Houdegbe made the remark at the University’s award of degrees and conferment of honorary awards to its graduating students and other local and international personalities, NAN reports.

“Three years ago, we graduated about 3,000 students from different areas of studies.

“Today, the Houdegbe North American University is graduating about 2,000 students, as well as the conferment of Honorary Doctorate Degrees on deserving personalities.

“Let me say that about 90 percent of students in our university are Nigerians, who are happy being our students,” he said.
