Federal School Of Statistics, Ibadan (National Bureau Of Statistics) certified not less than 3,658 graduates yesterday Friday 9th April, 2021 in the first ever convocation of the institution.

According to the Rector of the school, Dr Kayode Balogun said the delay in the accreditation of the school led to the late convocation of the graduates from the 2014/2015 academic session to date.

Balogun said that the convocation was special because it combined six graduating sets and noted that for several years, graduation ceremonies have been a mirage in the institution.

This citadel of learning has produced bank chiefs and business merchants. It might interest you to know I am a product of this great citadel of learning.

“This school was established in 1948 as a training unit for refresher courses under the Federal Office of Statistics (FOS), now known as National Bureau of Statistics, which is a merger of FOS and National Data Bank.

“In 1961, its training activities were extended to other ministries and parastatals and later graduated to a full-fledged school in 1971, awarding a middle-level statistical officer certificate for a two-year programme in statistics.

We now run both National Diploma and Higher National Diploma programmes in Statistics, Computer Science, Business Administration and Accounting.

“The importance of this certificate cannot be overemphasised as it is acceptable locally and internationally. Our programmes are under the supervision of the National Board for Technical Education,” he said.

The rector, however, urged the graduates to pursue their careers to higher levels.
