. In 2009, I delivered the University Lecture. When this is done, I will be the first graduate of FUTO to deliver its convocation lecture. That the Council, Senate, Committee of Deans, Students Union, Alumni and our Chancellors chose me, puts a deeper meaning on grace. “Qualify me, oh Lord, before men and women,” was a typical prayer in the Scripture Union in those days.

  1. “When this is done, I will be the first graduate of FUTO to deliver its convocation lecture.” This singular line suddenly changes the complexion and weight of the lecture. Yes, if for over 30 years since inception, that FUTO hasn’t chosen one of its products to deliver the Convocation Lecture, it says a lot about how special this particular one is. And if you do it so well, FUTO can now confidently assert that what it has been ‘borrowing’ scholars from other places, it has them in-house.

    A 36 pages of Intellectual Pilgrimage, you have got what it takes; just climb up there and do your thing!
