Na-Alllah who made this promise yesterday when speaking to reporters in Abuja also vowed to do everything possible to provide the necessary facilities to make learning easy and interesting at the university.

The vice-chancellor also said he would empower the indigenous people of the CTF by establishing a center for the Gbagyi Institute to help promote community development, among others, in the region.
âMy approach and desires are to lead the way building on existing blocks, to inspire shared leadership and vision, to promote academic excellence and to nurture the heart with the right attitude.
âWe want to produce students who can think strategically and not get involved in bureaucracy and, as such, all stakeholders and all hands need to own it.
“This will help us achieve the goal of repositioning the university as a center of innovation, knowledge, creation, technology-driven enterprise, learning and adaptation as core competencies,” did he declare.
He noted that one of the goals of the university is to develop a spirit of research among graduate students for research, intellectual independence, individual creativity and teamwork.
