PHOTO NEWS: FUL Administration Relocates to the Permanent Site (Felele Campus)


The Management of Federal University Lokoja (FUL) has finally relocated and commenced administrative operations at the University’s Permanent Site in Felele, along Lokoja-Okene road, with the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Angela Freeman Miri and the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Professor Makanjuola Olayemisi Osagbemi moving their offices from the Adankolo Campus to the Felele Campus on Monday, 5th October, 2020.

In line with her vision upon assumption of office in February, 2016, the Vice-Chancellor had announced the official movement during the 3rd & 4th Combined Convocation Ceremony held on Saturday, 14th December, 2019 at the Permanent Site, following the Governing Council’s meeting earlier held on the Site on 11th December, 2019.

Professor Miri maintained that since her assumption of duty, it has been her desire that Federal University Lokoja begins operation at the Permanent Site where opportunities, especially with respect to the vast space for fast and steady development, abounds. She noted that the movement will pave the way for further growth and rapid development of the University, as the Adankolo Campus could no longer accommodate more infrastructure especially for the newly established faculties and programmes.

Even though the planned movement had suffered some initial setbacks due to the COVID-19 pandemic that resulted in the shutting down of all Tertiary Institutions across the country, that did not deter the University Management who were determined and have been working round the clock to ensure that the movement was possible in spite of the challenges.

Aside the completion of the existing structures, there are also visible massive infrastructural development ongoing at the Permanent Site through various TETFund Funded Interventions, most of which are now at the completion stage. Some of the structures at the New Campus are ready for occupation.

Federal University Lokoja will maintain dual campuses. While the Faculty of Science will remain at the Adankolo Campus for proximity to the ultra-modern laboratories constructed under the current administration, the Faculties of Arts, Social Sciences, Management Sciences, and Education respectively will move to the Felele Campus as the ongoing projects are being completed and furnished.

It is hoped that this bold step taken by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Angela Freeman Miri and her Management Team will usher in a new wave of development and transformation of the University at its Permanent Site, in the not too distant future.

Kudos to the current Administration for foresight, doggedness and determination to ensure that Federal University Lokoja ranks one of the best not only among its peers in the country but also, in Africa and the world.
