The Council of Registered Builders of Nigeria (CORBON) has commended the Vice-Chancellor of Plateau State University (PLASU), Bokkos, Prof. Yohana Izam, for his landmark achievements in project execution.
Prof. Kabir Bala, CORBON Chairman, lauded the VC on Saturday when he led a team of council officials on a courtesy visit, said Izam was fast changing the face of the institution.
In a press release, signed by Mr John Agam, PLASU’s Public Relations Officer, noted that Bala, currently the Vice Chancellor of Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, stated that the visit is to identify with Izam over his appointment and achievements as PLASU’s fourth Vice Chancellor.
“I can vividly recall your mentorship role as a council member, training and assessments for doctoral and professorial appointments and revival of the journal of the Nigerian Institute of Building.
“We are indeed proud of you and other builders who are in leadership positions for holding forth for the council by successfully combining their high level academic and administrative responsibilities, both at the national and international levels, ” Bala said.
Responding, Izam appreciated members of the council for the show of solidarity and support to him, especially at a time like this.
Izam commended them for their pivotal roles in uplifting the building profession.
“Your visit will further spur me to consolidate on the achievements already made by widening the choices of programmes and courses of study at PLASU,” he said.
He said despite the chequered history of the university, which challenged its growth, the institution was desirous of moving at great speed from a four-faculty university to meeting his vision of expansion to catch up with older universities and change the narrative of growth and development.
Before leaving the university, the visitors toured ongoing building projects and praised the vice chancellor for the pace and quality of work.
