The Vice-Chancellor, Federal University of Technology (FUT) Minna, Prof. Abdullahi Bala, has received gift of the Holy Bible from the University’s Christian Community as his Christmas gift.
The Vice-Chancellor was presented the gift by the community while the members paid him a courtesy visit to felicitate with him on his appointment as the new VC. Bala explained that members of the University Christian community had made substantial contributions to the progress and development of the University.
” I want to thank the Christian community for presenting a copy of the Holy Bible to me and I am assuring them I will not fail them.
“I am full of gratitude to the community for praying and fasting for the peaceful, smooth transition of another era in the university.
“Many members of this community prayed and had a fast that somebody from within the university be made the VC and God has granted us that wish.
“We have to make best use of this opportunity to tell the world that the university has come of age; we do not need people from outside to superintend over us as VC; we have the human resources here,” he said.
Bala promised to justify the confidence the university reposed on him and would be fair and just in the discharge of his duties as the Vice-Chancellor of the University without recourse to race, ethnicity, religion, political differences or tribe.
