Lalong, while appreciating the efforts of the university’s vice chancellor, Prof. Yohanna Izam, in ensuring that the university have four new faculties, appealed to the university’s union to always channel their grievances appropriately for dialogue rather than embark on frequent strikes,

He stressed that even developed countries go through such challenges but they always ensure that the future of the young ones was not affected.

He pledged to ensure that salaries are paid and the university witnesses convocation before leaving office, stating that it gives him joy to always reward excellence.

Ike commended the governor’s passion for education, stating that education was the best legacy anyone can give to the society as it was the bedrock of national development.

He also thanked the governor for reviewing upward the funds the university gets monthly in spite of the harsh economic realities faced in the country.

Ike appealed to the government to set a date aside for the convocation for graduating students of the university, stating that it was important to have one before transitioning into a new government.

He said that the convocation would also be a way of showcasing and celebrating the accomplishments of students and at the same faculty members, staff members and the external community of the university.
