PROF BALA COMMENDS FUTMINNA CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY ... I Will Be Fair, Just

 

The Vice-Chancellor gave this commendation yesterday when the University Christian community paid him a courtesy visit to felicitate with him on his well-deserved appointment as the new helmsman of the University at the VC’s Conference Room, Main Campus.

Prof. Bala stated that members of the University Christian community have made substantial contribution to the progress and development of the University, adding that the University would not have been where it is today if not for the cooperation and support of the Christian community.

The Vice-Chancellor thanked the University Christian community for praying and fasting for peaceful transition in the University.

“Many members of this community prayed and fasted that we should have somebody from within to be the Vice-Chancellor and God has granted us that wish. We have to make best use of this opportunity to tell the world that the University has come of age and that we do not need people from outside to come and be superintending over us”, Prof. Bala disclosed.

He reiterated the need for the University to begin to have an orderly transition process, saying that the University has the capacity in terms of human resources, cooperation among staff and the prevailing peace in the University.

The University helmsman said he will be fair and just in the discharge of his duties as the Vice-Chancellor of the University without recourse to race, ethnicity, religion, political differences or tribe.

“In terms of fairness and justness, only God can be perfect but I know that I shall try my best to be as inclusive as it is practically possible. I don’t intend to be bias in favour or against any segment or community”. “I will be father to everybody within the University because I have taken that solemn oath and I intend to abide by that oath. Not that I will not make mistake, I am human but God sees my heart and God knows that I have no intention of shortchanging anybody”, the VC enthused.

He further assured them of the University Management support towards ensuring that they have places of worship worthy of the Christian community and the University.

Speaking earlier, the Chairman, FUT, Minna, Chapel of Grace, Dr. Mathew Kolo said the Christian community in FUT, Minna work within the vision of the University and that of the present administration to mode lives that would become instrument of growth and development in the society.

Dr. Kolo expressed appreciation to the University Management for supporting the various religious bodies on campus, particularly in the construction of worship places and solicited for further financial support.
Earlier in his address, the Chairman, St. Malachy’s Chaplaincy, FUT, Minna, Prof. Husseini Anthony Makun congratulated the Vice-Chancellor on his appointment and urged him to be fair and just in the discharge of his duties.

The highpoint of the visit was the presentation of the Holy Bible by Rev. Dr. Michael Onimole to the Vice-Chancellor of the University. The Reverend read Second Chronicle chapter 1: 6-12 and the book of Jeremiah chapter 9; verse 23-24 to the VC before presenting the Holy Bible to him. He urged the Vice-Chancellor to make out time to read the Holy book so that he can gain more wisdom and knowledge on how to move the University to greater heights.
