I know it has not been easy to see an academic year begin and end. But my heartfelt condolences goes to those we have lost in their finally year and other students we lost along the way. We thank the Almighty God for bringing you this far.
Thanks for your great patience. To be precise, you are the class that has completed four years in campus since 2009 up to 2013. Your fellow comrades in other campus are already through but that did not kill your morale. Congratulations.
You have seen several first years coming to campus. You have been so friendly and warm towards your juniors. Thanks for mentoring the ones behind you.
