118 students of the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University (ATBU) Bauchi have graduated with First Class in the last three years.

Vice Chancellor of the University Professor Saminu Abdulrahman Ibrahim disclosed this today during a press conference preparatory to the University’s 23rd, 24th and 25th joint convocation ceremony scheduled to take place on Saturday.

He noted that of the 118 who graduated with the First Class, five of them got 5 points in their cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA).

According to him, 8,496 graduates would be officially convocated on Saturday adding that the convocation lecture which would be delivered by the Group Managing Director (GMD) of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Dr Maikanti Baru would hold on Friday.

He said that President Muhammadu Buhari, Bauchi State Governor Mohammed Abubakar Minister of Education Adamu Adamu, Executive Secretaries of National University Commission (NUC),  Tertiary Education Trust fund (TETfund), National Assembly leadership and other dignitaries were expected to grace the occasion.

On the achievements recorded by the University in recent time, Professor Ibrahim explained that the newly established college of medical science has taken off two years ago with 88 students while management had supported 420 academic staff to go for PhD programs.

The Vice-Chancellor, however, stated that the major challenges faced by the institution at present ‘are inadequate subventions from the Federal Government to run the University and buses’ to transport students from yelwa to the main campus.
