The Council of Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida University, Lapai has approved the award of Honorary Doctorate Degree to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

The award of Doctor of Humane Letters(LH.D), Honoris Causa, which will be presented to the National Leader of All Progressive Congress (APC) on Saturday, 14th December, at the 3rd combined convocation ceremony, is in recognition of his outstanding contributions to humanity and human welfare.

Professor Maiturare had said that the posthumous award for late Kure was Doctor of Science (D.Sc) which is in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the development of IBB University, public service and the engineering profession.

Justice Maria Zukogi will, on the other hand, be honoured with a Doctor of Laws (LL.D), honoris causa, in recognition of her outstanding contributions to the administration of justice and exemplary public service.
