Following incessant crises between Jukun and Tiv in Taraba State, especially in Wukari Local Government Area, the management of Federal University, Wukari, has partnered with the host community to guard against attack on the university.
Vice-Chancellor of the university, Professor Jude Rabo, disclosed this on Friday in an interview with journalists on the sideline of the institution’s first inaugural lecture delivered by Professor Samuel Ekanem in Wukari.
He noted that the institution had set up a host community body on security to stay proactive and guard against any attack on the school.
Rabo explained that with the recent security challenges in the country, there was the need to sustain the partnership for better security arrangement.
“The partnership with the host community will help forestall any possible attack on students and members of the university community.
“Security is everyone’s business and we must work towards protecting ourselves and our host community,” he said.
Meanwhile, Prof. Ekanem Asoquo in his inaugural lecture, highlighted the dangers of insecurity and proffered solutions to the threat to the development of education in the country.
This is even as he harped on the value of philosophy in education and technological development in Nigeria and Africa.
