On Friday, February 25, 2022, Professor Bassey Ubom, Director of Development at the University of Abuja, and Professor Nasir Naeem, Senior Legislative Assistant to the DG of the National Institute for Legislative and Democratic Studies, Abuja, visited the proposed Pen Resource University in Gombe.
The professors were at the proposed PRU to witness the tremendous efforts and incredible facilities being put in place.
Profs. Bassey and Nasir were received and welcomed by the promoter of the proposed PRU. Dr. Sani Jauro and Dr. Sani Isyaka, the University’s Secretary and Member of the Planning and Implementation Committee, along with Malam Umar Zubair, Ag. Director of ICT designate.
Bassey and Nasir said they were overwhelmed by what they had seen on the ground, describing the efforts and facilities put in place as incredible and sprouting from a deep sense of commitment and patriotism.
Prof. Bassey Ubom, who is the Director of Development of the University of Abuja, said that the proposed Pen Resource University is indeed a taste of its class.
I am Professor Bassey Ubom. PRU is indeed a taste of its class. We thank the promoters and the owners of this university for making us proud. “I believe a private university of this caliber deserves full recognition,” he said.
“The proposed PRU has virtually all world-class facilities; it is indeed incredible and completely inimitable,” he added.
Prof. Ubom urged that the proposed pen resource university should be recognized all over the world.
I think, nationally, no one can make me say what I don’t want to say, but based on what I have seen here, from the classes, laboratories, libraries, student hostels, and all other facilities, the university deserves to be recognized all over the world”.
In his commendation, Professor Nasir Naeem hoped and wished that the good people of Gombe State and indeed the northern sub-region would value this great opportunity of having a private university in their midst and encourage the promoters to do more.
