I feel highly elated to stand before all these dignitaries to present this valedictory speech. To God be to the Glory.
May I cease this opportunity to thank and praise the Father Founder/Chancellor of this noble/great University, Very Rev. Father Professor Emmanuel Mathew Pail Edeh, an instrument of Excellence, a great/gigantic achiever, whom the God Almighty used for establishing this noble institution- "A Primus Inter Paris". To him, I say "Bravo" and God Bless. The prayers composed by the Fr. Founder; "Jesus I love you and Jesus I depend on You" really helped me a lot. I encourage other students to be serious about these prayers before they start reading their books and when they are confused.
Again, I say "thank you" to all the professors and lecturers who made this occasion possible. Without them, this occasion would have be a 'mirage'. To other members of staff of this institution. I say 'thank you'.
To my fellow students of Madonna University, I say "keep the flag of this institution flying admirably and amicably as the founder designed". May God bless and reward my dear parents and guardian, who toil day and night to ensure that I am nourished and maintained.
This speech will not be complete without highlighting the reasons for all the achievements recorded by students of this University both old and incumbent. The Father Founder has established a conducive environment for studies- no strike; no cult activities, good physical activities like jogging (I cannot forget the good advise during joggings); good religious and moral practices, like prayers and adoration; a complete boarding school well supervised. The school curriculum is well articulated and established. The facilities are modern and exemplary. The lecturers are dedicated and of good quality. To crown this all, the school motto: "DECENCY IN EDUCATION AND MORALS" summarizes all.
My heart is full of joy and appreciates this noble institution Madonna University for imparting knowledge and inculcating moral values into my life. Is anyone thirsty of knowledge and morals? Come and drink the water knowledge and moral in "Madonna University". I am proud to be a Madonite.
Finally, I dedicate this award to my parents and siblings who it possible for me to attain this height. And to JESUS THE SAVIOUR, I say thank you!
Thank you all for listening.
