The Vice Chancellor of Taraba state University Jalingo, Professor Vincent Ado Tenebe has challenged the newly admitted students who resumed for 2019/2020 academic session of the university to pursue excellence with passion and to remain focused on their academic pursuit in order to achieve greatness and fulfilment in life.
Professor Tenebe who was speaking at the 2020 resumption orientation program organized for newly admitted students of the university, noted with excitement that this is not the first set of students he is receiving as Vice Chancellor and charged them to make him proud.
The Vice Chancellor observed that since his resumption in 2017, he has engaged in various tours of the university facilities and is convinced that Taraba state University is indeed the hub of academic revolution.
He went further to assure the students of the commitment of the University management team, heads of units and all staff of their comfort and welfare throughout their stay on campus.
The VC described the University management team who also were in attendance at the orientation program as the compass the students need to navigate the university environment and encourage the students to feel free at all times to approach any of the officials of the university for guidance and assistance.
Earlier, Professor Tenebe had commended the University management team and staff members who were involved in the resumption and allocation of hostel rooms to the newly admitted students.
The Vice Chancellor had visited the male and female hostels severally to ascertain the level of preparedness of the university to admit and allocate students into various rooms.
He advised the newly admitted students to be watchful and shun anti social activities, that they are the hope of their parents and communities not to be mindful of their stay in the university but to do everything possible not to bring shame to their communities and parents.
