“Professor Asiabaka has brought about monumental physical development and infrastructure into FUTO and the university is now being governed with strict sense of discipline.'

Enemuo said this while commending the outgoing Vice Chancellor of the University, Professor Cyril Chigozie Asiabaka for his effort at the valedictory colloquium in honour of the VC.

Professor Asiabaka's tenure will end this month and is expected to hand over to the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Administration), Professor Francis Chukwuemeka Eze as his successor.

According to Enemuo, the institution which is the nation’s premier university of technology established in 1980 by the Shehu Shagari administration now ranked 8th best in the ranking of universities in the country by the National Universities Commission, NUC, as against its former 48th position.

“Professor Asiabaka has brought about monumental physical development and infrastructure into FUTO and the university is now being governed with strict sense of discipline, there are no more examination malpractices, selling of handouts, sexual harassment and cultism is now a thing of the past in FUTO.”

Enemuo, however, attributed the modest achievement of the outgoing Vice Chancellor to the unflinching support and cooperation of the members of the University Governing Council and enjoined them to extend same to his successor.
