Details On FUNAI Maiden Convocation Ceremony -2016/17

This is to inform the General Public, especially our prospective graduates, their parents, guardians and friends as well as the staff and students of the University  that the maiden Convocation Ceremony/Award of Certificates of the Federal University Ndufu-Alike Ikwo (FUNAI), Ebonyi State, earlier scheduled to hold on November 25th– 26th, 2016 has been shifted to December 19th -20th, 2016.
