“But for the unfortunate incidence of COVID-19 pandemic which has brought the entire world to its knees, this would have been a truly golden celebration.

“As the 10th substantive vice chancellor of this great institution, let me reaffirm my commitment and dedication to building on the platform of achievement by my predecessors as we work to take the University of Benin to the pedestal of a modern and world class institution.

“I, therefore, stand to serve our diverse student community and promise to encourage everyone who is committed to positive change for this great institution in whatever way possible,” she said.

“In the years ahead, we shall continue to deploy cutting edge technologies to build human capacity so as to make the University of Benin a world-class educational institution and an innovation as well as technology hub in Africa.

“I appreciate Papa Felix Omobude, the National President of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, who honoured our invitation at a short notice because of his love of our university.

“The sacrifices of our resident religious ministers are also not unnoticed including Venerable Osaze Egbenusi, Rev. Fr. Andrew Obiyan and Prof. B.A Ayinde; may God reward your labours of love,” she said.
