He stressed that graduation can only be possible if they make themselves available and cooperate with the academy authorities.
Aikoroje charged the newly matriculated students to be committed to their studies, be loyal to the leadership of the institution and be disciplined.
He also congratulated the grandaunts and urged them to further their studies with institutions of their choice and be good ambassadors of the Academy.
