As part of its community service initiatives, the Federal University Lafia (FULafia) has carried out awareness campaign on the newly introduced Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) computer-based test across the three senatorial zones of Nasarawa State.

 

fulafia sensitization

 

Speaking, the Chairman of the University’s Community Service Committee Dr. Solomon Manzuchi, commended FULafi Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Muhammad Sanusi Liman, for orgarnising the sensitisation exercise in the state’s secondary schools.

 

Declaring the exercise open in Lafia, the vice-chancellor, represented by his deputy, Prof. Martin Ogbe, said that the university placed high premium on its community service programmes with a view to developing the people.

The sensitisation exercise included presentation on pre-registration and computer-based testing, procedures and policy for admission into Federal University Lafia and practical demonstration of computer-based test by participating students, facilitated by a computer analyst, Christian Maurice.

 

Some participatig students

 

The exercise was conducted at the Auditorium of Federal University Lafia, for secondary schools within and around Lafia, Rishama Comprehensive College hosted secondary schools from Akwanga, Wamba and Nassarawa Eggon and Government College, Keffi, welcomed schools from Keffi, Karu, Kokona, Nasarawa and Toto local councils.

Other activities carried out by the Community Service Committee of the university, included: skill acquisition training for indigent youths of maraban Akunza, Hand-washing awareness campaign in schools around Lafia, beatification of Maraban Akunza round-about and rehabilitation of borehole in Akunzan Jarmai.

The Head of Anti-Corruption Transparency Monitoring Unit, Federal University Lafia (FULafia), Mr. Ozomata Bashir, has described corruption as a disease which has negatively affected the society and the education sector in particular.

 

However, Bashir said that the management of Federal University Lafia under the leadership of Vice-Chancellor Prof. Muhammad Sanusi Liman, was ready to fight corruption in all its ramifications and defeat it comprehensively. He praised Liman for his zero-tolerance policy on corruption since he assumed office as the Vice Chancellor, last year.

 

Bashir spoke during the ended students orientation exercise organised for new students at the university’s Take-off Site Campus, Lafia. The title of his speech is “Promoting Integrity and Eradicating Corruption in Federal University Lafia.” He lamented that corruption, if allowed to persist, “erodes people’s trust, entrench maladministration and dethrones an ideal order of the day.” Bashir said that “corruption is synonymous with lack of ethical standard, transparency and accountability,” adding that it “distorts processes, procedures and government policy.”

 

Bashir said that the task of promoting integrity and eradicating the menace of corruption in the university and elsewhere was not sole responsibility of anti- corruption agencies, calling on everyone to join the crusade.

 

“Students and staff of this noble institution must inculcate and display the ethical values of integrity, transparency, accountability and say no to corruption in Federal University Lafia.”

 

He called on staffers and students to report all suspected cases of corruption to ACTU in Room AG 06, Administration Block in the permanent site of the university.

The Registrar, Federal University Lafia (FULafia), Dr. Idris O. Othman, has called on staff to adhere strictly to the university’s core values of integrity, innovations and excellence.

 

Idris, who stated this while speaking to FULafia Bulletin at his office, disclosed that his success as a University administration manifested in his ability to make workers embrace the university’s core values and made them serve as their guiding principles of operations.

 

He said: “Right from inception, we have tried to set and maintain standard in terms of building self esteem of administrative staff through engaging them to University activities at committee level. We train and retrain staff so that their orientation and attitude would fit into what we expect of the university’s staff.

 

“Compared with workers in other universities, our staffers have come a long way in achieving our university’s core values, especially in terms of appearance, attitude and job performance. But we were not there yet. There is need for improvement, specifically in the area of minutes writing and production.”

 

He pointed out that how the recent university’s employment scam in FULafia was handled by its administrators had portrayed their dexterity in handling crisis situation.

 

“Above all,” he said, “the Management has shown that FULafia is not ready to compromise on its values and standard. It clearly showed that the University is out to curtail all forms of vices.”

 

He advised members of staff not to compromise their integrity and work hard to develop the budding University.

Prof. Liman tells students: Shape in or out

Written by

For students who may wish to offer money and or sex for marks, Federal University Lafia (FULafia) is the wrong place for them to be and study, said the Vice Chancellor.

 

Speaking during the recently held 2016/2017 matriculation exercise at the University’s Take-Off Campus in Lafia, Vice Chancellor, Professor Muhammad Sanusi Liman also warned students to shun anti-social behaviours such as cultism and drugs addiction and take advantage of “our university’s learning and extra-curricular facilities to develop themselves”.

 

 The Vice Chancellor addressing the Matriculating Students

 

He said to the students that it was only by dedicating themselves to their books that they would reap the benefit of their stay in FULafia. He said: “By doing so, you make your stay in the University meaningful and useful to your academic careers and a source of satisfaction and pride to your parents and guardians as well as the country as a whole”.

 

Prof. Liman revealed that plan were underway to establish new faculties and programmes in the fields of education, management, environmental and medical sciences and engineering at the university. He called on matriculating students to work hard and abide the university’s rules and regulations.

 

“I call on you to dedicate your time to your books, despise habit of tweeting and posting on social media, to make worthwhile your stay at FULafia.”

 

The Vice Chancellor saluted parents for their sacrifice which he said had enabled students “to witness this momentous day in their academic development.”

 

 

During the annual exercise, about 1, 500 students took their oath of matriculation.
