Benue State University Graduates Best Globally – VC


January 26, (THEWILL) – The Vice Chancellor of Benue State University, Makurdi, Professor Joseph Tor Iorpuu, has applauded the quality of graduates of the institution who, according to him, are doing well in their chosen careers across the globe.

Professor Iorapuu, who gave the applause at the grand finale of the one-week celebration to mark the 30th anniversary of the university held at the College of Medical Sciences auditorium on Friday, noted that no fewer than fifteen products of the university are currently in the Benue State House of Assembly.

“In the United Kingdom, three students of Benue State University came to greet me in the church. They are found in Nasarawa State, Federal Capital Territory and are doing well in their various trades,” he said.

He expressed optimism that in the next thirty years, the university will overcome the challenges of power supply as seen in the quality products graduates of the institution have displayed beside the auditorium hall.

The Vice-Chancellor, therefore, called on all not to be disillusioned because knowledge is power and thanked all for their time to attend the occasion.

In her remarks, former Vice Chancellor of the university, Professor Charity Angya, who was the Chairperson at the ceremony, said the celebration of thirty years of the university has allowed management to take stock of its past and present and chart a way forward for greater height.

“We are celebrating Benue State University’s 30 years of impact, productivity and excellence. All hands must be on deck to sustain the achievements posted so far,” Angya said.

Activities for the celebration included students’ carnival/rag day with Igede cultural performance, and old school music carnival by the Idoma cultural group, while the Tiv students took the stage with cultural attire.

Also on the schedule for the 4th day was the students’ enterprises competition at the COHS exhibition stand mounted by the Center for Entrepreneurship students, Center for Food and Technology Research, Department of Vocational and Technical Education, Information and Public Relations Unit and Mass Communication among others.
