The executive committee members of the Association of Heads of Federal Ministries, Departments and Agencies (Co-HEADs) in Nasarawa State have lauded Federal University Lafia for its adherence to the Federal Government’s policy on admissions and infrastructural development. The members made this known, recently, during a courtesy visit on the Vice-Chancellor of FULafia, Prof. Muhammad Sanusi Liman, at his office in Lafia. Speaking on behalf of the body, Mr Musa Katai, the chairman, stated that they were in the university to felicitate with Liman and Dr Abubakar Mamuda, on their appointments as the second vice-chancellor and registrar of the university.

 

He thanked the university for admitting some members of his association after they met the strict admission requirements, saying that they were satisfied that due process was adhered to by FULafia in the admission process.

Katai also thanked the vice-chancellor for hosting the Co-Heads, saying that they were delighted with the level of infrastructural development recorded in the university within the short time of its existence.

 

He expressed the association’s confidence in the ability of the vice-chancellor and the registrar to continue with the laudable project of growing FULafia to the highest academic standards. He informed the vice-chancellor that the Co-Heads had more than 70 members with most of them located in Lafia, the Nasarawa State capital, with few others found in Federal Polytechnic, Nasarawa, Federal Medical Centre, Keffi, Federal Government College, Keffi, National Steel Raw Material Research and Exploratory Agency, Obi, Federal Science and Technical College, Doma, and Federal Government Girls College, Keana.

 

Katai said that in 2002, Co-HEADs members, in their resolve to contribute to the education sector in Nasarawa State, established a nursery/primary school known as Federal Staff Nursery/Primary School Lafia, through personal contributions.The elated chairman stated that the school had graduated 11 sets of pupils who had gained admission into secondary schools “and they are now making CO-HEADs proud.” He mentioned some of the challenges facing the association to include nonpayment of annual dues by members and repayment of N3m loan the association obtained in 2006 to develop its permanent site, calling on the vice-chancellor to assist the association.

 

In his response, the vice-chancellor, who was represented by the registrar, Dr Abubakar Mamuda, thanked the executive committee members for the visit, expressing his happiness with the contributions made by the association to develop education in the state. The vice-chancellor promised to look into the issues raised by the association with a view to assisting it.
