The Vice Chancellor, Federal University Lafia (FULafia), Prof. Muhammad Sanusi Liman, has commended the Federal Government for its tireless efforts at providing befitting infrastructures in the University  the such of which we are taking over today from the contractor who has done a very good job worthy of commendation.

This effort, no doubt, will continue to help the University in surmounting the challenges that have often militated against effective teaching and learning in the University.

Prof Liman who was full of excitement during the handing over ceremony of a new Hall built for the University by the Federal Government, also said, without Government’s interventions in such areas of great need through the “NEEDS ASSESSMENT INTERVENTION FUNDS”, our Universities will have been facing serious challenges that would have grounded them due to lack of enough infrastructure.

He thanked the Federal Government for the project, noting that the University was privileged to be among the few that benefited from the government’s gesture.

The one storey building which is one of the Federal Government’s “NEEDS ASSESSMENT” interventions at FULafia, has four lecture rooms, each with a seating capacity of about 220 students.

Liman commended the contractors for doing a good job, adding: “I’m very happy to be handed this beautiful lecture complex.”

He therefore urged lecturers and students to put the facility into good use when the University is reopened.

Liman enjoined particularly students and other staff of the University to imbibe maintenance culture, saying: “If we don’t maintain our structures, sooner or later, we’ll be left with dilapidated structures.”

The contractors, while handing over the project to the Registrar, Dr. Abubakar Mamuda, who represented the vice-chancellor at the event, praised the University management for the support he enjoyed during the period of construction of the lecture halls.

He said that the complex was well built and “it would stand the test of time.”

The event was witnessed by the Director of Physical Planning, Arch. Joseph Akogwu and other staff of the University.
