Following the immediate official handingover of constructed and renovated facilities of Confluence University of Science and Technology, CUSTECH, Osara, in Adavi Local Government by Kogi State Government through the Commissioner for Education Hon. Wemi Jones to the Management of the newly established University on Monday, Comrade Jacob Abraham Damilare has described the executive Governor of Kogi State, His Excellency, Alhaji Yahaya Bello as “a friend of the students, an Ambassador of quality Education and a man of his words”.
According to Abraham Jacob, Governor Yahaya Bello has not just pronounced the establishment of another State owned University in black and white with the approval of the Kogi State House of Assembly, he has gone as far as backing this pronouncement with the speed of light actions in ensuring that the university does not end up being referred to as “a white elephant Project”.
“Gov. Yahaya Bello’s monumental idea for establishing CUSTECH and his strong political will cum financial backup for the institution must not be left unappreciated. He has in less than one year of establishment, given the new University a global admiration. The speed at which construction and rehabilitation of buildings has gone is really commendable”.
“It is a thing of joy to know that the government has officially handedover the keys to the facilities of the institution to the Vice Chancellor, Professor Salawu Sadiku, for onward commencement of academic and non academic activities”.
He noted that the commitment of Governor Yahaya Bello towards the improvement of the Education Sector in the state is obvious in words and backed with actions, stressing that with the rate at which the Educational system is being operated in Kogi State under the watch of Yahaya Bello, optimism that Kogi will soon become the hub of modern day Education in science and technology is never on the low.
“Confluence University of Science and Technology, is an institution established to fill in the vacuum in Medicine, Engineering, Agriculture and other science related disciplines and to also bring quality Education closer to our students and as we will keep our hopes high on the resuscitation of Ajaokuta steel company, the institution is also available as a panacea to provision of science and Technological Know-how expertise”. The importance of the establishment of this institution can never be overemphasized.
The Unionist further charged indigenes of the State to grab the opportunity of enrolling for academic programs in the institution since it has officially started its program.
“Since the institution has with immediate action commenced its academic programs, I enjoin Kogi State Students to patronise the institution without thinking twice because this opportunity is what we must never allow to pass us by especially as the school fees falls on a favourable amount for us despite the harsh Economic weather”.
History will never be in a hurry to forget the achievements of Governor Yahaya Bello in the lives of Kogi State Students and the Nigerian Students in general. This institution will not just be beneficial to Kogi State Students but to the Nigerian Students and the global students Community at large.
