Food SecurityPRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari has commended the Governing Council, the Vice-Chancellor and his Management Team for maintaining relative peace in the University and a stable academic calendar, even in the face of occasional hiccups arising from national industrial actions by the various Staff Unions, with an assurance that his administration will continue to work toward an inclusive economy that will adequately cater for them and their families.

To this end, the president said, “during the 11th Convocation Ceremony a year ago, we laid the foundation stone for some infrastructural projects and commissioned completed ones.

“It is gratifying that for this 12th Convocation ceremony, additional completed projects have been commissioned and the foundation stones laid for other projects.”

The congratulatory message was presented by the Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof Ahaneku Joseph Eberendu, before the 7,731 graduating Students.

Buhari, who charges the graduands to quipped up and familiarize themselves with the opportunity of these programmes to become gainfully employed, as the world they are entering into is rapidly changing more than ever before.

The president noted that the Federal Government is giving a primacy of place to education, particularly tertiary education, with the constraints of available financial resources and the competing needs of other sectors of the economy.

“As part of our effort in this direction, we have put in place, through the Rural Electrification Agency, the Energizing Education Programmes, with the intent of, inter alia, providing off-grid captive Power Plants for tertiary institutions, thus freeing them from vulnerable dependence on the national grid.

“On account of the enviable performance of Nnamdi Azikiwe University in infrastructural and other developments, the President said the University was chosen as one of the nine universities drawn from the six geopolitical zones of the Country to benefit from the phase 1 of the project.”

Buhari also commended the management of the institution for inviting him to the 12th Convocation Ceremonies, being the third that the present administration of the University is holding in three successive academic years.

The Vice-Chancellor, Prof Ahaneku Joseph, on his part, appreciated the President for acknowledging the 12th Convocation Ceremonies, and promise to initiate more developmental programmes for the University.
