Vice chancellor wants more universities
The Vice Chancellor, Federal University, Wukari, Taraba State, Professor Geoffrey Okogbaa has called on the Federal Government to establish more universities in the country to cater for the growing population of admission seekers.
Okogbaa made the remarks while playing host to a coalition of civil society organisations under the aegis of Joint Action Coalition of Civil Society Groups.
He said the creation of additional public universities by the past administration, remains a noble gesture to both parents and students and has helped to reduce the psychological trauma, rejection and destruction of dreams being faced by many helpless Nigerians in the past.
“One thing you cannot take away from the Jonathan administration is the fact that he gave education priority attention,” he said.
Leader of the delegation, Comrade Isaac Ikpa said they had decided to bestow on Prof. Okogbaa the award of “Man of the Year 2015” due to his sterling performance at the Federal University, Wukari.
He further added that the award was not just a commendation but aimed at spurring others to emulate the great achievements of the Vice Chancellor.
