The members of staff, students and Alumni Association of Salem University Lokoja on Thursday, lauded the “pragmatic transformative visions and drive” of their Vice Chancellor , Prof. Alewo Johnson-Akubo.
The University’s Registrar, Dr. Emmanuel Adejoh, gave the commendation in a statement in Lokoja, to celebrate the records of Akubo who celebrated his 50th birthday.
The registrar said that the huge infrastructure development of Salem University was solely due to the visions and pragmatic efforts of the young and energetic Vice Chancellor.
Adejoh described Akubo as a fine administrator, disciplinarian and quintessential leader of tremendous impact, not only to Salem University, but to Kogi and Nigeria as a whole.
“We, today felicitate our Vice Chancellor, whose Golden Age can best be described as God’s divine gift and grace upon him, looking at what he has so far attained in life.
“Aside being a young administrator, Akubo is a Pastor in God’s Vineyard, working assiduously at spreading the gospel of Truth for the salvation of souls from the societal ills ravaging the entire globe as well as impacting on students by transforming them into global change agents.
“At joining Salem University Lokoja, Akubo served as the pioneer Coordinator, Mass Communication Programme, Deputy Dean, College of Management and Social Sciences and Deputy Director, Academic Planning between August, 2016 and July 2017.
He said that with impactful leader, the institution had been able to have virtually all its courses accredited by the National University Commission (NUC).
The registrar, however, said that it was a thing of joy that the entire staff, students and Alumni Association of Salem University Lokoja joined other well wishers in celebrating such a man in Akubo.
He “is truly a shining example to all Nigerian youths,” the registrar said.
Adejoh said, “on behalf of staff, students and Alumni Association of the Salem University Lokoja, I wish Prof. Akubo, more divine wisdom, knowledge, sound health, peace and joy as he celebrates his 50th birthday.” (NAN)(www.nannews.ng)
