“This year, the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria re-accredited our initially troubled MBBS programme with increased quota from 50 to 75, with prospects for further increase next year.

“Recently, we confidently presented 40 academic programmes for NUC Accreditation. Academic and physical infrastructure have been expanded with massive procurement of laboratory and workshop materials, furniture, vehicles, new network of roads and completion of Faculties of Arts and Pharmacy, Nursing Science and Directorate buildings,” he said in his statement.

According to him, “the Faculty of Management Building started on the 30th of April this year, and funded only from IGR is progressing with pace and should by the grace of God be commissioned at the next convocation in April next year.”

Meanwhile, he said that “the Faculties of Agriculture and Management sciences, transferred from the defunct Asaba campus, have been relatively well accommodated, with concerned staff setting down,” stating that “students’ hostels have now been rehabilitated and the hostel culture restored.”

Furthermore, he said that “the university environment is now transformed.”

“More importantly, there is palpable increasing cohesion, peace and camaraderie among staff. This is evident in the uninterrupted academic calendar,” he averred.

While thanking staff members for the role they played in his success story in 2023 and assuring them that 2023 promises more, he prayed that the peace, love and joy which Christmas brings be firmly established in their families.
