The Governor of Nasarawa State, Engineer Abdullahi A. Sule, has distributed some items to the students of Federal University of Lafia (FULafia).

The distribution of the items was made through a joint team of the Nasarawa State Students Association (NASSA) and the Progressive Campus Youth (PCY) recently, at the Permanent Site Campus of the University.

However, before the distribution of the items, the leaders of NASSA and PCY paid a courtesy visit to the Vice-Chancellor, Federal University of Lafia (FULafia), Professor Shehu Abdul Rahman. 

The leader of the team, Mr. Jamilu Mustapha, said that they had visited other institutions to distribute the items containing beverages before coming to FULafla, thanking Abdul Rahman for warmly welcoming them.

He said that the gifts were put together by the Governor of Nasarawa State, Abdullahi A. Sule, to be distributed to students of some tertiary institutions within the state. 

"However, we decided to see the vice-chancellor before meeting with FULafia students," he said, praising the vice-chancellor for his "examplary administration of the University."

He said that members of the team were, specifically, at FULafia "to supervise distribution of the items and ensure that students benefit from the gesture of the governor."

The vice-chancellor, Professor Shehu Abdul Raman, represented by the Head of Information and Public Relations Unit of the University, Abubakar Ibrahim, thanked the governor and team's members for including FULafia in the list of institutions to be visited.

The vice-chancellor said that FULafia would continue to support the Nasarawa State Government, led by Abdullahi A. Sule, in its efforts to improve education and raise welfare standard of students.

He called on distributors of the items to do so "in line with the principles of Justice and fair play so that, in the end, you won't be accused of injustice or favouritism."

He thanked the governor for his gesture, saying that "for students, this generosity extended to them by the governor means a lot to them."
