The Vice-Chancellor of University of Nigeria, Nsukka, Prof. Charles Igwe has commended the Governing Council of Federal College of Education, Eha-Amufu for being the first Governing Council of an affiliated institution to pay a courtesy visit to UNN in the recent times.
He gave the commendation when the Governing Council Chairman of the College, Doifie Buokoribo led members of the Council to the Vice-Chancellor’s office on a courtesy visit.
The Vice-Chancellor assured the Governing Council of FCE Eha-Amufu that his administration will make sure that they succeed because if the College succeeds, UNN has equally succeeded. “If you are able to produce more reliable, well trained teachers, UNN will definitely consider itself successful too, therefore, my administration will do everything possible to see that our existing relationship is maintained so that we both can succeed,” he said.
The Vice-Chancellor equally pointed out that the College and the University will always adopt the option of dialogue in any place both parties find themselves wanting because that is the principle that modern leaders adopt to iron out grey areas.
The Chairman of the Governing Council of the College, Mr. Doifie Buokoribo, in his address, appreciated the Vice-Chancellor for receiving them warmly despite his tight schedule.
He went further to stress that the Council during their inaugural meeting in May, 2021, resolved to pay a courtesy visit to UNN. “As this Council came on board, in our maiden meeting, we resolved as a matter of priority that we will come to our parent University, UNN to pay our respect. We are ready to learn from you. We are ready to cooperate with you. We will need your guidance and academic mentorship,” he said.
The Council Chairman equally solicited the Vice-Chancellor’s cooperation and goodwill as the College which has been affiliated to UNN for the past three years, will be making further requests in future for the progress of the College.
