The Federal University, Wukari in Taraba, has conferred honourary degrees on Lt. Gen. Theophilus Danjuma (rtd), as well as the Aku Uka of Wukari, Dr. Shekarau Angyu.
Also honoured by the institution is the Ona of Abaji, Alhaji Adamu Baba Yunusa, who is also to be installed the first Chancellor of the institution which was established in 2011.
Its Vice Chancellor, Prof. Abubakar Kundiri, disclosed this on Friday, at a press conference in Wukari, to kick start activities lined up for the university’s maiden convocation ceremony slated for Saturday, March 4.
The Vice Chancellor said that the three Nigerians were being recognised for their enormous contributions toward a greater Nigeria.
He announced that 394 candidates would be awarded first degrees, with 16 of them graduating with First Class.
According to him, 116 bagged Second Class Upper Division, with 192 getting Second Class Lower Division, while 20 had Third Class degrees.
Reviewing his achievements in the one year he had served as Vice Chancellor, Kundiri said that he was able to complete the library, ICT Centre, as well as two lecture theatres with capacities for 1000 and 600 seats, respectively.
He said that many other facilities had been put in place to qualify the institution to resubmit its 18 unaccredited courses for further assessment by the National Universities Commission.
Kundiri expressed satisfaction with the peaceful atmosphere of Wukari, hitherto seen as a war zone, noting that the school, for the first time, had an uninterrupted academic session between 2016 and 2017.
He solicited stakeholders’ support toward building a conducive environment for effective learning, research and community service.
