In his farewell message, the Chancellor urged graduands to have compassion and integrity, " Education without morality cannot bring happiness and prosperity to Uganda. Without integrity our future will certainly get worse."

Prof. Suruma equally urged all present in the congregation to embody the change they want to see in society.

With a candle here and a candle there we can save our country for ourselves and for our children and our grandchildren."
