The ceremony which was formerly scheduled to hold on the 27th February, 2018, following the release of the school’s academic calender, did not meet the stipulated date.

The convocation ceremony was postponed to 10th March, 2018. This is as a result of the Non Academic Staff UNION (NASU) strike action which lasted from 14th November 2017 – 7th March, 2018 (suspension date). However, Mrs. J.N. Ikeme, the secretary, ceremonial committee in a memo published on 6th March, 2018 to all Heads Of Departments (HODs) said that the convocation ceremony has been rescheduled.
