On behalf of my family and the university management, I express my profound appreciation to the entire university community, individuals and groups, for making the occasion of our first year anniversary in office a grand one. By your huge turnout, contributions and support, you made today’s anniversary very colourful.

Not only that, your kind testimonies about our performance in the last one year were humbling, and serve to motivate us to continue to do more. Indeed, you have put us to task again and by His grace, we shall not disappoint.

Like I alluded to earlier today, the success we have recorded in the last one year has been made possible by your cooperation and you again showed it today that you are with us on this journey to a glorious destination. I am indeed happy that I have you as family.

I pray that the Almighty God will bless you and raise men and women to support your good visions. Amen.
