After setbacks caused by Boko Haram attacks and industrial unrest between staff and management, the Adamawa State University is set to graduate 92 first-class students.

Vice-Chancellor of the university, Prof Kaletapwa Farauta, who disclosed this, said 11,533 other students will also be graduating.

The event, scheduled for Saturday, March 13, will be the 5th-13th combined convocation involving the past nine sets of students of the university.

Prof Kaletapwa Farauta gave the indications Friday morning during a press conference at the university main campus in Mubi, saying, “After a series of concerted efforts, Adamawa State University, Mubi, is set to finally graduate nine sets of students.

She explained that the graduands comprise 10,771 undergraduates and 1,079 postgraduates.

She gave the breakdown of the graduands as First Class 92, Second Class Upper 482, Second Class Lower 4,975; Third Class 2,384; Pass 291.

She added that 21 will be graduating with PhD, 482 with Master’s; and that there will be 318 graduating with postgraduate diploma (PGD).

The Adamawa State University which was established in 2002 by the state government when Mr Boni Haruna was governor, suffered Boko Haram invasion in 2014.

The insurgents who seized the enitre Mubi South and Mubi North LGAs, made the university their Headquarters, with the Senate Building as their administrative block and the VC’s office as the Boko Haram commander’s office.

After the Boko Haram elements were chased out, workers’ strikes became the order of the day until the entire management staff were swept out and the current VC and other members of her team were appointed, first on an acting capacity in 2017 and more recently, on a permanent basis.

The VC who said the state government and Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund) had done much to rebuild the university after the Boko Haram invasion of 2014, added that industrial harmony had long returned after consistent endeavours to restore staff privileges and rights.
