May God in his infinite mercy bless you and reward you abundantly. You have been very supportive of Federal University Dutsin-Ma. We have been discussing severally about you.
“The Vice-Chancellor has said it all about you and your activities. That was why we even plan to pay you a thank-you visit, unfortunately, you are so busy, the schedule is so tight. You are out of the country. You are neither here nor there, you are around the globe, that was why we couldn’t make it.”

We appreciate, we are very grateful and we will continue to remain appreciative.
