As many as 1,546 students were awarded degrees at the Convocation 2016 of Dadabhoy Institute of Higher Education, the organisers said on Sunday. Chief Minister Sindh Syed Murad Ali Shah was the chief guest while Senator Haseeb Khan and Major Aziz were Guest of Honour. DIHE Chairman Abdullah Dadabhoy presided over the function.
Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah, in his address, said that the education received by the students at DIHE and the degrees availed by them would explore their potential in future and help them avail jobs to serve the country.
He urged the students to be aware of their new responsibilities in near future while entering into practical life. Murad Ali Shah urged the students to keep themselves motivated; remember their dreams and fight to transform the dreams into reality. Students must know what they want from life, he added.
