The Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, last Thursday received the list of three Vice-Chancellor nominees from the Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of council of Benue State University, Professor Ode Ojowu.
The list, contained in a letter signed by Professor Ojowu, was handed over to Governor Ortom at Benue Peoples House in the presence of other council members including the Vice Chancellor, Professor Charity Angya and the Registrar, Dr. Timothy Utile.
According to the letter, Professors Nicholas Akise Ada, Julius Begha Ashiko and Moses Msugh Kembe, emerged as candidates for Vice-Chancellor of the University as listed in order of performance.
The letter indicated that the candidates emerged through a screening exercise conducted by the Senate and Governing Council.
It requested that Governor Ortom who is Visitor to the University should appoint a Vice-chancellor from the three listed above.
Receiving the names, the Governor expressed appreciation to the council for conducting a rancor free exercise.
He said he would pray for God’s guidance to enable him select the best candidate out of the three.
