It is with gratitude to God that we all gathered to recount what we have collectively been able to achieve on the last One hundred (100) days that I have been at the helm of affairs in this University.
Permit me to recall that the Registrar—Mr E.M. Ichendu and I assumed duty on the 4th day of May 2015. Since that day, we have been working with the other Principal Officers, Management, Members of Council and indeed, all staff, students and friends of the University to make FUPRE a University of first choice in Nigeria.
Before I go further, I want to thank the Pro-Chancellor and Chairman, Governing Council, Senator Nimi Barigha-Amange and Members of the Governing Council for selecting me as the Vice-Chancellor and the other Principal Officers which has ushered in a new lease of life to the University. We hope to collectively work with the Governing Council to take this University to an enviable height.
On my assumption of duty, I presented to the University community my vision of where I intended the university should be taken during my time as Vice chancellor. I will want to remind us of some of these and how far we have gone in working towards achieving the set vision.
