The Vice-Chancellor, Federal University of Lafia (FULafia) Professor Shehu Abdul Rahman, has inaugurated three different committees to help him tackle challenges facing the University.
The committees are the
Resources Mobilisation Committee, University Security Committee and Campus Sanitation and Beautification Committee to work hard to develop and attract resources needed to develop FULafia, charging the security Committee members to work with security agencies to secure lives and property of staff and students.
He reminded the members that nothing can be achieved in the University without the prevalence of security and, ultimately, peace.
On the task before the sanitation and beautification committee, the vice-chancellor observed that the need to maintain clean and beautiful environment cannot be overemphasised, appealing to staff and students to take the issue of hygiene seriously.
Prof. Abdul Rahman charged members of the committees to work for the betterment of the University, saying: “We all need to make sacrifices in order for us to have the beautiful and prestigious institution we want.”
