Babangida’s name opens doors, says VC
The Vice Chancellor of Niger State-owned Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida University, Lapai, Niger State (IBBUL), Prof Ibrahim Kolo, has said the name of the former military President Gen. Ibrahim Babangida has open doors and paved the way for him and the institution.
The university administrator spoke yesterday in Minna, the state capital, when he led the IBBUL management to the 73rd birthday of the former military leader at his Hilltop residence.
Kolo said the government’s naming of the institution after the former military leader had brought several fortunes to the university from within and outside the country.
He said: “Your Excellency, we, at IBBUL, are proud to be associated with you. Your name has opened doors and paved the way for this young state-owned institution and for me as the vice chancellor. Many people within and outside the country are always ready to assist the university whenever they hear your name.
“The naming of the institution after you is of great blessing to us. It has tremendously been beneficial to the university and we are grateful for this honour. Your name has indeed earned the institution recognition at many fora.”
The vice chancellor decorated Gen. Babangida with the institution’s Grand Honorary Fellowship Award for his contribution to the university.
