“We have put in place security measures,” and we have an agreement with Sabo Police to beef up security. “We’ll then add 300 more solar-powered CCTV cameras,” he explained.

He stated that the convocation would take place between November 21 and 24, 2022. He noted that it was a combined one for the 2018/2019, 2019/2020, and 2020/2021 sessions due to the coronavirus pandemic.
