A Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria representing Niger East Federal Constituency, David Umaru has commended the management of Bowen University for raising future leaders who are decent, exceptional and of good moral standing. He stated this during a courtesy visit paid to him by Rev. Dr. Larry Ayuba, Mrs. Foluke Ayuba Director DIACA (Directorate of Institutional Advancement and Corporate Affairs), and the secretary of the parents forum, Prince (Hon.) Bisi Ogunkale.
Prior to that, the senator representing Nassarawa North Federal Constituency showered praises on Bowen University and the Vice Chancellor Professor Joshua Ogunwole for spearheading the fight against drug peddling and abuse, after the meeting of Bowen University’s top management and stakeholders (which include parents and alumnus) at First Baptist Church Area 11, Garki-Abuja on Sunday 20th January, 2019.
Parents who were present at the meeting which began at 2pm were given opportunity to bare their minds and ask questions concerning issues which concern their wards. They collectively agreed that the fight to rid the University of drug-related issues and other social vices is an all-inclusive fight that would involve more than the school authorities.
Bowenians (alumnus of Bowen University) present at the meeting expressed their gratitude and resolve to be great ambassadors of Bowen University in their various fields, and to do all in their power to ensure the core values of the institution are upheld.
In a chat with Bowenians, the Vice Chancellor reiterated his commitment to developing and supporting entrepreneurship, innovation, ground breaking research and technological advancement, and told them not to hesitate to reach out to him with their ideas on how to further develop their alma mater.
