“I also want to congratulate the Acting VC, because he has shown that he is capable og managing the University, as members of the management have shown that they are able to sustain the facilities they met and also improve on them.
“I want to commend them for some work they are doing without a third party intervention, and also the recruitment process is fantastic and that is why it is ranked third best state University in Nigeria.”

“I want to say it is a major milestone coming within two years of our coming on board and for us, it is an indication that we are actually doing something right.”
“I believe we are doing something right which has already been applauded, we want to promise that we will continue to move in that direction and hopefully, in the near future, we will not just be number three, we will be number one,” Aluyor said.
