Thirty-two  beneficiaries of a particular scholarship scheme by Star Deepwater Petroleum Ltd, a Chevron Company and its Agbami Coventurers yesterday graduated with First Class honours at the University of Lagos, UNILAG. The scholars, who were elated by their academic feat, lauded the gesture, adding that the scholarships  provided them the opportunity to concentrate on their studies without thinking of how to pay school fees. ‘’The Deepwater Petroleum Ltd scholarship scheme was a blessing to us because it afforded us the opportunity to concentrate on our studies without thinking of where our school fees will come from,’’ they said. On her part, the perfect score bearer, who graduated with a 5.0 Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA), Oyindamola Omotuyi, has appealed to the federal government to re-equip the universities to be technologically at par with present global trends. She made the appeal while delivering the valedictory address on the second day of the convocation ceremonies held at the Jelili Adebisi Omotola Hall, of the university yesterday. She said: “More than being successful graduates of UNILAG, we want to be able to deliver in the industry and contribute to the development of the nation. So we are appealing to federal government to furnish our departments to be technologically advanced and up to date with modern trends.” Omotuyi, who also called for the expansion and renovation of the university’s hostels, noted that  students of UNILAG deserve more than they enjoy. “We need an expansion and renovation of hostel facilities for our students to facilitate learning and to also add to our conducive environment,” Omotuyi said.
