Prince Ajibola stressed that his university had produced people of sound moral character who are now in further studies or gainfully employed, noting that what stood Crescent University out from other universities was the breeding of brilliant and morally sound characters rather than "brilliant beasts".

Ajibola recalled a recent example where students of Crescent University refused to joined other unruly students from some universities in a riot against a state governor after installation of an Emir.
