“I am a minister for the youth because you are our future. Trustworthiness, honesty, integrity and loyalty (at this institution) are the values proudly upgrading us as a nation,” he told the huge audience amidst applauses. The minister revealed that the government at federal and provincial levels has since introduced both short and long term reforms and various projects aimed at making the youth entrepreneurs.

“This year, 40 billion rupees have been allocated to education in Punjab province only and we have signed several MoUs and contracts with seven more international universities promising scholarships for our students,” he added.  

The super event was also honored by the Chairman Punjab Higher Education Commission (PHEC), Prof Dr Mohammad Nizamuddin. “This is the beginning,” said Prof Nizamuddin after congratulating graduates. “You should continue to achieve more.

On behalf of UOL, the Chairman Board of Governors, Mr. Awais Raoof paid tribute to the guests for loving and supporting this institution. He equally commended parents and students for their sacrifices.    

“This is a great day for this institution. It started with the humble efforts of our Patron, M.A. Raoof and the late M.H. Qazi. We shall continue to miss M.H., as a great man. The University no doubt has grown into a reputable research institution, with a 40,000 student population, 42 departments, 2,000+ fulltime academics, and four hospitals with 1,100 beds,” Mr. Awais revealed.
